Playing tracks by

Part 2 of my mission to document a complete history of Hip Hop. This one covers 1984-1987 the advent of the big arsed beat! It was supposed to cover 1988 too, but Hip Hop, as it did back then evolved yet again and became much more technical and lyrical, so that will be covered in part 3 (my favourite period!) Saying that though, 2 out of my fave3 tracks are included in this one, Funky and Eric B for President. Crackly, noisy, out of time and badly produced but absolute classic raw Hip Hop. Enjoy......
