Vinyl of the Week💿 #12: The Watts Prophets – Rappin’ Black in A White World

     I‘m ready to challenge the “Hip-Hop started in Late-1970s Bronx” narrative. The Watts Prophets (from Watts, Los Angeles) 1971 album “RAPPIN’ BLACK IN A WHITE WORLD” is a classic and staple in Hip-Hop history, influencing the likes of Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and more!

LA is also home to the 1st all Hip-Hop radio station – KDAY. VOTW #10 is “The Watts Prophets – Rappin Black in A Black World”!
