For the first part of a two-part series on how Latinos have influenced hip-hop Latino USA producers Daisy Rosario and Marlon Bishop learn about the early years by talking to legends like Devastating Tito, Lee Quiñones, and Charlie Chase. They break down the four elements of hip-hop: MCing, DJing, graffiti, and break dancing and explore how New York City made it all possible.

Good pod cast, when can I listen to part 2?
Gracias saber es poder
Great documentation, thanks. Nice to hear the pieces of that early break-out so well put together. Like a canvas there’s always more detail to see, as in anything that flows with time. Then there was the second break-out, the one that cemented the death of the crack culture, changing the wild cowboy gangster style from street life into entertainment style (or so it seems – and coinciding with the break-out of interest in Hip Hop and wider discussion in the wider culture)… http://synapse9.com/cw/crimewave_nys2.htm

Absolutely loved this story. Great insight on the birth of hip hop through the eyes of Latinos in NYC during the late 70s and early 80s.
less talk and more music
who gives a shit
Part 2 please
I am most pleased that you stated that Latinos “influenced” Hip Hop but not created it. The first issue is the matter of “Latino.” That tells us nothing of the person’s race. Those “latinos” you mentioned could have all been Black, too. The second issue is: DJing, Emceeing, and Graffiti do not make a person part of Hip Hop. Lett me help you out: Hip Hop was never created in the Bronx. Rap, for instance, had already been established in the late 60s by Rudy Ray Moore, who is called the “God Father of Hip Hop.” So when you discuss early 70s, you are still too late to say you were there from day one. You were not. In fact, the term “Rap” is African-American slang used primarily in the 60s to mean “talk.” You clearly did not know that. Black people gave the genre its very name because the genre was created by Black people. Not you. The term Hip Hop comes from another Black American named Cowboy of the Furious Five. And African-Americans are also the first to breakdance. By the time other cultures are doing it, Black Americans have practically abandoned it. There is nothing Latino or Spanish about the creation of Hip Hop, not even the name. You influenced the genre after it had already been established. Please do not attempt to appropriate Black Culture’s music. You are a contributor, not a “co-creator.” Thank you. And I don’t need to see your documentary because I was there. lol
