Kurtis Blow

Artist: Kurtis Blow
LP: 12" single
Song: "Christmas Rappin'"
[ listen ]

Christmas just isn't Christmas without eggnog, snow, Christmas lights, and Kurtis Blow. You can read about Kurtis on Wikipedia here, where I've just learned that he was the very first rap artist signed to a major label, and that his name gets mentioned in a passage of formerly indecipherable lyrics to one of my favorite Tom Tom Club songs.
