synopsis

In this original episode from 1988, Night Flight features the beat-box, syncopated rhythm of Rap. “Born in the inner-city, now commercially accepted the world over rap made its social statement with a look, as well as a sound," Pat Prescott explains. Dig in with a classic tune from Jamaican born Shinehead, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five’s “The Message,” Run DMC’s heavy guitar hybrid track “Rock Box,” Night Flight favorites The Fat Boys and more.
