Chuck Chillout was one of the first radio DJs to help get hip-hop on the airwaves in New York City in the 1980s. In celebration of his 40th anniversary on the radio, “Uncle” Ralph McDaniels and Bugsy host a bevy of old-school MCs and DJs at a party high on nostalgia and hip-hop history. The lineup includes the former gangster rapper and current Hollywood star Ice T; Brownsville, Brooklyn duo M.O.P., of “Ante Up” fame; Schoolly D, the influential Philly rapper and Afrocentric innovator who wrote the theme song to Cartoon Network’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force; Peter Gunz & Lord Tariq, whose Steely Dan-sampling hit “Déjá Vu” is an enduring Uptown classic; Queens duo Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud, who cut the cult classic 1988 LP Girls I’ve Got ‘Em Locked; CL Smooth, whose work with Pete Rock stands as some of the best rap of hip-hop’s Golden Age; Joeski Love, the MC best known for his massive 1986 single “Pee Wee’s Dance”; Pioneers D.J. Breakout and the Funky Four + 1, one of the earliest hip-hop groups to form in the Bronx, and featured in the classic film Wild Style; The Ultramagnetic MCs, the legendary Bronx crew that produced Kool Keith; NINE, the Bronx MC who caught his break on Funkmaster Flex and the Ghetto Celebs’ “Six Million Ways to Die”; Al B. Sure!; and Camp Lo, the Bronx duo comprising Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede, whose enduring hit “Luchini (This Is It)” is one of the most recognizable songs in hip-hop. DJ Chuck Chillout himself will also perform alongside his MC partner Kool Chip.
