4 hour audio documentary (real audio stream via) from WFMU on hip-hop originator Grandmaster Flash. Every single rap star pretty much owes their millions to this guy and a handful of others. Not only that, but without hiphop, and essentially breakbeats, there would be no dance music, no second summer of love, no superstar DJs... fuck, the only thing saving the ninties would of been brit-pop and grunge - and alot of both are dubious. Check this shit out, get yourself a history lesson, listen to some phat beats, and learn that HipHop and rap doesn't start and end with Dr Dre.
