Read the rest of the Hip Hop Family Tree comics!
How is Ed getting this info? I feel like I missed some historical theses or something!
You’d probably need about 16-17 years worth of obsessive study of the culture, collecting stories and anecdotes from the various characters involved, then collating your data. That ‘ud do it.
Oh, and to put the info you’d collected into comic form, you’d need to develop your artistic style in conjunction with you uber-geek data collection project.
Here’s that Crash Crew wax!
Thanks Ted. Here’s the Freedom song that is provides the backbone to the Crash Crew song, and many others. The popular breaks are during the first 20 secs, and then skip ahead to 3:19-4:00 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_SkXicZN6Y
SPOILER: The strip is building to a point where, it’s not the Sugarhill Gang who does a riff, but, Sugarhill records acquires Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, who do their own song over the Freedom break. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3E8jqTVLK4Y
and another good use of the Freedom break was this De La Soul/ Native Tongues jam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIs7QLNpa00
probably my favorite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVtVJ6Kq-Pk
another super dope strip, my man. also, I recently got over, too: http://boingboing.net/2012/06/11/mind-blowing-movie-chameleon.html
there’s a link to the Black Star sample in the comments
Good stuff, thanks.
Delete all useless use of the word ‘JUST’ and go with that.
Alternately, a Grey cartoon showing lives of elders would be just as informative. Oops, I used that word. Sry, Canadian here.
