A while ago my boy Tim reccomended a documentary titled Scratch to me. It’s basically about hiphop DJ’s – from their role in the early emergence of hiphop in the late ’70s to the “turntablists” of today.
I finally got a copy of the DVD from the library and watched it last night. It was really, really fascinating.
Someone posted the whole thing online, which you can see below. If you just want a preview, do yourself a favor and skip to the 39:40 mark and watch ROC RAIDA’s performance. Freaking sick!
