hip-hop was being created.

You could just see


and pop-lockin' and rappin',

you know, become the new

sensation in the neighborhood.


And when it comes to hip-hop,

it was New York and Philly

that really connected.

That was the core of it.

[Chuck D] And the record

company, mainly the majors,

they only sold it as vinyl,

'cause they didn't think that

hip-hop and rap music

could sell albums.

And that was

the pioneering era.

[Ice Cube]

You know, hip-hop,

when it came out

in the eighties,

it... it gave us new hope.

You got to remember

that before rap,

you had to be in a band.

You know, you had

to really play instruments.

If you couldn't sing

or you couldn't play

no instrument,

you couldn't be

in the music business.

You know, not as an entertainer.

Hip-hop changed all that.

You know, say, yo,

if you got this other skill...

You know, if you can

make records like this,

you know, you can hit

the same stage

as Prince and Michael Jackson,

and, you know, all the stars

of the day.

[Ice T] And that was the

breakaway thing with hip-hop.

Average kids were able to make

a form of music.

[bell ringing]

[Snoop Dogg] Being in school,

helped me a lot as a rapper,

because battle rap was like,

you know, your 15 minutes

of fame back then

as far as having

a record deal.

Nobody really had deals

back then.

So I entered

into the battle rap world.

[Ice Cube] When you're an

amateur, that's all you got.

'Cause you gonna make your mark

at nutrition

or at lunch

on the same quad.

You know, everybody

gonna get around and rap

and gonna see who the best.

[Daz Dillinger]

It's like a gang fight.

You know, after school

you're ready to rumble.

And sometimes you win,

sometimes you might lose,

sometimes you might
