Solocypher's Hip Hop Countdown 1983-85.....Rockmaster Scott and the Dynamic 3; Nucleus and Frandmaster Flash & Melle Mel

Number 29 - 1983 - Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel - White Lines The pounding beat and production of White Lines puts it streets ahead of its contemporaries; whilst Melle Mel's veiled anti cocaine lyrics are another great example of Hip Hop's early social conciousness. How many different ways can you say snow anyway!? Check the end of the record with some super futuristic cut ups!! Wonder what Mel makes of Rick Ross and all the other cats glamourisng the drug dealing lifestyle nowadays? Number 28 - 1984 - Nucleus - Jam On It - This is one of the craziest early hip hop videos; b boys slammin it off the heezy!! Number 27 - 1985 - Rockmaster Scott and the Dynamic 3 ...Think you havent heard of this record? Check it and think again!!
