Classic: Golden Era Eighties Legends
This dusted-off feed of videos comes in parts of a European docu-film from the Golden Era Eighties. Incredibly rare footage of these iconic leaders legends of the hip-hop culture, Furious' Grandmaster Flash, teenage LL and Kings Of Rock, Run DMC. True school throwbacks of a burgeoning culture of hip-hop in the nineteen eighties.
Part one is with the legendary DJ, Grandmaster Flash live from day one! Taken in the early eighties, Flash drops science.
Part two takes us to LL Cool J right on the front porch of his grandmother's Queens home. (circa 1984-'85) We get his thoughts on females in the rap game and the many variations of what "LL" stands for, freestyling down Farmer's Boulevard.
Part three shows super-group Run DMC inside and outside New York City. From DMC showing off his new Cadillac to Run and Jam Master Jay in the studio producing a phat reggae beat.
Peep "Son Of Kurtis Blow" (Run) bickering over hotel expenses with the "Jew Upstairs" (Lyor Cohen).
