In 1988, a show on MTV began broadcasting and would go on to change the way that that hip-hop was seen across the world. Rap music wasn't as universal as it is today and had a much bigger underground scene with hip-hop culture permeating under the surface of the mainstream in the 80's.
Yo! MTV Raps completely changed this and threw rap music into the mainstream and transmitted the culture to millions of people worldwide. The style, trends and language began to influence popular culture and when the show finished in 1995 rap had become one of the most popular music genres in the world and this trend has continued to this day.
This collaboration between Stussy and MTV celebrates this great TV show celebrating many famous artists including Ice T, De LA Soul, Gang Starr, Slick Rick, Digital Underground, and more.
