VJ Ralph McDaniels

Before Ed Lover and Doctor Dre introduced hip hop to the world on MTV, Ralph McDaniels was holding down New York City to the fullest. I would get out of school at 2:30 and rush home to catch Video Music Box at 3:30 every day. To this day I still have a lot of his VJ shows on VHS. I lot of my exposure to hip hop as a youth came from this man. These video clips should give you an idea of how influential Video Music Box was to NYC and the development of hip hop worldwide. Peace to Evil Esh from the Bronx - hope this brings back memories.
