Yo! The Story Of Yo! MTV Raps

Back in June, Vh1 released a documentary on the TV series Yo! MTV Raps, which aired on MTV from 1988-1995. I’m sure most of you are familiar with it, but for those of you who may have been too young at the time or couldn’t catch the show overseas, Yo! MTV Raps was the first television show completely dedicated to hip hop. It featured live performances and guest appearances by everyone from Eric B & Rakim, Run DMC, NWA, and A Tribe Called Quest,  to Tupac, Mike Tyson, and even Bill Cosby. It was a true representation of hip hop in the late 80’s to mid 90’s done right. Check out this behind the scenes doc explaining how the show came about and the challenges it faced being a hip hip program on mainstream television, as well some of it’s most memorable moments. Enjoy..
