Kurtis Blow: History Of Rap

Kurtis Blow: History Of Rap

Volume 1 of hip hop pioneer Kurtis Blow's series of compilation albums detailing the history of rap. Interestingly, Blow chose to not include any rap tracks on the first volume of the series, instead choosing to highlight musicians like James Brown and The Isley Bros., that inspired the very first hip hop artists, paving the way for the genesis of a new genre. A must have for anyone interested in hip hop history and the evolution of the art form.
