Info


Kurtis Blow is the self-titled debut album by American rapper Kurtis Blow. It was released on September 29, 1980, by Mercury Records. The record includes the song The Breaks, which was often sampled later in hip-hop records, mainly for its introduction made by Blow's a cappella vocal, and for the drum break, giving a wordplay dimension to the title. Rappin' Blow, Pt. 2 was issued as a single that had a do-it-yourself B-side, the instrumental version. Takin' Care of Business is one of the first. The Best Of Kurtis Blow - Kurtis Blow. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей. Thus, Kurtis Blow has serious historic value, although it is mildly uneven. Some of the tracks are superb, including The Breaks a Top Five R&B smash in 1980 and Rappin' Blow, Part Two, which is the second half of Blow's 1979 debut single, Christmas Rappin'. And Hard Times is a forceful gem that finds Blow addressing social issues two years before Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five popularized sociopolitical rapping with 1982's sobering The Message. But despite its flaws and shortcomings, Kurtis Blow is an important album that hip-hop historians should make a point of hearing. Track Listing. Songs in album Kurtis Blow - Kurtis Blow 1980.
