    Absolutely love this piece. Will it print? If it does, it’s all “Shut up and take my money” for my part.

    I didn’t realize that Jazzy Jeff was that old school. That man can really mix a record. The Magnificent – Jazzy Jeff!

  4. Wysiwyg was awesome, seeing an outsider’s recollection of my own subculture. Loving reading Brain Rot now, remembering my outsider’s viewpoint of when all this was happening and fitting the pieces together.

  5. Hey Ed, it’d be really nice if you could toss in some dates once in a while, just to give an idea of how quickly (or slowly) the genre developed.

    Another excellent installment, Ed.  Funny because I was just listening to “We Rap More Mellow” a day or two ago as I was waiting for your next episode.  Really cannot wait to see this in book form.  I will pre-order at the earlier opportunity.
