The Real Hip Hop is Over Here

In celebration of the 30 anniversary of Rappers Delight, the Beeb has done a short little piece following a New York paramedic who, as a very young photojournalist was the unofficial documenter of the ‘birth of hip-hop’.

The 14th of October, 1979 was a special day for Sugarhill fans worldwide. But lest we forget a few days later, the non-commercial entity Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five gave us the seminal Superrappin’. Hip Hop subsequently arrived to a mass commercial audience. Did somebody say irony?

You didn’t?…well just carry on jiving then, ya sucka ass turkey!

Ps. How silly of me, did i forget to mention the death of it?
