Fresh 3 M.C's-Fresh (1983)

I know Hip Hop. I grew up on Hip Hop before it was commercial and mainstream.
This is one of the most important records in Hip Hop but mostly forgotten and unknown by the younger generations. This was the first rap song to popularise a saying amongst Black youth in New York in the 1980s.
"Fresh" was the term used to conote absolute positivitiy.
Rather than saying "That's dope!" one would say, "That's fresh!" The opposite of something being "fresh" was "wack". Enjoy this old skool hip-hop secret gem.
