IT WAS ON THIS DATE SEPT 29, 1980 KURTIS BLOW RELEASED HIS DEBUT SELF TITLED ALBUM KURTIS BLOW

Kurtis Blow is the self-titled debut album by American rapper Kurtis Blow. It was released on September 29, 1980, by Mercury Records. The record includes the song “The Breaks”, which was often sampled later in hip-hop records, mainly for its introduction made by Blow’s a cappella vocal, and for the drum break, giving a wordplay dimension to the title. “Rappin’ Blow, Pt. 2” was issued as a single that had a do-it-yourself B-side, the instrumental version. “Takin’ Care of Business” is one of the first hip hop and rock ’n’ roll crossover attempts.

The album was placed at number 71 on The Greatest 80 Albums of 1980 by Rolling Stone magazine.
