Many warned her that the hip hop would soon expire, however, they were wrong. Fortunately, the genre celebrates its 50th anniversary this year!
“They were telling up that this has an expiration date like milk, so you’re going to have to get everything out of it while you can, but here we are 50 years later and that milked has turned into some cheese forreal!” Roxanne explained
