EXPECT TO HEAR...

A journey through the Anthems and Party Classics of Hip Hop music and culture. The journey starts at White Lines, drops in on Halftime and ends all the way up at Summer Sixteen (with an extended stopover at 2001).

VIDEO...

The Pharcyde - Drop
Directed by the infamous Spike Jonze, the whole video is filmed backwards, with a forward moving story. Members of The Pharcyde learnt how the lyrics would look to rap them backwards and it's filmed through the iconic streets of NY.

Remember that Puff Daddy video for "Victory" that cost $2.7 million to make. Remember that? Nah, me neither. I'll forever remember this Pharcyde video though (made on a fraction of Diddy's video).

Creativity and a clever concept will always come out on top - especially in Hip Hop!
