As much as I think Herbie Hancock‘s music in the 80s turned into real crap compared to his earlier work in the 60s and 70s (culminating in the über-pwning 1973 Headhunters record)… well, regardless of my lessened opinion of his 80s work, his Future Shock record in 1983 had the veritable groundbreaker “Rock It” on it.  “Rock It” alone may have spawned hip-hop for all I know.  I know it spawned a bunch of current musically-inclined DJs (or so the Scratch documentary informed).

Anyway, verbal heavyweight Chali 2Na of the rap group Jurassic 5 has a kicking rap mix of “Rock It” on his MySpace page.  I dig it.

Check it out —> <—

That’s all I know…

I’m still recapping my 2007 CDs for a blog in the near future… it’s going much slower than normal… too much reading in my new “job.”
