[ARSCLIST] the origin of scratchin'
In my never-ending quest for the most trivial music knowledge on the planet, I have this question
Who was the first rap/hip-hop artist to use a turntable, record and cartridge as a rhythm
instrument, ie "scratchin'"? My guess would be Grand Master Flash's DJ or Run-DMC's DJ, but I admit
not knowing the full genesis of rap.
Thanks in advance if you know the answer!
