#9 Beats to the Rhyme – Run DMC
As a Hip Hop DJ in my youth I wasn’t much of a Run DMC fan to be honest, until I saw them live at Manchester Apollo in the late 80’s with their support band The Beastie Boys. What a show! The late Jam Master Jay just walked on stage with a few records under his arm and just blew us all away, what a band, they brought Hip Hop to a wider audience and even resurrected the career of Aerosmith! Classic James Brown sampling Hip Hop. Seeing them live made me want to start my Hip Hop group, which I did, except we had Yorkshire accents!
My blurb about #mytop30 …
I now have 15,906 songs in my iTunes collection. In my defence I am an ex-DJ, honest! So on a long train journey i started to add my favourites to a playlist. I was aiming to find my top 5, but ended up with my top 30.
Whats your top 5/10/20/30?
