December 31, 1988

For New Year’s Eve 1988, Eazy M and G finished up a classic year of hip-hop with a five-hour episode leading right up to midnight. Lots of guests in the studio, including Ministers of Black and Von Love.

Lots of great airbreaks from this early episode of Club Krush. Sides C and D are missing, perhaps because they were stolen by guests of the show (something that’s mentioned during the episode).

The majority of this comes from a soundboard recording provided by G, but the tail end (side G) was provided by Maitland Jones of Brooklyn, NY.
