will old school rap for food

rap pioneers are ! don't just mention their names in your raps, promote them!
“hip-hop doesn’t promote its history,” mr. mcdaniels (d.m.c. of run-d.m.c) said. “ and will talk about little richard or howlin’ wolf. a lot of rappers now will cite rakim, but they don’t promote him. people in the industry don’t want people to be focused on anything other than what is going on right now.”
