Rap Attack - Show Intro - 08.11.84 - "8 Million Stories"

Here's some more Rap Attack material. Just a little something... this is the show intro to the August 11th, 1984 edition of the WBLS Rap Attack. As showcased yesterday, Magic and Marley were on fire this particular night, in high spirits, rocking off their chemistry. I swear, this particular show would be a top contender for showcasing what Mr. Magic brought to the table for hip hop. His signature and bass heavy voice narrates the listener through the show as he introduces countless new hip hop records. It all sounds so official. The class of New York city serving as your guide in the era of rap music.

Rap Attack 08.11.1984 Show Intro (WBLS) -

"One for the treble, two for the bass, come on Marley Marl, let's rock three states!"

"We'd also like to let everyone know that we are celebrating Harlem week, and to do that, we begin with something brand new from Harlem's own king of rap. His name is Kurtis Blow."

(Cue 8 Million Stories). I'm glad this tape survived through the years!
