i love new york

I came across this awesome clip of a BBC documentary where Chuck D discusses the music scene in New York in the 70s (upon some research, I think it came from Once Upon a Time in New York).
This area that they are discussing is my favorite sector of hip hop – when it was first emerging and fusing itself with the musical styles of the day – disco, funk, rock, and freestyling. A lot of amazing samples and video footage of New York City back in the day. Check it out below. Hopefully they will be releasing more clips of this doc soon!
