Stussy x Yo! MTV Raps Part 1 – The Importance of Yo! MTV Raps

Stussy sits us down one more again with Def Jam’s Bill Adler and others as he introduces the first half of Stussy’s We Were All Watching documentary on the history and influence of hip-hop. Part 1 shown here and titled “The Importance of Yo! MTV Raps” showcases the pioneering platform responsible for introducing hip-hop into the homes of millions of viewers. With a solid list of guest speakers — Chris Robinson, AlchemistQuestlove, MC Lyte and Rakim to name a few — all pining over the much loved and much missed show, Stussy has helped shed some light on the roots of an era so entrenched in our current culture; a throwback that’s definitely worth the watch.
