HIT IT & QUIT IT- Jan. 17, 2011: 'The B-Boy Special' with Eric Orr

Its no secret, New Yorker's have the gift of gab. This week's show further reinforces this fact.

In the studio for 'The B-Boy Special' was South Bronx artist and hop-hop luminary Eric Orr hyping his one-man show launching tonight at Rebel Yell Gallery on K. Road in Auckland PLUS rattling off some amazing stories about growing up in the South Bronx during the infancy and early school years of the hip-hop movement. Your hosts were rendered semi-dumbfounded as Eric casually recounted tales of coming up with Jazzy Jay, bombing with Keith Haring and helping Bambaataa construct his studio. W.T.F. Count me in at Rebel Yell this evening and Black Milk's 4-piece performance at FuZen later tonight.
