Hip Hop History: 1985 is considered the last great year of Old School Hip Hop before the advent of overblown sampling and "Walk This Way" which took Hip Hop into a new direction both musically and culturally. Toddy Tee releases a seminal West Coast jam that foreshadows "gangsta" rap (along with rapper Schoolly D.'s "PSK-What Does it Mean?"). Freestyle hits it big with Lisa Lisa & The Cult Jam, Nu Shooz ("I Can't Wait"), Connie ("Funky Little Beat") and Trinere ("All Night"). Miami Bass evolves and garners hits with records such as MC A.D.E.'s (Adrian Does Everything) "Bass Rock Express". Clearly, Doug E. Fresh, the king of beatboxing, owns the year 1985 as his records "La Di Da Di" and "The Show" took Hip Hop into a new direction and stand as massive influential classics. #hiphophistory

We woke up #Emmy Winners, but it's not without the pioneers sharing their stories and the passion to document, move and celebrate hip-hop culture that we'd be here. This story isn't over yet - the evolution continues. Thank you @iemmys. •

Today on @trakliferadio 3p PST with @melloewon & @deejaynimfo

#wlrhiphophistory On this day in 2000. Capone N Noreaga got back together to drop their 2nd studio album “The Reunion”. •

What’s you favorite track?

you might call it Gangsta Walking, Buckin, Ticking, Bovan Dance and some even refer to it as “Urban Ballet”. Evolving since the early 80’s, the dance Memphis Jookin has grown tremendously. Starting as a simple 1 2 step in the club, now Jookin would be described with a basic foundational step and rhythmic bounce, combined with sliding, gliding, tippy toe spins and stalls, mixed with lyrical wordplay.
