There is no way in the world i would have had that pleasant memory if it wasnt for all the rap videos i saw on Rap City (they weren't that... okay maybe they were as bad as the ones out now in some respects).
I would watch every video i could then listen to the underground hip hop shows to see who was the latest and freshest so i could tell others about them first.
That was a big part of my life and BET just pissed on the show and went on ahead with the agenda.
So many rappers got their brake on that show.
Busta said when he went on rap city for the first time he knew he was legit.
Thats how it was for so many rappers because they didnt have as many shows for rappers back then as they do now.
So between YO MTV Raps and Rap City that was it.
Without Rap City you might have never heard of so many undergrond hip hop artists who later went on to reach high stsus in the rap world.
I didnt even know it was coming on.
Thankfully i caught a rerun of it.
They didnt advertise it well.
I didnt see all of it but i saw a big portion of it and it looked like the hosts (lez, joe and tigger) really was disapointed themselves.
For my real hip hop fans what did you think (if you saw it of course)?
