One of the rare episodes where G (“Mr. Softee!!!”) isn’t in the studio until the very end of the show. During the first two airbreaks, Tone discusses getting the gas face after dissing Serch on stage. Tone shows a good sense of humor about it all by playing “Gas Face” after one of his own tracks (a love song I completely forgot about). At the end of side B into side C, Eazy pairs an EPMD instrumental with a Chill Rob G vocal, then a Chill Rob G instrumental with a De La Soul vocal. LA Law, Dre, and Lance are in the house. The show ends with G joining the crew and Eazy cutting off G and tone for discussing the story behind “Mr. Softee” because “we’re under FCC investigation.”

Nice, clean tape, full episode with no songs cut. Great selection, hilarious airbreaks, solid show all around.
