Hip-hop irrevocably changed the face of the music world when it emerged on the streets of New York City in the late 1970s. The early days of the genre were spontaneous and inspired, with block parties and house parties suddenly turning into fierce MC competitions, alongside incredible displays of scratching from emergent DJ's. Here some of the forefathers of hip-hop come together and reminisce on those early days, providing some poignant recollections, and offering a timely reminder that the music still sounds as fresh as ever. Artists interviewed include Afrika Bambaataa, Kurtis Blow, Cash Crew, and others.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Take a journey of sound and sight, back in time to the roots of a movement that changed the music, lifestyle and social structure of a generation. The genre that was once "Rap" and then "Hip-Hop" had its birth on the tough streets of New York's South Bronx, where street gangs that fought for their dignity and survival traded their weapons for turntables and their anger for the rhymes that transformed youth and its music, showing us what it meant to grow up in a world only they knew. The founding fathers of this force reunited twenty years later to remind us that the works, the beats and the energy they created are as relevant now as ever... and the magic only gets better with age. Includes Bonus Audio CD! Songs Include: If I Ruled the World (Kurtis Blow), Crash Is Back / We are Known as Emcees / On the Radio / High Powered Rap (Crash Crew), In Da Club / Play That Beat Mr. DJ / Who's in the House / What More You Want / Looking for the Perfect Beat / Renegades of Funk / Planet Rock / Step Up in the Room (Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force).
