@McGentrix,
I find it really hard to call Eminem an early pioneer, although he was born about a year before DJ Kool Herc started Hip Hop.

Haven't been able to find any of Kool Herc's stuff - weirdly he released his first vinyl in 2019!

Anyway you can listen to the man here:

@hingehead,
1. You definitely know your hip hop history.

2. I have also heard of DJ Kool Herc, DJ Hollywood, Grandmaster Flash, and Afrika Bambaataa.

3. In the early days of hip hop, the DJs were the stars.

4. The MCs/rappers came along afterwards.

5. I already knew about Planet Rock sampling Kraftwerk's (Trans Europe Express)

6. Most people aren't aware of how much influence Kraftwerk had on some of the early electronic hip hop music.

7. Several early hip hop groups were influenced by Kraftwerk's electronic style music.

8. Some of the early hip hop groups that Kraftwerk may have influenced included the Jonzun Crew, Newcleus, Planet Patrol, The Soul Sonic Force and several other groups during the early 1980s.

9. My two favorite Kraftwerk songs were Numbers and Computer World-2.

10. Those two songs were released on Kraftwerk's Computer World album back in 1981.

11. Whenever the song Numbers was played on the radio, the radio station would also play Computer World-2 immediately afterwards as if they were one continuous song.

12. Back then I thought it was one song.

1. I think the reason you haven't heard anything released by Kool Herc is because he was a famous hip hop DJ from the earliest days of hip hop. I don't think he appeared on any record label.

2. I think DJ Red Alert was a famous hip hop DJ in the earliest days of hip hop who also didn't actually appear on any record label.

Is this rap? It's nothing like anything else posted, but it's mostly talking.
