Unkut Dot Com and Will C are offering a limited edition ‘No More Music By The Suckers’ 18″ x 24″ poster to celebrate the upcoming release of Will C’s compilation of Mr. Magic‘s finest moments called Down The Dial.
“Down The Dial” is sequenced to play like a Rap Attack show on any given night, front to back, with all the spontaneity one would expect to hear if they were transported back to the proper time and place. It is also simultaneously formatted to encompass all phases in the show’s decade long run, from the days of 1:00-4:00 AM on 105.9 WHBI to Saturday nights on 107.5 WBLS 8:00-12:00 PM. The listener essentially becomes Slaughterhouse Five’s Billy Pilgrim in a state of Rap Attack bliss. Complete with appearances from Mr. Magic himself, the Diabolical Biz Markie, and countless others, and with vintage glimpses at how “sister station” competitors were reacting to “The Official Voice of Hip Hop” at the time, “Down the Dial” meticulously pays homage.
We’ve got posters to give away to the first three people to correctly answer the following:
1. What year did the “Rap Attack” end its run on WBLS?
2. Name the two records that comprised the standard opening music for the “Rap Attack” (Artist and Title).
Send your answers here.
