Diggin In the Crates With Chubb Rock and DJ Bentroc
In addition to some of the hottest mixes, Diggin In The Crates features guest appearances by some of the biggest names in music. A former National Merit Scholar, Diggin In The Crates host Chubb Rock was a pre-med student who dropped out of Brown University to pursue his musical career. He was discovered and produced by his first cousin, DJ / Producer Howie Tee. Chubb Rock first appeared on the national scene with his 1988 self-titled debut “Chubb Rock” and 1989′s “And the winner is…” The latter produced the hit “Ya Bad Chubbs” which garnered air play on Yo! MTV Raps during that time. Chubb Rock’s 1991 release entitled “The One,” reached #13 on Billboard’s “Top Hip-Hop/R&B” chart for that year. Three singles from that release, “Treat’em Right,” “Just The Two Of Us” and “The Chubbster,” made it to #1 on Billboard’s “Top Rap Single” chart list for the same year.
