Bob James and George Kranz – Hip-Hop Pioneers

Bob James
Back in the mid-90s, when a few of my friends got into hip-hop production, I remember freaking out when I heard them play Bob James for me. I am sure most are aware of Bob James’ place in hip-hop, but if not, just check the tracks below. I know a few of my readers are relative hip-hop youngsters, so maybe, just maybe, I am showing you something for the first time.

Bob James – Nautilus

Bob James – Take Me to the Mardi Gras

After he finished revolutionizing hip-hop before it was even born, Bob later made the theme from Taxi. My dad had this album. Now I have it.

George Kranz
George Kranz was pretty effin’ weird and clearly way ahead of his time.

George Kranz – Din Daa Daa
