DDB Paris presents: The History of Hip-hop in four minutes

DDB Paris presents: The History of Hip-hop in four minutes thumbnail

For those that don’t know me, if there’s one thing that outshines my love of 007, it’s my love of hip-hop music. It takes up a good 80% of my iPod, and and back in the day I used to rhyme on the Toronto underground circuit (big up Planet Mars!) I’m a cranky old man nowadays, hating on most of these new cats, but hey, I’m the only guy in the senior citizens home with a Public Enemy tattoo.

DDB Paris has released a video to promote Trace Urban, a French urban music station. The four minute-plus spot features renowned beatboxer Eklips firing off a continuous stream of hip hop beats, pretty much in chronological order.
