24 Years Ago in Hip Hop

I like this

It was 1992, and Hip Hop was my life. At the same time, life was changing. It wasn’t just technology and the advancements in video production, but the feeling of growth and innovation that was in the air. Back then, there were still such things as video stores and record stores, and they were actually two totally different places. Now, you can get more music, video and text through a phone than all those stores combined. Back then things moved slower and gave you time to appreciate the subtleties and nuances of life to a different degree. I remember doing in-store promotions for the local cable TV station with  new artists who were just about to make their mark on the music scene. The show I co-produced from Plainfield, NJ was one of the only weekly shows in the state that showcased underground hip-hop. One of my favorite shoots from that time was the day we recorded Black Moon as they set off on their first promotional tour.
