Although rap music can be heard on radio and television on a daily basis these days, back in the 80s it was almost unheard of. All of that changed when young Ted Demme convinced the executives at MTV to introduce rap music by compiling a pilot of Yo! MTV Raps in the late 80s. The floodgates opened from the get-go, and rap music entered the mainstream television. VH1 has produced this comprehensive documentary, Yo!: The Story of Yo! MTV Raps, which digs deep into the history of the popular music channel, and gives us an insight into their revolutionary story. Get your popcorn ready and press play to watch the video below.
