It's hot in here, but even hotter now. Here's Sugarhill Gang

0:00:230:00:26

and one of the fastest climbers of the week - it's the Rapper.

0:00:260:00:29

# I said a hip, hop, the hippie, the hippie to the hip hip-hop, and you don't stop

0:00:290:00:32

# The rock it to the bang-bang

0:00:320:00:33

# The boogie to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat

0:00:330:00:36

# Now, what you hear is not a test I'm rapping to the beat

0:00:360:00:41

# And me, the groove, and my friends are gonna try to move your feet

0:00:410:00:44

# See I am Wonder Mike and I'd like to say "Hello"

0:00:440:00:48

# To the black, to the white, the red and the brown, the purple and yellow

0:00:480:00:52

# But first I gotta bang bang the boogie to the boogie

0:00:520:00:55

# Say "up jump" the boogie to the bang-bang boogie

0:00:550:00:57

# Let's rock, you don't stop

0:00:570:00:59

# Rock the riddle that'll make your body rock

0:00:590:01:01

# Well, so far you've heard my voice, but I brought two friends along

0:01:010:01:06

# And next on the mic is my man Hank Come on, Hank, sing that song

0:01:060:01:09

# Check it out, well, I'm Imp the Dimp, the ladies' pimp

0:01:090:01:12

# The women fight for my delight

0:01:120:01:14

# But I'm the grandmaster with the three MCs

0:01:140:01:17

# Let's shock the house for the young ladies

0:01:170:01:18

# When you come inside and to the front

0:01:180:01:20

# You do the freak, you do the bump

0:01:200:01:23

# When sucka MCs try to prove a point

0:01:230:01:24

# We're treacherous trio with the serious joint

0:01:240:01:27

# From sun to sun and day to day

0:01:270:01:29

# I sit down and write a brand new rhyme

0:01:290:01:31

# Because they say that miracles never cease

0:01:310:01:33

# I've created a devastating masterpiece

0:01:330:01:35

# I'm going to rock the mic till you can't resist

0:01:350:01:37

# Everybody, it goes like this

0:01:370:01:39

# I was coming home late one dark afternoon

0:01:390:01:41

# Reporter stopped me for an interview

0:01:410:01:43

# She said she's heard stories and she's heard fables

0:01:430:01:45

# That I'm vicious on the mic and the turntables

0:01:450:01:48

# This young reporter I did adore

0:01:480:01:50

# So I rocked a vicious rhyme like I never did before

0:01:500:01:51

# I go do it, I go do it, I go do it, do it, do it

0:01:510:01:54

# And I'm here an I'm there I'm Big Bank Hank, I'm everywhere

0:01:540:01:58

# Just throw your hands up in the air

0:01:580:02:00

# And party hardy like you just don't care

0:02:000:02:02

# Let's do it don't stop y'all, a tick a tock y'all, you don't stop

0:02:020:02:07

# Go hotel, motel, what you gonna do today? (say what)

0:02:070:02:10

# I'm gonna get a fly girl, gonna get some spank drive off in a def OJ

0:02:100:02:14

# Everybody go hotel, motel, Holiday Inn

0:02:140:02:18

# You say if your girl starts acting up, then you take her friend

0:02:180:02:23

# I say skip, dive, what can I say?

0:02:230:02:25

# I can't fit 'em all inside my OJ

0:02:250:02:27

# So I just take half and bust them out

0:02:270:02:29

# I give the rest to Master Gee so he could shock the house

0:02:290:02:31

# I said M-A-S-T-ER G with a double E

0:02:310:02:35

# I said I go by the unforgettable name

0:02:350:02:37

# Of the man they call the Master Gee

0:02:370:02:40

# My name is known all over the world

0:02:400:02:42

# By all the foxy ladies and the pretty girls

0:02:420:02:44

# I'm going down in history as the baddest rapper there ever could be

0:02:440:02:48

# I'm feeling the highs and you're feeling the lows

0:02:480:02:50

# The beat starts getting into your toes

0:02:500:02:52

# You start popping your fingers and stomping your feet

0:02:520:02:55

# And moving your body while you're sitting in your seat

0:02:550:02:56

# And then damn, you start doing the freak

0:02:560:02:59

# I said, "Bam!" Right out of your seat

0:02:590:03:01

# Then you throw your hands high in the air

0:03:010:03:03

# Rocking to the groove, shake your derriere

0:03:030:03:05

# You're rocking to the beat without a care

0:03:050:03:07

# With the sure-shot MCs for the affair

0:03:070:03:09

# Now, I'm not as tall as the rest of the gang

0:03:090:03:11

# But I rap to the beat just the same

0:03:110:03:13

# I got a little face and a pair of brown eyes

0:03:130:03:15

# All I'm here to do ladies is hypnotise

0:03:150:03:17

# Singing on and on, on, on and on

0:03:170:03:20

# The beat don't stop until the break of dawn

0:03:200:03:21

# Singing on and on, on, on and on

0:03:210:03:24

# Like a hot de pop de pop de pop diddly

0:03:240:03:26

# Pop de pop, you don't dare stop

0:03:260:03:28

# Come alive, y'all... #

0:06:460:06:47

A generation after the phrase heavy metal was first coined,

0:06:470:06:50

those characteristic lip-biting guitar breaks, a mutation

0:06:500:06:53

of the blues, met the contemporary urban blues of New York rappers.

0:06:530:06:56

The result was the blockbusting LP Walk This Way

0:06:560:06:59

and the two were put together by our live turn tonight, Run DMC.

