Every so often I like to post up some classic old school (pre-1986) joints to help educate the young-in’s on where it all started. This week’s cut comes from Fab 5 Freddy even though he’s not doing any of the rapping.
This single is confusing in itself as the song is sometimes titled “Change Le Beat” but my 12 inch is called “Une Sale Histoire (parts 1 & 2)“. If you listen to the entire song, you will notice the outro which has been cut up by every Hip-Hop DJ in existence – “Ahhh, this stuff is realllly fresh!“.
For those who don’t know, Fab 5 Freddy was an integral part of bringing Hip-Hop to the mainstream with such credits as the movie Wildstyle, Blondie’s “Rapture“, and being the original host of Yo! MTV Raps.
