And The Winner Is…

I remember a time before YouTube kids. When if I witnessed an historic hip-hop moment on my TV, I grabbed my boombox threw a Maxell in it, pointed it at the screen and pressed record. The year was 1988. The second annual Soul Train Awards and LL Cool J and about 15 of his homies would cop the best Rap Album prize. Peep the ramblings of presenter extraordinaire Paul Rodriquez and how E-Love or Cut Creator bogarted the acceptance speech.