0:06:590:07:03

# Yo, Jay, wait

0:07:030:07:05

# What the hell am I waiting for?

0:07:140:07:16

# One day when I was chillin' in Kentucky Fried Chicken

0:07:210:07:24

# Just mindin' my business, eatin' food and finger lickin'

0:07:240:07:28

# This dude walked in lookin' strange and kind of funny

0:07:280:07:31

# Went up to the front with a menu and his money

0:07:310:07:35

# He didn't walk straight, kind of side to side

0:07:350:07:39

# He asked this old lady, "Yo, yo, um, is this Kentucky Fried?"

0:07:390:07:42

# The lady said, "Yes, man", smiled and he smiled back

0:07:420:07:46

# He gave a quarter and his order, small fries, Big Mac!

0:07:460:07:50

# Today you won a ticket to see Doctor J

0:08:050:08:08

# Front row seat, no pay

0:08:080:08:13

# Radio in hand, snacks by feet

0:08:130:08:16

# Game's about to start, you kickin' popcorn to the beat

0:08:160:08:19

# You finally wake up

0:08:190:08:22

# Drunk as skunk you illin' punk and in your left hand was Bacardi

0:08:460:08:50

# You went up to this fly girl and said, "Yo, yo, can I get this dance?"

0:08:500:08:53

# She smelt your breath and then

0:08:530:08:55

# She left you standin' in your illin' stance

0:09:080:09:11

# For dinner, you ate it, there is none left

0:09:130:09:16

# It was salty, with butter and it was def

0:09:160:09:20

# You proceeded to eat it cos you was in the mood

0:09:200:09:23

# But homes you did not read it was a can of dog food!

0:09:230:09:27

0:09:500:09:52

# You be illin', illin'... #

0:09:530:09:56

# When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall

0:10:010:10:03

# And in the back of my mind I hear my conscience call

0:10:030:10:06

# Telling me I need a girl who's as sweet as a dove

0:10:060:10:09

# For the first time in my life, I see I need love

0:10:090:10:11

# There I was giggling about the games

0:10:110:10:14

# That I had played with many hearts, and I'm not saying no names

0:10:140:10:17

# Then the thought occurred, tear drops made my eyes burn

0:10:170:10:20

# As I said to myself, "Look what you've done to her"

0:10:200:10:22

# I can feel it inside I can't explain how it feels

0:10:220:10:25

# All I know is that I'll never dish another raw deal

0:10:250:10:28

# Playing make believe pretending that I'm true

0:10:280:10:30

# Holding in my laugh as I say that I love you

0:10:300:10:33

# Saying amor, kissing you on the ear

0:10:330:10:36

# Whispering I love you and I'll always be here

0:10:360:10:39

# Although I often reminisce I can't believe that I found

0:10:390:10:42

# A desire for true love floating around

0:10:420:10:44

# Inside my soul because my soul is cold

0:10:440:10:47

# One half of me deserves to be this way till I'm old

0:10:470:10:50

# But the other half needs affection and joy

0:10:500:10:53

# And the warmth that is created by a girl and a boy

0:10:530:10:55

# I need love... #

0:10:550:10:57

Everybody, put your hands in the air and wave them slow from side to side.

0:10:570:11:01

