Recently, I watched the bboy / hip hop history document “The Freshest Kids” from the beginning to the end for the second time. It was as impressive as it was at the first time. The 95 minutes long document includes perspectives from e.g. Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa and Rock Steady Crew members. Here’s the whole document:

Hi-Tek & Co. Express Feelings

March 7th, 2009

“Music is… my total existence, straight up. Everything in my life evolves around music.” -J Dilla

Dilla (R.I.P.) certainly was dedicated; he was touring Europe only a few months before passing away.

“Crates of records, great sessions had the whole hood jammin,
large speakers, fresh made, smell the wood sandin” -Nas

Nas reminisces over the times of Kool Herc & his block parties with custom made speakers. It’s said that Herc’s first sound system consisted of 2 turntables and a guitar amp.
