Classic hip-hop right here as the group Black Moon performs the “Who Got Da Props?” track on the very short lived Rosie Perez Presents Society Ride. Perez, who was coming off of her success in films like Do The Right Thing and White Men Can’t Jump, took to HBO with a concept that proved to be too edgy for the cable channel at the time.
Rosie Perez: ”I told [HBO] I wanted to do a live-to-tape hip-hop show with no compromise. I said, ‘I’m going to have a recording artist called BOSS, and she’s gonna say, ‘F— around and catch a bad one,’ and I’m gonna have reggae artists that say, ‘I like to dickie dickie.’ And they go, ‘Great, great, we love it.’ But when they actually saw it, they bugged out.”
Pay attention as you can hear Black Moon shout-out Funkmaster Flex and the late great Bernie Mac even introduces the Brooklyn MC to the crowd. Dope and rare footage!
