On this episode of Queue points, in our ongoing #HipHop50 series, we spotlight the influential Idol Makers crew and the 1988 release, "Hurby's Machine." Our focus is Hurby "Luv Bug" Azor, a prodigious and prolific producer and writer whose career seemingly froze in the late '90s, and who has remained largely silent in recent decades.
Join DJ Sir Daniel as he navigates us through this often overlooked chapter of hip hop history, shedding light on Azor's career, the rise of Salt-N-Pepa and Azor’s central role in one of hip hop’s most legendary diss wars - MC Lyte vs. Antoinette. Alongside Jay Ray, DJ Sir Daniel delves into the compelling story of The Idol Makers, the compilation album "Hurby's Machine," and the crew's leader, Hurby Azor. Tune in for a conversation about one of hip hop’s unsung producers.
