My Interview With DJ Ralph McDaniels (Part 2)
After the jump is part 1
These are the type of interviews I really enjoy. I am a sucker for Hip Hop stories (old or new).
It’s really an honour to have interviewed Ralph McDaniels, the architect of video-making in Rap music. If it wasn’t for him and the impact he had in the genre, it’s safe to assume that I wouldn’t be doing video interviews.
He inspired a generation of artists and filmakers. His one time assistant was Hype Williams and Hype has done million dollar videos. This is all in addition to being a fantastic DJ.
Respect to DJ Ralph McDaniels!
