So What Exactly Is ‘the Get Down’? Let Grandmaster Flash Explain
"Oh shit, he took my beat and he glued it to this picture."

Is it freaky for you that you have this kid playing you, and you’re right there watching him?
It was freaky for me when I went to a screening. And I’m looking at this guy who looks like me, DJing me. Shit kind of fucked me up! I was teary-eyed over that. You know, and the second time, they sent me to the editing room, and this room, it’s like a little theater and it has this huge movie screen, and it has this big console where they edit. And Mamoudou — or should I say, young Flash — is on this huge screen. It was quite an experience to see that. I thought Baz was such a super-anal person. They sent me to props and asked me, “Were these the turntables of the time? The mixer? The speakers?” My partner reminded me that my first speakers that I built, I found some pieces of wood and I made a square box, something like that, and I put a speaker inside — but the top half I put Christmas lights in, so it would look kind of like disco. When I walked into the shop and saw they had built one just like it, I just started crying, because I grew up poor, we had nothing. And to think about it, this era has never been put on a big-enough platform.

Which is why to the hip-hoppers of 2016, I want to say: Continue. But if you get a minute, and you’re sitting on the couch, just take a minute to watch this series. And perhaps it will tie it all together on why the 1970s mean so much to 2016 and we’re talking almost 50 years [later]. Why does it all come together? You should know that. And that’s why I’m so happy to have been a part of this.

“Something happened. It was so embarrassing. My skin feels itchy with it. I hate to think that people would have gone home and talked about it…like it was a joke…over their Yorkshire puddings or summat. It’s too much out there. I don’t even know how to explain it. It smashes up all of your senses. I’m not strong enough to deal with it all on my own.”
