FU Urban Studies Grad Sets the Record Straight: Hip-Hop Born in the BoogieDown

The above video was sent to BoogieDowner via Dr. Mark Naison's ("Notorious PhD") Fordham University listserv, and we thought y'all might be interested in checking it out.

According to the Notorious PhD, it is an "amazing video which recaputures the early days of hip hop in the Bronx through the experience of Danny 'Beat Mann' Martinez. The video was done by Fordham Urban studies grad Charlie Johnson (aka DJ Charlie Hustle) who came to the Bronx all the way from Milwaukee."
