Did a quick search but couldn’t see anything.
Travis et al, you seen this (probably yeah, years ago!) - I started watching it yesterday…
The bit where they talked about Rapper’s Delight was good.
Wouldn’t like to say how many times we watched this as kids. On the list of ‘must watch’ Hip Hop documentaries. Chalfont’s books, Subway Art and Spraycan Art, were undoubtedly responsible for literally millions of pounds worth of damage around the world. You’d struggle to find a writer from the 80s and 90s that didn’t get hooked via this film and those books….
@Travis_Bickle - check out the Hip-Hop Time Bomb(s);
Flaneur Some good years in there. Was playing this from ’83 yesterday. Conny Plank and Thomas Dolby part of the production team. Album was ahead if its time in some ways in terms of the sound
Trav, do you remember the Meanwood lads who were into dancing. They used to come to our youth club at Allerton Grange. First time I seen any breakdancers in matching trackie tops.
Mark Hyde was a name I remember.
Joseph Mills from Harehills was awesome ,seen him at Junior Ritzys. 😂😂
The MPs, Meanwood Posse I think it stood for, Latty and that lot.
Mark Hyde’s a name I know, and Mills. Sean Clarke at our school was in a B-Boy group called Enforce. Lad called Dennis too but can’t for the life of me remember his surname. They were on Calendar once, some competition YTV did.
Travis_Bickle thats them, decent lads. Latibodia forgot about him.
Tony Hannon brought few of the older lot down to a few Leeds games. Good lads top clobber, obviously the right wing element were having none of it. Shame
I’m just putting this here…
When this country’s good, it’s very good [history of hip-hop and indian tabla players in 4 and half minutes]. RESPECTO! Bunka means “culture” Ace man video..
Anyone seen this?
A lad I met in later life from Nottingham put me onto it - his wife hung around with them back in the day and has told me about the scene in Nottingham being ace.
Not seen this myself but wanna get a copy.
Probably the best Hip Hop gig I ever went to was the Cold Chillin’ tour at Rock City in ’88. Marley Marl and the whole Juice Crew. Big Daddy Kane, MC Shan, Bizmarkie, DJ Polo, Mr C, Cool V, TJ Swan, Roxanne, Mr Magic and my probably favourite MC Kool G Rap.
Any excuse……some great MCs on this but from 2.29 is probably my favourite rapping ever. Not the cleverest or whatever. So simple and so good. Kool G Rap is the don….
Evolution right here..
