De La Soul 1Xtra – My First Bars.


As Mc month continues on BBC 1 Xtra, De La Soul talk about their first bars as Mcs.

The My First Bars series has been running on BBC 1 Xtra for a while now. All the heavyweight UK talents from Dizzee Rascall, Devlin, Wretch 32, Stormzy to name a few. Have all sat down and talked about there early rhyming influences and there first bars.

Now without a doubt De La Soul are the biggest, most legendary Mcs to sit down for the My First Bars series. With their new album De La Soul And The Anonymous Nobody dropping soon, its great to heat them go back to the very beginning.

Just over three minutes in length, honest, amusing and heartfelt. The legendary De La Soul takes back to a time of more innocent hiphop. Rapping about girls, being influenced by the pioneers, rapping in the lunch hall at school. This really is a trip down memory lane from one of the most legendary and timeless crews hiphop has ever had.

Everything from Soul, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Pop you name it, it was on the stereo when I was growing up. I got into HipHop in 93/94 and the rest as they say is history! From a long haired skateboard kid growing up in Glastonbury, via Edinburgh for a few years. Now making moves in London for the last ten years and counting. My journey has been fuelled by music. I have been DJ'ing for the best part of ten years, starting of as a DMC battle DJ after smashing my way through the Scottish DMC finals, through to the London DMC finals. I turned my hand to mix cds, then radio, as well as tearing up dance floors from Edinburgh to London town then back again. Sharing the stage with everyone from Trevor Nelson to Cutmaster Swift along the way. I have passed my knowledge and skills on as a DJ tutor and I was the scratch DJ for Sky Sports, for their weekly football show "Premier League Preview". My blog here is to keep you up to date with the latest news from the urban world, reviews, write ups, features. As well as positive, mindful blogs, tell a friend to tell a friend. Beats, Rhymes and Life. Peace, Peace DJ Myme.
