This is some old school hip hop we’re talking about here. Well, from a white kid in the suburbs point of view. Which is where we are, so…

This is Ryan Sholin‘s first appearance on Rockin’ the Suburbs. Hopefully the first of many many.

In a certain way, The Sugarhill Gang version heard here is actually a cover The Incredible Bongo Band’s version, right?

Paul’s Boutique? 10/10.

We’ll just leave this right here:
