Reasons why I love Youtube # 33

Hooooooooooooooooooooly shit, it's amazing footage of a 1990 Elektra Records showcase called the Hard To The Left Rap Party featuring Brand Nubian and the first ever live performances by KMD, Pete Rock & CL Smooth (introduced by Heavy D and DMC!) and Leaders Of The New School. Apparently shot by Ralph McDaniels and DJ Iran :

Not had a chance to watch the KMD and L.O.N.S footage yet, but the Brand Nubian and Pete & CL performances are golden. Highlights include Puba instructing the crowd to chant "I ain't white!" at the end of of All For One and CL Smooth's distressed Canadian-tuxedo.

Ha yeh I was wondering if Dante was allowed show his face during the Bran Nubian set.

Easily one of the greatest things Ive seen on youtube. dying at Charlie Brown wearing the actual Charlie Brown jumper.
