This week on the Final Level podcast with Ice T and Mick Benzo, we re-air Ice and Mick's interview with Sal Abbatiello who owned and operated of the legendary Bronx hip-hop club the Disco Fever. Sal discusses the origins of the club, bringing hip hop from the streets into the club and the first time he saw a DJ grab a microphone and rhyme over it at a club. He tells the crew "It was like Moses...I saw the energy was way more powerful then when the DJ was just mixing the records because he, with the mic, can bring the crowd to a level they could never get which was the DJ mixing."

Music used In this Episode: Ice-T - "I Ain't New Ta This" Ice-T - "Thats How I'm Livin'
