Dj Undercover, Mr Pink the jeweler, Vinni Mc, Vinni Versace…..
I was born in Peckham SE15, London.
I was raised on Blue Beat Reggae, Ska and James brown played by my parents.
My friends big brother said there’s a new style of music called ‘Rap’ and said “listen to this”.
He put a tape in his cassette player and played us a rap record by a guy named Spoonie Gee.
This was in the late 70s and it sounded amazing.
After that I heard rappers delight, the Message and was completely hooked by the time Grandmaster Flash and the furious 5 dropped Survival.
