(AllHipHop News) Ralph McDaniels lives, breathes and creates Hip Hop and has done so for over 30 years. As the founder of the legendary and ahead of its time music video platform Video Music Box (aka The Box), Ralph became such an integral part in the beginning of so many Hip Hop acts that he is universally referred to as Uncle Ralph.
His contributions to the artform do not stop at being the first music video platform for Hip Hop artist, but him and Brooklyn Bodega’s Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival has been a constant showcase of homegrown New York talent along with a conflation of stars from the new and older generations of Hip Hop.
Uncle Ralph spoke EXCLUSIVELY with AllHipHop at the ninth annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival about the performances, his history with Pusha T, the importance of Hip Hop festivals and even reviews Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail.
