  4. Man i like old school hip hop
    since i was 13 when i played gta san andreas that kinda introduced me to west coast hip hop
    when i got interested in old school hip hop i wondered what was LA like back in the early 80's
    i have to say that dj flash and every OG in the game are great
    simply great
    much love from Croatia

  5. I worked in that very building in 1983-84 doing graphics for Wolfman Jack!His son Todd hired me, and I remember the original Rock n Roll hall of fame being there.
    They had a lot of old films of R&R legends.
    West coast y'all!

  8. Thank you ever so much for this tour. We and the rest the world need to know the real truth about rappers these days. So many of the rappers claim to have their own style, which is good, but they need to know what real rapp is all about. Thanks for the history.
