Damn! After Grandmaster Roc Raida another legend has passed away: Mr Magic!
What a bad year indeed! We want to remember a true pioneer with this old mix posted almost two years ago and with this interview:
Jay: What year was that?
Magic: Hmmmm, ah, ’77?
Jay: Wow, that long ago? And what other hip hop was on the radio at that time?
Magic: Wasn’t no hip hop.
Jay: So yours was the first hip hop show on the radio?
Magic: Even when I first went into radio, it wasn’t really called hip hop, it was called disco.
