Without Video Music Box, the creation of Ralph McDaniels, there would be no BluCheezTV. Video Music Box was my after school crack. I’d rush home after school to watch music videos from rappers to punk rockers and everything in between that had soul and funk within its sound.
Video Music Box was transmitting music thru imagery. Basically what YouTube does today, but this was way before the internets and even before my parents had access to cable television. Respect the architect that Ralph McDaniels is for showing the whole of Hip-Hop before MTV, VH-1 or even B.E.T. had the platform.
