TFIF (The ‘Rapper’s’ One) – 2020.08.21



Hip Hop began as a musical culture in New York in the early 1970’s, when DJs played Disco, Funk and Soul records at block parties. They quickly realized the best part of the songs being played were the breaks, so they started using multiple turntables and techniques like mixing and scratching to extend the breaks. Next, MCs were introduced to excite the crowds by rhyming and boasting over the music, which evolved into rapping.

Fast forward to the late 70’s and early 80’s. Artists began to blend Hip Hop culture with Disco music and created a flurry of amazing records that brought Hip Hop into the mainstream and popular music charts. The week’s list includes some of my favorite tunes from that period of time.
