Default This is going to be a tough one, I think

So, in recent months I have started listening to a local (New Hampshire) radio station called WXGR- If you go online and listen to this radio station: you can easily get addicted- it's all unusual music, but almost all of it sounds listenable, and addictive, songs like: şiki şiki baba by Gaetano Fabri & Kocani Orkestar, and 'Ow Much? by Creature.

About once per hour, between songs, the station will play a clip of something (non-musical) from the very early days of recording, such as "Are you aware that uranium is more than a weapon- someday it will improve all of our lives with things like free electricity?"

So, recently there was a particular song that I don't know the name of, and don't really know the lyrics to either- but I'll explain it as best as I can with what I remember: It seemed to be most likely a "rap" style of song with rap music also. There was two distinct male vocalists, with nothing particularly unusual about the rap music, except for one distinctive feature:

Part way through the song, the "secondary" (background?) vocalist started hollering a certain phrase in his lyrics: "...ON THE WEST SIDE GRID, ON THE LEFT SIDE GRID, ON THE WEST SIDE GRID", in a very gravely and authoritative voice. Later the song reverts to rapid rap, as rap songs usually do.

The WXGR "Song Playlist" listed it as A1 45 12, by The Beatstalkers. The only "Beatstalkers" I could find any information on are a known sixties era Scottish Rock 'n Roll group, probably not the rap group that sang this particular song.

That's about the extent of the information I have on that song- that I only heard one time.

So, does anybody know of a rap-ish song with somebody yelling "WEST SIDE GRID", or something like that? Or is this, possibly, an "un-released" song of some type?

Below is a "screenshot" of the playlist from taken a short while after the song had finished playing, it's the fifth item down from the top of the playlist.

Thank you in advance for any response!

This is the closest to what you're describing that I could come up with...

The Beatstalkers - Step Pon

Default Almost sounds like it...

At first I almost thought that might have been the right one, in the song I'm referring to you can hear the male vocalist clearly yelling "WEST SIDE GRID".

Maybe it was some kind of a "one-off", unreleased song that nobody's ever heard of. PS: Unfortunately the radio station won't reply to "fan-mail", they probably have the info on all their music.

Thank you much for the reply, below is another, slightly different, screenshot of the "playlist", in this shot- the song is the eighth item down from the top.

This came up in a "the beatstalkers rap" google search:
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

Default Enigmatical

I guess we may never know the answer to this one, especially when only one radio station plays that song, and only once in a blue moon, and won't reply to emails sent to them about it. Maybe it's foreign- but who knows- it'll probably remain a mystery.
