Fab 5 Freddy recently stopped by the KDAY Morning Show with Romeo to talk about the Contact High exhibit at the Annenberg Photography Space, his new ‘Grass Is Greener’ documentary on Netflix, first hip hop tour overseas and the current state of hip hop.
Fab 5 Freddy went on to talk about the current exhibit, saying how it highlights important pictures in hip hop history, while highlighting the photographers that took them.
“The curator [of the project] is a woman by the name of Vikki Tobak. This is the first ever, comprehensive photo exhibit of the history of hip hop images. [It ranges] from the very beginning all the way up to Kendrick, Asap Rocky and stuff like that that’s going on now,” he said.
Fab 5 Freddy went on to talk about how he’s the first rapper to have a hip hop tour overseas.
“Nobody had really left New York City for the most part, let alone fly across the Atlantic. We tore it up! It was incredible because there had been no real hip hop tours like this. Maybe Rapper’s Delight was just coming out, so that was the very beginning of it all. We just kept it very natural. We just moved around on-stage, with people spray painting in the background and the DJ playing records, so it was interesting.”
The legendary artist goes on to talk about the golden era of hip hop and his new Netflix documentary, “Grass Is Greener.”
