This session of B.S.L.N.F.F. goes out to the pioneers that had a mind to fuse Hip-Hop with punk rock to create a unified voice of the people. Speaking on themes of police brutality and government coruption, punk rock was just as real as rap music was. This union was sabotaged when the record industry decided that rap could only be made by Blacks and punk rock could only be done by white. Blondie’s ‘Rapture’ became a new wave novelty and the band Bad Brains… well, how many of you have heard of Bad Brains?
I liked The Clash because they were a groove driven punk band and because they always gave mad props to graff kids and Hip-Hop.
