DON’T SLEEP: RIK x The DC Hip Hop History Project “Episode 1: The Unspoken Heard” [INTERVIEW]

The homie J.Benok alongside DMV emcees/producers yU & Kokayi begin to reveal the rich history of the beginnings of the DC Hip Hop scene during the 90’s/Backpack Era. This episode unveils the beginnings of Asheru & Blue Black as well as the origins of 7 Heads Entertainment. I’m glad this is happening, I remember when J.Benok was telling me about his thesis and he sent me a copy about a month after FWMJ brought me out to DC. I was living in Baltimore in 1996 and I remember when all this popped off when I was back in Boston. This needed to happen. Don’t sleep…

One.
