This is an experiment, not that we’ll do anything with the data, we’re just curious. Tell us your personal introduction to hip-hop story. I’ll tell you mine.
I pretty much was aware of hip-hop in the 80′s as a 12 year old, but the first song that really resonated with me was Tone Loc’s “Wild Thing”, followed by “Funky Cold Medina”. I bought the album, but thought it sucked, so I tossed it. After school I would hang at my friend’s house, who would always turn on Yo!, and I saw the video for Special Ed’s “Think About It”. This was probably the coolest thing I had seen at the time, from Ed’s rhymes-within-rhymes, to him piloting a damn hovercraft through the park. After buying Youngest In Charge on tape, and listening to dubs of Public Enemy It Takes A Nation Of Millions album, my love for hip-hop took on a life of it’s own. And the rest is history…..
