Growing up when I did, with scribed memories of…
kids bringing vinyl flooring out at recess,
excitement surrounding the school dance, the highly respected DJ and his many crates,
the sounds of Planet Rock, flashing lights and battling b-boys fitted in matching Adidas track suits representin’ their crew.
And just like Sanaa Lathan’s character Sidney Shaw in the movie Brown Sugar,
“I remember the exact day I fell in love with hip hop.”

The Jacket Show, presented by TMC/TDK FAMILY, reminding us what REAL hip hop is all about.

“…to hip hop.  I loved you.  I still do…and I always will.”

  But first, happiest of birthdays to my MaryJane main!
Cheers to being older, wiser and growing up with REAL hip hop!

“Just when you think you know hip hop it surprises you and reminds you why you fell in love with it in the first place.” – Syd Shaw
