In the begining...

It's always good to know your roots, and MTV is no exception. Before the mass commercialised television network that exists today, was a semi commercialised network! However, once MTV had understood the power and importance of Hip Hop, they embraced it by creating the legendary Yo! MTV Raps. Here is the first episode of Yo! MTV Raps, the quality isn't quite as good as you might like it to be, but you can imagine the type of VHS tape that originally captured this and remember that it's from August 6th 1988!!! 

Yo! MTV Raps was still airing in some European countries until quite recently despite the US show ceasing transmition in 1999, but nothing compares to the early episodes and the raw energy that it had.
