Hip Hop Connection #7 (August 1989)
Just over six months since I last posted up any HHC scans so I think it's about that time again.
Issue seven of the self proclaimed 'Bible of Hip-Hop' is pretty solid throughout, including interviews with Silver Bullet, The Beastie Boys, Ice Cube, MC Duke and a nice track-by-track breakdown of 'Ghetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip-Hop' by the Blastmaster himself. I've included Normski's snaps again as there's a few good'uns in there, the Big Daddy Kane shot in particular made me laugh! 'Strictly Business' gives news of Demon Boyz parting ways with Music Of Life as well as a Roland R5 Drum Machine up for grabs in the competition. Page 5 features the lyrics from the LL Cool J Flexidic which came free with this issue but unfortunately I no longer own this and have absolutely no idea what happened to it. If anybody reading this does have a copy and could send over a scan it would be much appreciated.
A few decent adverts appear throughout the pages, my favourite being for Gang Starr's debut LP 'No More Mr Nice Guy' which came (in The UK) with a free 'Movin On' 12" and was priced at an amazing £3.99!!!
As always, you can click the thumbnails for super-size, readable scans...
