GrandMixer DXT & Baby T – Hip Hop Pioneers (TheBeeShine Interview)


GrandMixer DXT is arguably the first DJ turntablist. He was mentored by Kool Herc and is featured on Herbie Hancock’s groundbreaking single “Rockit”. He and Baby T, one of the very first female MCees, are two Hip Hop pioneers who have a lot of history to  share, telling stories about the first parties and Hip Hop performances in the 1970′s & 1980′s.

TheBeeShine.com interviewed both of them together, providing a fascinating glimpse into the adventures of another time, when baby Hip Hop was in its infancy stage. In those days, it was not about a check. It was about rocking the party, being creative and having fun. Of course, there was also a lot of violence that cast a dark shadow over the culture.

MCMI Report: What is Fudge Pudge? (Organized Konfusion)

Props to the theBeeShine for featuring this on their site. Fudge Pudge is a classic song by Organized Konfusion, featuring the homie O.C. As Bryan from theBeeShine explains,

… the song does not reference or explain the term “fudge pudge” that is mentioned only twice.

MCMI’s PH asked people at the Organized Konfusion reuninon (BB Kings) what “fudge pudge” really means. Some of the answers are hilarious!

Besides asking the 3 artists on the song, PH also asked Chip Fu, RahzelMr. Mecc and some others what the mysterious song title means. I believe O.C. was actually telling us the real deal. Monch’s answer is a little graphic.
