Capri is a legend, and barreling through these 45’s at lightning speed, he kept the spirit and true meaning of “Doin’ it in the Park”.
Just how exactly did I miss this? Yesterday I gave a shout out to the dude Ted Smooth with his “Otis at the Party” remix featuring Kid Capri. Today, I need to shout out the BX legend Capri, who in this 9 part YouTube series straight up killed it. Yeah, everyone has 45’s these days, but they don’t have these 45’s. Kid Capri rocked joints you knew, lots you didn’t know, a lot of original Hip Hop samples, and breaks galore.
I’m hoping that this set turns up somewhere in mp3 form so I can just sit back and nod my head while I’m doing my thing. Ashamed that as a New Yorker I missed this impromptu set, but definitely happy that it was all captured on video. Capri is a legend, and barreling through these 45’s at lightning speed, he kept the spirit and true meaning of “Doin’ it in the Park”. Rock breaks? Capri’s got ’em. Feel good BBQ jams? Bet. Here is a true Hip Hop legend taking it back to the very core of what Hip Hop is all about. It’s stuff like this, DJ’s like Capri and their Old School attitude, that we here at Flea Market Funk want to help preserve. If we all do our part, this music will live on forever. Enjoy this, as it’s not always that a guy like Capri let’s it all hang out on 45, who knows when it will go down again? Keep Diggin’!
Shout out to Technician the DJ for uploading this.
