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!
My Dad and I review original classic Hip-Hop casette tapes including The D.O.C, Eric B & Rakim, 7A3, Conscious Daughter, Slick Rick, Outkast, and many more!
This is the 2nd Madlib Medicine show to be featured on our “Vinyl of the Week” series. The first was “Medicine Show #5: History of the Loop Digga”
Ice Cube is one of the most prolific rappers of all-time! From penning NWA lyrics, to writing films, to being the leader of 3 separate rap groups – Ice Cube is a GOAT and early pioneer of indie Hip-Hop.
I came up on this legendary record at Mad Platter in Riverside! Vinyl of the Week #9 is Albertina Walker & Rev James Cleveland with the All Trinity Nation Choir – “Please Be Patient With Me”!
99.1 KGGI personality Rubi G and high school friend Rubi G pops in to discuss West Coast Hip-Hop, DJing vs Radio Personality, our Fav Projects of 2018, and more!
