The B.S. story about the Bronx being the birthplace of hip hop is a huge corporate lie that started by a ultra wack newspaper article


Any reference material on this?

I take Hip Hop history very, very seriously. Too many people take Hip Hop for granted and to me I think it's very important that people know that absolute truth about it, where it comes from and how things got started.


I don't know if such a thing as an "absolute truth" exists - - especially in reference to something that isn't documented - - even then, as we see in this discussion, one could still formulate a valid argument against the claim. I too take Hip-Hop history very serioiusly, but I do find other questions to be of greater consequence than establishing what burough it originated or thrived in.

Perhaps you could explain what would be different if texts posited Brooklyn, rather than the Bronx, as the birthplace of Hip-hop.

Peace

scary how this kid for being so young knows 90's throwback rap so well.


This basically substantiates 9th Wonder's theory on the evolution of Hip-Hop with society and time:

http://www.stonesthr...showtopic=23867 I was discussing the topic of hip hop's beginning earlier today on Facebook and someone pointed me in the direction of this documentary I never knew about until today. I was going to post it here but I feel the topic of Hip Hop's true birthplace should be a separate topic. I don't want to distract away from Joey Bada$$ who I think is doing my hometown great justice. I would like to see Joey Bada$$ have the similar of success of Kendrick Lamar so let's continue the conversation there instead.

DOPE as FUCK!

This kid could stop rhyming now, reflect on his short-lived career ten years from now, and still have more to say than a lot of rappers ever will. He just shared a stage with the Roots!

Side Note: That looked like a 12" of his 1999 mixtape...I thought mixtapes were just for promo use. A lot of the production featured on there isn't original. How can he sell a product without licensing from the producers?

I don't think that's an actual vynl for 1999. 1999 was and still is free.

That is a good point.... as far as I know they didn't press it.... I doubt he could get the rights to all of those beats... especially the doom ones.

What I LOVE about this performance is that Joey could have easily had his whole Pro Era crew mob the stage adlibing his rhymes. Instead Joey held it down alone on the mic. Let me say this AGAIN ... This kid is 17 years old, has a crew and didn't have 1 hype man on stage sharing a mic with him during this performance.

In this day and age, that's impressive for someone so young.

Fallon always holds up vinyl-sized covers when artists perform. If an actual vinyl hasn't been released, they just mock-up a fake vinyl sleeve for him to hold up.

So no, 1999 has not been released in any format other than free online mixtape, and it almost certainly will never be released in any physical form.

At first I wondered what they were talking about. There was a time not that long ago when "PE" referred to Public Enemy, now these kids are making it the Progressive Era.

Really diggin' this from 1999:

I did and I was definitely impressed. I had assumed he was part of A$AP Rocky's little clique so that was the main reason I was straying. But I checked out his performance of Waves with The Roots backing him up and I was loving his delivery and his lyrical content.
