The Source: November 1993 issue featuring Kool DJ Herc, Afrika Bambaataa and Grandmaster Flash

In my opinion, the 50th issue is probably one of the top 10 issues The Source has ever published. Simply put, this is the history of the music we love. Just think, back in ’93, many of us didn’t know jack about the real origins and history of the music. Back then, I was a Tribe, KRS-One, and D.I.T.C. junkie and the only hip-hop history prior to ’85 that I truly cared about was related to Run-DMC and Sugarhill Records. But after buying this issue my eyes were opened wide. It really humbled me. But do the younger fans today want to research beyond ‘90’s hip-hop? Would they be interested to learn about the 70’s and 80’s scene? Also, do you think that the founding fathers of the music deserve some kind of monetary contribution or fund set up by labels and/or artists?
