Time to Shine just added to Video: Archive

In 1997, Shades of Hip Hop released it’s 3rd video mixtape during the summer. Unlike R.I.P.- Tupac and B.I.G., released in April 1997, this tape was not all videos. Like the first video mixtape, Trains to Newark.NYC, this was chock full of original content. What was different about Time to Shine was that it took place mostly in the hood. This was the first video mixtaoe to venture into the hood to expose unsigned talent to the Hip Hop community. We showed a side of the culture which had never before been exposed to the public on video. After hearing so much on songs and seeing videos that gave glimpses of the Hip Hop lifestyle, this was the actual uncensored raw-form of it. Even Mobb Deep and Alchemist took note of the flavor when they saw a clip from Time to Shine and then created a song with Kool G. Rap called “The Realest”.
