A BLACKHISTORYMONTH SPOTLIGHT: HIP HOUSE

HIP HOUSE is a genre combining HIP HOP with HOUSE MUSIC that was created in Chicago by FAST EDDIE from the HIP HOP group COLD CRUSHIN' CREW back in 1987. When that group broke up, FAST EDDIE launched his new creation on to the highly competitive CHICAGOLAND HOUSE MUSIC industry with historical success! Between 1988 and 1990 hundreds of artists in Chicago began to record their own HIP HOUSE songs. We conclude our BLACKHISTORYMONTH spotlight on RAP with recordings of some of those pioneers, including FAST EDDIE obviously. We also have included the highly popular "I'll House You" by New York's JUNGLE BROTHERS and the controversial "Rok Da House" by England's BEATMASTERS featuring THE COOKIE CREW. That British record has been often identified as "the first HIP HOUSE record" implying that HIP HOUSE was created in London. That is not true. HIP HOUSE was created by FAST EDDIE. We were there. We hung out in his house. We recommend checking out the documentary about HIP HOUSE on youtube: Chicago Hip House Documentary 1989 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2zNvBNTnHg

This is great. I used to live in Gary, Indiana during the late 80s and I enjoyed tunin into Chicago radio in the night. Having heard about this show on Deepblue I had to check out your playlist. I can't wait! Songs like 'rock this place' by Mr. Lee are timeless gems and I'm gonna tape your show! I am very much looking towards hearing it. Cheers.

If you can't do the show for a month maybe you should finally retire and let somebody younger do it.
