I Used to Love H.E.R.: King Krash

The 15th installment of I Used to Love H.E.R., a series in which artists/bloggers/writers discuss their most essential or favorite hip-hop albums (read intro), comes from King Krash, a record producer/remixer/beat creator who was kind enough to e-mail me to thank me for a previous post. Krash raps succinctly about one of his favorite hip-hop tracks.

“Roxanne, Roxanne”

(off 1985 self-titled album on Select Records)

“I think my older brother bought the single when I was 5 or 6 and I quickly made it mine. At that age I would just put on a song 100 times in a row. I had one of those kids suitcase style record players, the needle did wonders for the records, and at that age you’re up at like 6am everyday. So 6am till breakfast and again till lunch. Killin’ my 6 year old dance moves and memorizing all the words. I think they were the first to use the “Big Beat” break plus those cuts are branded in my brain. Anyway to this day both my brothers know the whole song by heart I played it so much and they laugh now but they hated it when it was happening. I still have the 12″. If you can put up a pic of the cover peep the outfits. Swords!? I fucking love it.”
