If you know hip hop but hadn't heard of Coke La Rock, check out this interview with him. You get a lot of good information and hip hop history.

And actually about 5:30 into the video, Coke La Rock tells the details of the story that is illustrated in the part three link.

This is genuinely great, but I've been wanting to know where Ed Piskor gets his information. Not that I think his information is wrong -- I wouldn't have any idea if it was, nor do I have a dog in any music history fight -- but, because of his age, I know he wasn't present at the events of which he discusses.

Books? People? Journal articles? I didn't scour it but nothing jumped out it me as wrong.

Needs more Jazzy Jay.

Nah, just kidding. Well, I mean, it does, but this is great.
