Uncle Ralph McDaniels is the original. Twenty five years ago Uncle Ralph McDaniels created the first ever urban music video program, Video Music Box. Video Music Box spawned the urban video music programming that we all take for granted today. If it were not for Video Music Box, programs like Yo MTV Raps, the Basement, 106 and Park, etc. may have never existed.
2008 marks the 25th Anniversary of Video Music Box. In celebration of the 25th anniversary, Uncle Ralph has planned 25 Video Music Box events, with the first taking place last weekend in Harlem NYC. At this kick-off event, DJ Clark Kent presented Uncle Ralph McDaniels with a gift, the “Video Music Box 25th Anniversary” Nike Air Force 1 Low.
