I always liked Hip Hop, always followed it. But, when I heard "Captain Save A Hoe," I was hooked. I've checked E-40 ever since.

No idea.
I'm 15 now, so I think Dre, Snoop and Em had a big part of it..
Oh wait, the first thing was Bonethugs 'n Harmony's Crossroads.
That was the shit right there, my favourite song when I was like 7.
Also I remember I used to love R&B shit like, uh, Boyz II Men and... All 4 One.
I was like.. Real young then, like 5 or 6. I didn't listen much to music but I loved those 2 R&B groups and Bonethugs 'N Harmony songs.

Are we talking about what got us into Hip Hop, or what was the first artist that we got into?

Shit. Run DMC, BDP, N.W.A., Slick Rick, that got me into Hip Hop. E-40 was the first artist I got into though.

So what? The first rapper that got you into liking rap.

When I was 12 I heard Main Source's "Watch Roger Do His Thang" on the radio, my older sister was playing it. I was trying to dance to it, but back then 12 year olds dance by spinning round 'n round.

So yea......Main Source. But the first westcoast hip-hop for me was easily Ice-T, in high school people bumped N.W.A, The D.O.C and Ice-T the most out of all the rappers, thats why they're my favorite westcoasters.

First rappers I got into were Warren and Coolio, I believe. Maybe Coolio first cause he was the first to get some serious airplay here in Spain. Then I got into Warren G, and I bless the day I got into him cause G Funk is too dope to miss!

The first shit I ever got into was shit like Another Bad Creation, Bel Biv Devoe and shit like this....Until I heard Snoop Doggy Dogg, then I really had love for hiphop, and then I heard "Southernplayalistic" by Outkast and that shit was the bomb too.  Not to mention "The Chronic"

At this time I was about 10 years old in grade 3 or 4 I think.

When I was a kid, I didn't listen to rap, of course, I listened to rock & roll from the 60's (in the 80's, lol) because that's all my dad listened to.  The first time I listened to rap, I think, was probably  the Fat Boys, and the Beastie Boys.  I was in 4th grade, trying to show these kids why the Beach Boys were cool, and they were trying to show me why the Beastie Boys were cool.  I honestly hadn't heard more than 1 or 2 songs that weren't 20 years old when I was 9.  I had Elvis records and shit.  Some people can say I was a nerd, shit, I was more in style than any of those posers were, lol.  Anyways, I listened to the Fat Boys because they were in movies, and I listened to the Beastie Boys, because at the time, this would be probably 86 or 87, it was o.k. for white people to listen to rap, if it was the Beastie Boys.  Basically, I'm telling it like it was, no white person (hardly) at the time would listen to most rap that was out, because a lot of it was still about african american consciousness, or at least just tied more into a black thing.  White people didn't really relate to it, but we listened to the beastie Boys.  When NWA started doing their thing, I heard a lot of that, and then when Vanilla Ice came out, rap really started going pop, as in, it was much much more commercial.  I didn't really hear much new music consistantly until I lived down the street from some kids in a trailor park one time (no shit, I literally lived in a trailor park), and they were all into rap.  I went over to their house all the time (or, uh, their trailor), and we'd sit in the living room, with trash piled up like 3 feet high (these people were pigs),.... one day, I was watching, and Deep Cover came on, that was when I really started liking rap, Deep Cover, Informer (with Snow, lol), Tribe Called Quest, Prince, Tevin Campbell, I used to watch all that shit around that time.  but first rappers that I liked would have to be the Beastie Boys, "Brass Monkey, Funkey Monkey" was the weirdist shit I had ever heard.

When I was in 4th grade, in 1991, I finally got my own head set, and I really got into Lighter Shade of Brown. Two Mexican rappers from Riverside, and I was from Rialto, which is right next door, it was the greatest. I still have that old ass tape. Before I listened to the oldies station that my mom played, and the oldies tapes she had. I feel in love with the lowrider oldies, 'cause I love smooth music. Of course before LSOB, I listen to some hip-hop, but never got into it like I was LSOB. That opened the doors later for N2Deep, SCC, and of course later, Dr. Dre and the Chronic.

Always been into Hip Hop since 6th grade.  It was 1984 when I heard Reckless for the first time by Ice T and Chris The Glove Taylor.  I had the 12 inch.  I was into that NY breakin style, I.E. black pumas (tooth brush in my back pocket for brushing of course) multi colored fat laces, and I cant forget them old school zipper pants, oh yea, and the spiked belt.  (Remember Ice T in Breakin with the spiked gear on?  hehehe... )  I wanted to be him.  I also loved Nucleous who dropped Jam On It.  Shit was hot.  (wicky.. wicky.. wicky.. wicky.. "shut up!")  Yall remember that?

In 87 I got into BDP with Criminal Minded.  Scott La Rock was my hero.  Also in 87 things switched to the Westcoast with Eazy E dropping Radio The EP independently (before Priority)  Mix Master Spade was a local legend then so I was feelin him.  "The Batterram.. you cant stop us baby.."  The good ole days!
