Yo! MTV Raps was so important to Hip Hop. I remember trying to get to someones house daily to watch it after school. My parents didn't have cable at the time so I had to use my friends to get my Hip Hop video fix...lol. I would hang out at my man Derrick Cribs house and often at my girlfriend's house in those days to catch up on all the latest Hip Hop videos.
I had to post up this Yo! MTV Raps documentary in celebration of the show's birthday...
Hope you enjoy!
I also remember when it went off air in 1995. The last episode turned into a giant freestlye/cypher with some of Hip Hop's best. A must see:
