  1. Just wanted to say thanks 4 the info after reading your blog i managed to catch the MTV Raps Show was a great flashback in time. Old skool will always be the best type of hip hop as todays hip hop sounds don’t really carry the same long gevety. Music is all about one hit wonders nowdays no real material will u we be listening to todays rap in 10 – 20 years from now the answer is no but wil we be listening to old skool 10 – 20 years from now i can say yep we will still be putting on the old cds and giving them a play.

  2. Glad you were able to catch it. I did as well. I hope that more episodes like it are on the way. It was definitely my favorite time for hip hop.
