Don’t Do It

This record could be dropped at any social occasion and cause dancefloor mayhem. At our staff social last night, upstairs room at a bar in town, the dj played nothing but hip hop, good quality hip hop mainly. I requested Fight The Power and got it. A bunch of teachers dancing to hip hop may be the least funky thing you can imagine but that’s the way it is. White Lines, released in 1984, was a lot of people’s first exposure to hip hop. It’s an impossibly exciting record.
