Purpose of the Remembering Tony D Blog

Peace, this blog is a work-in-progress, if the audio streams are down check back in 24 hours as we are working on securing a reliable host. This blog is a labor of love that has been created by Shawn “Lov” Livernoche and fam. The purpose of the blog is to share and preserve the works of my friend and collaborator Tony D, particularly his more “under-the-radar” musical contributions. Also, I would like to pay homage to and celebrate other published collaborations with Tony D and other artists and labels post PRT era (1993 and beyond) including but not limited to Strong Peeps, Scott Lark, DJ Fatha Ramzee, Kaaos (WB's), Rahzii High Powa, Hit Squad, Isis, Pace Won, Outsidaz, Self (Custodian of Records), Don Blaq, Big Ooh, DJ PLEXX, Grand Central Records, Low-Key, and many other Trenton natives.

Tony D was a true Hip-Hop Legend and his entire body of work deserves to be celebrated. I have many radio interviews on cassette, WPRB episodes from the early 90's, videos of our own Hip-Hop adventures, mp3 files of his lesser known 12 inches with a variety of Trenton artists and pictures. Because uploading and converting everything myself is a daunting task it will take me some time. I wish to do all I can to promote and celebrate our friend Tony's legacy with class and with respect. Until then, put on some Tony D music and remember a Rap Triple OG who left us too soon. Please make donations- info at the top of the page. Thanks to Massive for his commitment to building a website Tony D would smile at. Any contributions to this page or comments are appreciated.

ATTN: STRONG PEEPS TRACKS DOWN, THEY WILL BE BACK SOON!

The WB's: Live From Anthrax Capital

We had a lot of fun making this CD-- At the time I think Kaaos and I were barely working-- I was fresh out of college- I couldnt find a teaching job, Kaaos was working part time, so we would spend hours at Tony's place hanging out, writing and recording. Mainly the album is just the expression of three white dudes who have different ways of fitting in making Hip-Hop... the chemistry on the album sort of reveal Kaaos and I to be Tony's fans as well as collaborators. Tony produced and directed most of the songs, performed verses, chorus's and scratches throughout--He made a very small release of the project himself on Cha Ching Records- Since I am unsure if it is still available for purchase I will only upload 2 songs for preview.
