Top Shelf Studios


Top Shelf Wikipedia

No one has love for the legends anymore. With D&D's passing, and no way to find info on the ol skool, I figured it was about time one of NY's legends got its shine. So this is a little tribute to Top Shelf Studios, one of Hip Hop's by gone legends, and the place to be in 80's. If not for the Tompkins Square Riot of 1988, Top Shelf would still be the place where all of the legends went to lay it down. If It was good enough for Kane, Biz and Puba, I'm sure Biggy, Pac and Jay-Z would have felt at home there. They just don't make studios like they used to.