We gon' get busy like this.

0:11:010:11:03

Say, "I need love" on the count of three.

0:11:030:11:05

One, two, three.

0:11:050:11:06

# I need love... #

0:11:060:11:08

Yeah, keep it like that.

0:11:080:11:10

That's the way I like it.

0:11:100:11:12

Slow and easy as we get busy.

0:11:120:11:15

# Romance, sheer delight, how sweet

0:11:170:11:20

# I gotta find me a girl to make my life complete

0:11:200:11:22

# You can scratch my back, we'll get cosy and huddle

0:11:220:11:25

# I'll lay down my jacket so you can walk over a puddle

0:11:250:11:28

# I'll give you a rose, pull out your chair before we eat

0:11:280:11:30

# Kiss you on the cheek and say, "Ooh girl you're so sweet"

0:11:300:11:33

# It's deja vu whenever I'm with you

0:11:330:11:35

# I could go on forever telling you what I do

0:11:350:11:38

# But where you at? You're neither here nor there

0:11:380:11:41

# I swear I can't find you anywhere

0:11:410:11:44

# Damn sure you ain't in my closet or under my rug

0:11:440:11:47

# This love search is really making me bug

0:11:470:11:49

# And if you know who you are why don't you make yourself seen?

0:11:490:11:52

# Take the chance with my love and you'll find out what I mean

0:11:520:11:55

# Fantasies can run but they can't hide

0:11:550:11:57

# And when I find you I'm gon' pour all my love inside

0:11:570:12:00

# I need love... #

0:12:000:12:02

Everybody, clap your hands real slow and we gon' get busy like that.

0:12:020:12:06

On the count of three, say, "I need love".

0:12:070:12:10

One, two, three.

0:12:100:12:11

# I need love... #

0:12:110:12:12

Yeah, I like that.

0:12:120:12:14

-What y'all think of that, fellas?

-Real good.

0:12:140:12:17

Do you think we can get busy with this? Real busy.

0:12:170:12:20

# See what I mean, I've changed I'm no longer

0:12:220:12:25

# A playboy on the run I need something that's stronger

0:12:250:12:27

# Friendship, trust, honour, respect, admiration

0:12:270:12:30

# This whole experience has been such a revelation

0:12:300:12:33

# It's taught me love and how to be a real man

0:12:330:12:35

# To always be considerate and do all I can

0:12:350:12:38

# Protect you you're my lady and you mean so much

0:12:380:12:41

# My body tingles all over from the slightest touch

0:12:410:12:44

# Of your hand and understand I'll be frozen in time

0:12:440:12:46

# Till we meet face to face and you tell me you're mine

0:12:460:12:49

# If I find you, girl I swear I'll be a good man

0:12:490:12:52

# I'm not gonna leave it in destiny's hands

0:12:520:12:54

# I can't sit and wait for my princess to arrive

0:12:540:12:57

# I gotta struggle and fight to keep my dream alive

0:12:570:13:00

# I'll search the whole world for that special girl

0:13:000:13:02

# When I finally find you watch our love unfurl

0:13:020:13:05

# I need love... #

0:13:050:13:07

Now, everybody, put your hand in the shape of an L and put it in the air,

0:13:070:13:11

like this, for LL. Right now. Keep it like that.

