Hip Hop crossed over into the electro-techno world when Afrika Bambataa introduced "PLANET ROCK"... Grandmaster Melle Mel releases one of the most significant records in Hip Hop history... the West Coast explodes onto the scene with Toddy Tee... and these are just a few of the moments that went on to define Hip Hop in the early 80s. Journey back with us to the time when Reaganomics was in full effect, MTV gave birth to a generation and Hip Hop made its definitive stamp in the annals of American pop culture through the artistry of Newcleus, Mantronix and Run DMC. Part II of the Juggernaut Radio Hip Hop Anthology begins now!
Welcome to Part III of Juggernaut Radio's exclusive coverage of our Hip Hop Anthology, where we actually chronicle the time line through the music we love called Hip Hop. As the 80s progressed, we saw various changes in Hip Hop as music companies started to see the validity of the profitability that this music generated. It was a time when females came to the forefront, gangster rap was born and love ballads became big sellers! Continue the journey with us as we pick up right from where we left off from the last show with artists like Run DMC, Salt N Pepa, Schooly D, Beastie Boys and Joe Ski Love. Hip Hop was here to stay, and it was only getting better...
