Just watching ‘would i lie to you?’ on BBC1 and a hilarious late 80’s BBC Rap documentary clip came into the equation. If ever there was ever a correlation between TV and online habits, this was it. Straight onto YouTube , and here they are. These kids are damn cool and its an amazing insight into the hip-hop/rap subculture in the late 80’s. Once you get over the initial comedy value, its actually a pretty deep documentary on how the music has given them a platform to express themselves.
What do you reckon you would get if you did a documentary on the grime scene now ? I’d watch it. Watch them all, my personal favourite is clip 2 , i’d never mess with that posse !
