Google+ Beathearts: The story of Yo! MTV Raps (Documentary)


The story of Yo! MTV Raps (Documentary)

Tripped over this great documentary telling the story of one of the most (if not the most) influential rap shows ever televised. I don't know about you but to me Yo! MTV Raps (1988-1995) changed my life because it opened my eyes to rap and told the story about the rappers/DJs behind the music in a way that no one had done before. And it was done in an era where black music was almost unheard of on TV.

If you were around this is such a great reminisce. If you were not around this documentary is an amazing history lesson about the emergence of rap music globally. Enjoy!

Big shout outs to the creators (the late) Ted Demme and Peter Dougherty as well as the hosts Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Doctor Dre.
