Safe for crackers!

Yesterday I received a last-minute request to write an entry for jefitoblog's ongoing "Safe For Crackers" series, which honors the 21st anniversary of rap crossing over to the pop mainstream. Back in '86, Run DMC and the Beastie Boys, among others, finally ushered in the hip hop era for the white suburban masses, and as I was one of those people, I was more than happy to share some stories associated with that time.

My "Harmolodic Edition" of "Safe For Crackers" runs today, so check it out at your leisure. And, as a bonus, see if you remember this great video from the early days of Yo! MTV Raps - MC Lyte's "Lyte As A Rock."
