The Chameleon

Wednesday's old school hip hop video is Herbie Hancock's "Rock It" from 1983. This was the coolest video in the early days of MTV.

Though it features no rappin', it is a great instrumental with cool robots, Herbie wearing giant gazelle glasses, cool scratch' (DJ Grandmaster D.St.) and an awesome 80's groove. I used to play this really loud when Nate and I DJ'ed Funk Nite a few years back.

I remember being kinda creeped out as a kid by the weird-ass robots, especially the one that appears to be masturbating. Freakin' me out as a youngster!
