It’s the Box That Rocks! Ralph McDaniels, founder of the seminal Video Music Box talks thirty years of history. Highlights include how Big Daddy Kane shot someone causing him to miss “The Symphony” video shoot, how we wasn’t fucking with Mr. Magic at first, gunplay at NaS’s “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” video shoot, running with a young and grimy Russell Simmons, allowing a young Jay-Z to play hype man for the Notorious B.I.G. and how really good he is in these streets. This is #RapHistoryMonth b. #Newmanati.
Show Bill by Theotis Jones
Raekwon stopped by to drop some Lost Jewels on the crew as we tried to cram 20 years of rich history into one show. We talked about his love for house music, what makes him and Ghost stand out from the rest of the clan, living under the Rza dictatorship, how he made the Ralph Lauren Snow Beach ‘Lo piece a classic and what his name is via the Wu-Tang Name Generator. The Chef also drops a few bars on beats supplied by Just Blaze. Verbal intercourse indeed.
