Created by Ted Demme who had such a natural fondness for hip hop and rap music, he saw that the music — in its infancy — had great potential with a solid impact worldwide.

From its pilot episode, which gained national attention and critical fanfare, MTV could no longer ignore the demand for hip-hop music and that’s how Yo! MTV Raps was born. Thanks, Ted!
