Bad Meaning Good

This documentary originally aired on the BBC way back in 1987. It offers a great insight into hip hop culture as it emerged over here and makes you realise not only how long the homegrown scene has been kicking about, but also how it’s now firmly found its own voice. There used to be a rap-in-a-British-versus-rap-in-an-American-accent debate, which just doesn’t exist anymore.

Definitely give this a watch. It’s all about Bionic and Sipho of London Posse in the back of Westwood’s clapped out Ford estate spitting to the camera. Also, hearing the Big Dog shit-talking with 80s slang is a proper treat. Bad (meaning good).
