iight...here's my story..

I'm 18,my moms 36...so like we both did kinda like alot of growing up together....

I dont actully remember the first rap song I eva heard...or by who...But I remember being in like 1st or 2nd grade,hearing Brenda's Gotta Baby (by Tupac)....Jump,Jump..(by Kriss Kross)..Cant Touch This/To Legit To Quit (by MC Hammer)...Ice Ice Baby (by Vanilla Ice)..Everyday People (Arrested Development) .....Geordy Porgy ( by MC Lyte)....Deeper (by Bo$$)...You Can Get Wit This,or You Can Get Wit Dat (Black Sheep)...U.N.I.T.Y. (by Queen Latifah)......all that shyt...Then is like 3rd or 4th grade...So Funkdafied (by Da Brat)....First Of The Month/For The Love Of Money (by BONE)...jus all dat..

Even though I listened to all that stuff before...I really started liking rap when Tupac's- Me Against The World CD came out...that's when I was in like 4th grade....Moms played it all the time...And even though I was so young,at the time...I could understand alot of what he was saying on that CD....It was kinda different from the other stuff before...cuz he spoke about the truth...all the stuff I listened to b4 was like for radio hits...

Then my second favorite rap CD came out when I was in 6th grade (The 7 Day Theory,by Pac)...I remember the first day it came out, my moms pulled up (to get me after school)..and errbody was like,is dat yo mom....and we both smiling like yea...

So my moms got me into rap/hip hop....

I used to see the videos on tv, then I'd hear the songs on the radio, so I liked it.  Salt-N-Pepa, and Dre got me really into it.

Well when I was in about grade 2 I was listenging to little kid rap like Another Bad Creation and Kris Kross and shit, some Bel Biv Devoe and what not, then around when I was in grade 3 or 4 my cousin had some tapes like Doggystyle, and some Public Enemy shit so I really started to like rap music since that point.  But even as a young kid, I always like Snoop, I used to listen to the skits off doggystyle and just laugh my ass off!  I thought that shit was hilarious as a youngster. ;D

  • You ready? Here come the pain!
Damn, let's see.
I remember the first song I heard was "Go See the Doctor" by Kool Moe Dee. I was driving and thought: "What the fuck is this?" But I immediately liked it. Shortly after, I heard "Paid in Full" by Eric B & Rakim.
The moment I was really hooked when I got a tape from a friend. One side had Public Enemy on it, It Takes a Nation..., and the other side had Boogie Down Productions on it, Criminal Minded.
"Fresh for '87. You Suckassss" Ha, ha  ;D.
That's how the shit started.
The only way you can fuck with me, is in a orgy.

i remember everything about my very first hip hop experience.

i was in 3rd Grade.. which makes it .. shit .. 1989.. my brother bought a tape home from school.. (he's 5 years older than me).. we shared a bedroom back then.. anyway.. he comes home from school all excited... shuts the door.. and i'm asking him "..what are you doing?.."

he just goes "..shhh... listen to this.."

presses play.. and i was introduced to The Iceberg..

"...think we got knives and guns ? we got bombscares..."

that's the first line of hip hop i ever heard..

after we listened to that whole tape, he put on Straight outta compton.. i'd never heard anything like it..

and being in australia.. and 8 years old.. nobody around me (except my brother and a few of his mates) knew anything about rap.. it was NOTHING like it is now..

i remember when the Chronic came out... and we had to go to a cd import shop and wait for like 2 weeks before that shit arrived..

but i've been a fan for as long as i can remember.. copped Doggystyle the day it dropped... all the NWA and Ice Cube albums as they dropped..

my biggest regret is not being old enough to go to the Ice Cube / Cypress Hill concert they had here in perth AGES ago..

my brother cliams that to be the best concert he's been at..

Public enemy also came while i was under age..

and when Snoop did a perth show.. i was fuckin' 17 .. and the bouncer wouldn't let me in.. motherfucker..


if i was born 2 months earlier, i would've got in..

*..sigh..*

ah well.. i can always dream that there'll be another big hip hop act visiting perth sometime soon...

Peace.

Well I started to listen to rap music at the end of 1993, when I was checkin out tha Whats My Name video from Snoop Doggy Dogg on the MTV European Top 20 Countdown. Since I have seen this, I'm listenin to rap music till now. Bought the doggystyle album on tape early in 1994 and then I bought Dr. Dre The Chronic later that year on CD, my first Rap CD, shit.  ;D
