I think this will be the last hip-hop related post in the series. No promises, but that’s how it feels today.
It seems the 1980s were quite the era for hip-hop from all over. It’s likely because that’s when television got in the mix with cable and MTV.
However, I first saw the video for Slick Rick’s ‘Children’s Story’ on a little back-woods local channel, known for playing all sorts of things. It’s also the first place I saw Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, and Donald Fagen (yes, these are the links to those early videos I remember …).
