I am a Japanese B-boy. I am a Beat maker and DJ.
When I was a Junior high school student.
There was a record shop in my neighborhood.
I listened to MC HAMMER at that time
Because it appeared on the television often.
The record shop recommended
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth "Mecca and the Soul Brother"
When I heard that for the first time, I thought it was so cool.
It was very different from any Japanese music.
