Rap gave birth to Hip-hop which in turn gave birth to a global phenomenon that pervades throughout all aspects of modern culture. Starting on the streets of New York, the word quickly spread that a new sound had arrived, and the key players from the early days soon became influential names to drop. On this release they are reunited twenty years after they set the tone for all future hip-hop happenings, recorded live at New York City's Webster Hall.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Take a journey of sound and sight to the roots of a movement that changed the music, lifestyle and social structure of a generation! Known as "Rap" and then "Hip Hop," the genre was born on the tough streets of New York's South Bronx where street gangs fighting for their dignity and survival traded their weapons for turntables and their anger for rhymes that transformed youth and its music. The founding fathers of this force reunite twenty years later to remind us that the beats and energy they created are as relevant now as they ever were, and the magic only gets better with age. Taped live at Webster's Hall in New York.