0:13:110:13:13

Say, "I need love" on the count of three. One, two, three.

0:13:130:13:16

# I need love... #

0:13:160:13:18

-Yo, fellas, y'all think we can work that?

-Let's do it.

0:13:180:13:21

Can I whisper something to y'all? Can I whisper something?

0:13:210:13:25

Check it out.

0:13:250:13:27

# Girl, listen to me

0:13:280:13:30

# When I be sittin in my room all alone, staring at the wall

0:13:300:13:35

# Fantasies, they go through my mind

0:13:350:13:38

# And I've come to realise that

0:13:380:13:41

# I need true love

0:13:410:13:43

# And if you wanna give it to me, girl, make yourself seen

0:13:430:13:47

# I'll be waiting

0:13:470:13:48

# I love you... #

0:13:480:13:50

One more time, even though the music is getting slow and low.

0:13:520:13:55

Say, "I need love" as loud as you can. On the count of three. One, two, three.

0:13:550:13:59

# I need love. #

0:13:590:14:02

# This is a journey into sound

0:14:150:14:17

# A journey which, along the way, will bring to you new colour

0:14:190:14:23

# New dimension, new value

0:14:230:14:25

# When all is ready, I throw this switch

0:14:310:14:34

# Pump up the volume

0:14:340:14:35

# Pump up the volume

0:14:350:14:37

# Pump that bass

0:14:380:14:39

# You make me feel so good

0:14:540:14:56

# We interrupt this broadcast to bring you a special news bulletin

0:14:590:15:02

# From our on-the-spot escort

0:15:020:15:04

# Oh, my gosh!

0:15:040:15:06

# The music just turns me on

0:15:060:15:09

# Thinkin' of a master plan

0:15:110:15:13

# Thinkin' of a master plan

0:15:150:15:18

# Thinkin' of a master plan

0:15:200:15:23

# 'Cos ain't nothing but sweat inside my hand

0:15:230:15:25

# So I dig into my pocket, all my money is spent

0:15:250:15:27

# So I dig deeper but still comin' up with lint

0:15:270:15:30

# So I start my mission, leave my residence

0:15:300:15:32

# Thinkin' how could I get some dead presidents

0:15:320:15:35

# I need money, I used to be a stick-up kid

0:15:350:15:37

# So I think of all the devious things I did

0:15:370:15:40

# One, two, three, four!

0:15:400:15:43

# I used to roll up, this is a hold up, ain't nothing' funny

0:15:440:15:47

# Stop smiling, still don't nothing move but the money

0:15:470:15:49

# But now I learned to earn cos I'm righteous

0:15:490:15:52

# I feel great, so maybe I might just

0:15:520:15:55

# Search for a nine to five, if I strive

0:15:550:15:57

# Then maybe I'll stay alive

0:15:570:15:59

# So I walk up the street whistlin' this

0:15:590:16:02

# Feelin' out of place, cos, man, do I miss

0:16:020:16:04

# A pen and a paper, a stereo, a tape of

0:16:040:16:07

# Me and Eric B, and a nice big plate of

0:16:070:16:09

# Fish, which is my favourite dish

0:16:090:16:12

# But without no money it's still a wish

0:16:120:16:14

# Cos I don't like to dream about gettin' paid

0:16:140:16:16

# So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made

0:16:160:16:19

# So now to test to see if I got pull

0:16:190:16:22

# Hit the studio, cos I'm paid in full

0:16:220:16:25

# One, two, three!

0:16:310:16:34

# By George!

0:16:340:16:36

# Pump up the volume

0:16:390:16:40

# Pump up the volume

0:16:400:16:41

# Wait a minute, you better talk to my mother

0:16:410:16:44

# Yo, what happened to peace?

0:17:060:17:08

# Peace, peace, peace. #

0:17:080:17:10

# Mirror, mirror, on the wall

0:17:180:17:20

# Tell me, mirror, what is wrong?

0:17:200:17:22

# Can it be my De La Clothes

0:17:220:17:23

# Or is it just my De La Soul

0:17:230:17:26

# What I do ain't make believe

0:17:260:17:28

# People say I sit and try

0:17:280:17:30

# But when it comes to being De La

0:17:300:17:32

# It's just me, myself and I

0:17:320:17:34

# It's just me, myself and I

0:17:380:17:40

