Visionary or snake-oil salesman? Regardless, the Duck Rock album was very influential in it’s day on the strength of ‘Buffalo Gals’ and ‘World’s Famous’ and the Would Ya Like More Scratchin’ EP, largely thanks to the great work of producer Trevor Horn and The World Famous Supreme Team (See Divine the Mastermind and Justice Allah the Superstar).

Wow, didn’t even know he died. Nobody on here old enough to appreciate his inventive spirit.

Heard the sad news from a work mate yesterday. Was going to google it but here is confirmation. Not good.

RIP to Malcolm McLaren…regardless of what people think, Malcolm McLaren loved Hip Hop culture and respected it as an artform way before alot of Johnny come lately types. The Punk scene and Hip Hop developed side by side in NYC and this video has all the elements of Hip Hop graf, b-boying, emceeing, djing, cutting, scratching, etc. This video is more true to the culture than 90% of the shit out today. This video was VERY influential in documenting Hip Hop (albeit with Malcolm’s own personal twist).

This video is still the shit in 2010. Too much of that snow white.

I remember watching Buffalo Gals on “New York Hot Tracks” back in the day (word to Carlos DeJesus). Just a another reminder that this music and culture will never again be what it was. RIP Malcolm.
