The Boom Bap w/Skeme RichardsHip-Hop
There’s really no greater endorsement of a DJ’s skill than an official connection with the world-renowned, pioneering breakdancers The Rock Steady Crew. Rock Steady is the essence and soul of hip-hop — shit, if we counted all the times we’ve watched Rock Steady’s appearances in Wild Style, Style Wars and Beat Street, we could probably earn ourselves a degree in top-rockin’ — and Skeme Richards is their go-to platter pusher, so you know he’s legit. But you don’t need a Ph.D. in poppin’ and lockin’ to get down when Richards is behind the decks — he’s a legendary record collector with ample amounts of crazy, obscure party tracks to make you flip your wigs. His blog, Hot Peas & Butta, is one of the Internet’s top spots for finding lost and funky analog treasures, but his are just as dope.
