- Vol. I. of Hip Hop Old School kicks off with a NEVER-SEEN-BEFORE video
taped performance by Old School MC Easy Gee on the mic and DJ High Priest
the Club A7 on the L.E.S. This video features East Coast styled Old School
rapping and DJ mixing that started the whole worldwide Hip Hop explosion.
The footage is mad real, and to see it will hip you to what it was like
hanging out in the days. Funky dope fresh!
2. TV MAGAZINE SHOW On Hip Hop Culture(1983) - This is a very well produced
TV Magazine Show that explains the meaning and the purpose of Hip Hop
culture through interviews by Hip Hop luminaries like Phase II., myself,
the NY.C.B.s and Aresol Artist Brim. Everything about Hip Hop is explored
including; Hip Hop fashion, the Breaking(provided by N.Y.C.B.s!), Graffiti
Art, the language, etc. Very well done piece.
3. On Beat TV - Exerpt From Hip Hop TV Show Featuring DJ Jazzy Jay (1982) -
this is an exerpt from a New York cable show I produced called - On Beat
that features DJ Jazzy Jay of the Zulu Nation. We see him at the
Underground, one of NYC's hottest Hip Hop clubs at the time, exhibiting his
talents as a special mix DJ. This piece also features Hip Hop dancing and
Graf Artists taging up on the walls of the club!
4. K-ROB & DJ HIGH PRIEST Throw-Down (1982) - Two well known Hip Hop Artists
of the Old School crew rock a B-beat Mix; K-Rob on the microphone, High
Priest on the wheels of steel y'all!
5. TV NEW YORK! (Hip Hop TV Show) (1982) - A NEVER-SEEN-BEFORE Hip Hop TV
show I aired on NY cable TV, long before anyone was even video taping, or
filming Hip Hop events. I like to describe it as the Hip Hop version of
Soul Train but hipper, with real kids from the streets doing the funkest Hip Hop
dances, real graffiti being made on the spot by Aresol Artists like Futura,
A1 and more with appearances by Old School DJs like Grand Mixer D.S.T.! I
think it's BETTER than anything you'd see on regular TV!
6. Bronx River Hip Hop Throw-Down(1983) - Awesome, historical piece with
glimpses of DJ Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Jazzy Jay, DJ Red Alert, The Cold
CrushBrothers, Bronx Breakers, Major Graffiti Burners and Hip Hop Kids from the
neighborhood doing funky fresh Old School Hip Hop dances and wearing the
funky fresh Old School Hip Hop fashions. This short has mad flavor!
7. Fab 5 Freddy On The Mic, With Electric Boogie Dancers(1982) - This is
THE Fab 5 Freddy years before he became famous and began hosting Yo! MTV
Raps! He is smooth and funky, no wonder he blew up!
8. FUTURA DELUXE Meets The N.Y.C.B.s(1982) - This is a NEVER-SEEN-BEFORE
special documentary on the infamous Graf/Aresol Artist Futura as he busts
out a whole wall piece for one of my TV NEW YORK Shows, with great
shots/footage of the N.Y.C.B.s mixed in. A double-trouble treat!
8. SQUAT THEATHER Throw-Down(1983) - This is NEVER-SEEN-BEFORE footage of a

DJs, Poppers, Lockers and Aresol Artists.- GRAFFITI ARTISTS
9. Hip Hop Old School Vol. I. ends with a 1 minute long interview from my
syndicated show Graffiti Rock where I ask a B-Boy and B-Girl to explain
their Hip hop fashion. It ends with the B-Boy saying,I sport it fresh
Holmes! and I say, Worrrrd!