# It's just me, myself and I

0:17:420:17:44

# It's just me, myself and I

0:17:460:17:48

# Now you tease my Plug One style

0:17:510:17:53

# And my Plug One spectacles

0:17:530:17:54

# You say Plug One and Two are hippies

0:17:540:17:56

# No we're not, that's pure Plug Bull

0:17:560:17:59

# Always pushin that we formed an image

0:17:590:18:02

# There's no need to lie

0:18:020:18:03

# When it comes to being Plug One

0:18:030:18:05

# It's just me, myself and I

0:18:050:18:08

# It's just me, myself and I

0:18:110:18:15

# It's just me, myself and I

0:18:160:18:19

# It's just me, myself and I

0:18:200:18:23

# Proud, I'm proud of what I am

0:18:380:18:39

# Poems I speak are Plug Two type

0:18:390:18:41

# Please, oh, please let Plug Two be

0:18:410:18:43

# Himself, not what you read or write

0:18:430:18:46

# Write is wrong when hype is written

0:18:460:18:48

# On the Soul, De La that is

0:18:480:18:50

# Style is surely our own thing

0:18:500:18:52

# Not the false disguise of showbiz

0:18:520:18:54

# De La Soul is from the soul

0:18:540:18:56

# And in fact I can't deny

0:18:560:18:58

# Strictly from the Dan called Stuckie

0:18:580:19:00

# And from me, myself and I

0:19:000:19:03

# It's just me, myself and I

0:19:060:19:10

# It's just me, myself and I

0:19:110:19:13

# It's just me, myself and I

0:19:150:19:17

# Glory Glory Hallelu

0:19:190:19:21

# Glory for Plug One and Two

0:19:210:19:23

# But that glory's been denied

0:19:230:19:25

# By kizids and dookie eyes

0:19:250:19:27

# People think they diss my person

0:19:270:19:29

# By stating I'm darkly packed

0:19:290:19:31

# I know this so I point at Q-Tip

0:19:310:19:34

-# And he states,

-"Black is Black"

0:19:340:19:36

# Mirror mirror on the wall

0:19:360:19:37

# Shovel chestnuts in my path

0:19:370:19:40

# Just keep all nuts twistin' up

0:19:400:19:42

# So I don't get an aftermath

0:19:420:19:44

# But if I do I'll calmly punch them

0:19:440:19:46

# In the 4th day of July

0:19:460:19:48

# Cos they tried to mess with third degree

0:19:480:19:50

# That's me, myself and I

0:19:500:19:53

# It's just me, myself and I

0:19:560:19:59

# It's just me, myself and I

0:20:010:20:03

# It's just me, myself and I... #

0:20:050:20:07

# V-I-L-E and Ice T are on a jack move

0:20:240:20:26

# Layin' down the dope groove, smokin' those who disapprove

0:20:260:20:29

# Wreckin' the deck, you'll regret if you cross punk

0:20:290:20:32

0:51:210:51:24

# Looks like I'm losing mates There's a lot hostility near my gates

0:51:240:51:26

0:51:280:51:30

# Looks like I'm losing sight cos

0:51:300:51:32

# I'm looking at the future it ain't bright

0:51:320:51:34

# I thank God for my friends but they ain't tight

0:51:350:51:38

# Looks like I'm losing hope cos I climb this mountain without rope

0:51:380:51:40

# When we ain't kids no more, will it still be about what it is right now?

0:52:120:52:16

# Like fighting for anything anytime and acting without a care anywhere

0:52:160:52:19

# And when we ain't kids no more, will it still be about

0:52:190:52:21

# What it is right now?

0:52:210:52:22

# Like bank scams, street robbery, shotters, plotters or H.M.P

0:52:220:52:26

# And when we ain't kids no more, will it still be about

0:52:260:52:29

0:52:290:52:30

# Pregnant girls who think they love useless mans with no plans

0:52:300:52:33

# And when we ain't kids no more, will it still be about

0:52:330:52:35

# What it is right now?

0:52:350:52:37

# Cos negative signs just keep showing up

0:53:090:53:11

# So hold back put my feet down and rise

0:53:270:53:29

# Cos guys wanna test my words

0:53:290:53:30

# So I can't just cater for second or third

-You were writing rap from the moment you were a small kid, really, weren't you?

