James White and his extended playlist!

James is so on it!(Insert Beastie Boys reference here) I interviewed James for an up and coming article and this extended playlist arrived! Complete with a lil’ insight on each track, awesome stuff! Here’s what James had to say about the topic. “Okay, i know this is more than five but you gotta know where I’ve been to understand where I’m at!!”..

1)Kraftwerk – one of the first electronic groups and basically invented electro/Hip Hop. I remember trying to copy this dance!! – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-0_gYYb1PE
2)Doug e Fresh and Slick Rick ‘The Show’ – One of the first decent Hip Hop Tunes to make it into the main stream and the first record i learnt all the words too. – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gww98XxU1lc
3)Beastie Boys – I listened the beasties first album so much i wore the vinyl out. I still have two copies! – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7M7d8u40I4
4)LL Cool J- Can’t Live without my Radio – Not a truer word spoken! Would you believe the Beastie actually discovered LL and got him signed to Def Jam!! – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCZHJrooobs
