Hip House

Excellent documentry on Hip House from Chi-Town, check the Dookie gold chain and the Travel Fox kicks!

I never got into Hip House, shit was weak. But i did read an interesting article on it once, saying how in the late 80's HipHop was being banded from clubs in Chicago due to violence, and Hip House nights took off from the back of that and BBoys went there to dance instead.

Here is (as far as I know) one of the first, i not the first Hip House tracks released:

Mr. Freeze (ft. Daddy O & Delite from STETSASONIC) - Back to the Scene of the Crime (POW WOW 1986) Produced by Arthur Baker