-Like nine years old.

0:56:430:56:48

Around nine I'd seen a guy in the neighbourhood who was just

0:56:480:56:51

outside freestyling about what everyone in the neighbourhood

0:56:510:56:54

had on and he, you know, attracted this big crowd and it was, like,

0:56:540:56:57

just so fun and I was so fascinated by it, and that's pretty much when

0:56:570:57:01

rap was really hitting, you know, and I just started writing from there.

0:57:010:57:05

# If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you, son

0:57:050:57:07

# I've got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one

0:57:070:57:10

# I've got the Rap Patrol on the gat patrol

0:57:100:57:13

# Foes that wanna make sure my casket's closed

0:57:130:57:15

# Rap critics that say he's "Money, Cash, Hoes"

0:57:150:57:17

# I'm from the hood, stupid, what type of facts are those?

0:57:170:57:21

# If you grew up with holes in your zapatos

0:57:210:57:23

# You'd celebrate the minute you was having dough

0:57:230:57:26

# I'm like ... critics, you can kiss my whole asshole

0:57:260:57:28

# If you don't like my lyrics, you can press fast forward

0:57:280:57:31

# Got beef with radio if I don't play they show

0:57:310:57:33

# They don't play my hits Well I don't give a shit, so!

0:57:330:57:36

# Rap mags try and use my black ass

0:57:360:57:39

# So advertisers can give 'em more cash for ads, uh-uh!

0:57:390:57:41

# I don't know what you take me as

0:57:410:57:44

# Or understand the intelligence that Jay-Z has

0:57:440:57:46

# I'm from rags to riches, I ain't dumb

0:57:460:57:49

# I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one - hit me!

0:57:490:57:52

# 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one

0:57:580:58:02

# The year is '94, in my trunk is raw

0:58:020:58:04

# In my rearview mirror is the ... law

0:58:040:58:06

# Got two choices y'all, pull over the car or

0:58:060:58:09

# Bounce on the devil, put the pedal to the floor

0:58:090:58:12

# And I ain't trying to see no highway chase with Jake

0:58:120:58:14

# Plus I got a few dollars... I can fight the case

0:58:140:58:17

# So I pull over to the side of the road

0:58:170:58:19

# "Son, do you know why I'm stopping you for?"

0:58:190:58:22

# "Cos I'm young and I'm black and my shades real low?

0:58:220:58:24

# "Do I look like a mind reader, sir? I don't know

0:58:240:58:27

# "Am I under arrest or should I guess some more?"

0:58:270:58:29

# "Well you was doing 55 in a 54

0:58:290:58:32

# "Licence and registration and step out of the car

0:58:320:58:34

# "Are you carrying a weapon on you? I know a lot of you are"

0:58:340:58:37

# "I ain't stepping out of shit, all my papers legit!"

0:58:370:58:39

# "Do you mind if I look around the car a little bit?"

0:58:390:58:42

# "Well, my glove compartment is locked, so is the trunk in the back

0:58:420:58:44

# "And I know my rights, so you gonna need a warrant for that"

0:58:440:58:47

# "Aren't you sharp as a tack! You some type of

0:58:470:58:50

# "Lawyer or something, somebody important or something?"

0:58:500:58:52

# "I ain't passed the Bar, but I know a little bit

0:58:520:58:54

# "Enough that you won't illegally search my shit"

0:58:540:58:57

# "Well, we'll see how smart you are when the canine come"

0:58:570:59:00

# I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one - hit me!

0:59:000:59:02
