On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable will discuss the true origins of Hip-Hop culture and rap music.  Is Hip-Hop even a culture in the true sense of the word?  Was it actually “born” in the South Bronx, or did it exist long before that?  Is Kool Herc really the father of the culture?  Did Clarence “Blowfly” Reid truly “invent” rap music?  Is rap music merely a Black American extension of Dub Reggae?  Have the contributions of Brooklyn and Philadelphia been overlooked when recounting Hip-Hop’s history?  How real is east coast bias, and how much of an impact has it had?  Is it still a factor in the current era?  These topics and more will be probed on tonight’s Scottscope podcast!
