Wimbledon and the Golden Age of Hip Hop

'The Show' by Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew was a 1985 hit single that featured Wimbledon-born Slick Rick heavily. It was only the fourth Hip Hop single to reach Gold sales levels.

In 1989 Young MC, also born in Wimbledon, cemented the link between South London and East Coast Hip Hop with his song 'Bust a Move'.
