So, a few years into documenting hip hop’s early years here on the Classic Material blog, it came to my attention that New York’s Rub DJs have just uploaded their Hip Hop History series onto Brooklyn Radio’s Mixcloud page so we thought we would do a little catch up and bring ourselves up to date with the first four editions. Links for each appear below and further editions in the chronology will appear as we progress through the years (although if you want to go off and do a bit of exploring yourself the later editions are not hard to find).

The Rub History of Hip Hop - 1980
The Rub History of Hip Hop - 1981
