I know, I know, episode 1 got a little crazy and your friends might be asking "ay did you watch episode 2?" Hopefully you lied and said the earthquake knocked out your internet or you was at work. But episode 2's craziness starts where episode 1's finished. The Fantastic Four Plus One is sitting in front of Grand Master Flash the 'Father of Hip-Hop' and he reaches in his pocket and pulls out the 'mighty' the 'mystery' the 'opening' I'm not talking about a Harry Potter wand, Homie pulled out a purple crayon. And gave the crew the mystery of the crayon to solve within 24 hours. It was this time when Zeke got a vision from watchin pigeons fly around in circles that the crayon is the key to Grand Master's "quick-mix theory" also known as the backspin technique.
He marks the record at the Get Down to always know where and when it starts and ends, also Zeke gets his rap name 'Books'. Fast-forward past a the producer settling a gambling debt by showing up to an audition for the niece of the person he owes money to, and the fact that Shaolin Fantastic is a drug dealer slash man whore, he decides to be legit and just DJ. Getting back to hip-hop, Grand Master Flash explains that you have to Dig a tunnel where the Get Down sits. Furthermore, the DJ must exist in 2 time paths, 1 is the current or the turntable playing the music right now, while the other time path is the future which is what turntable 2 will be playing next. Wait that sounds like some Back to the Future space time travel shit, it ain't time travel yet, but it is math involved... What??? Yep Grand Master Flash goes on to show how 4 revelations of the record is the beginning and the ending of the Get Down part of the record which starts 'Under the Needle'.
'Under the Needle' - This means beat ("Get Down part" ) is ready the to go and all the DJ has to do is let the record spin, Grand Master Flash explains "but remember as a DJ your always racing against the imminent wackness of the rest of the record." Which brings the next challenge of Shaolin Fantastic mastering 1 record. and playing one continuous beat of the Get Down. But this is one of the best parts cause it shows that nuthin worth havin in this life (i.e. being a DJ or anything else) is given, but it all has to be earned. Shaolin has to put in the hours of work before it happens, the Get Down.
Fast forward the part where Zeke helps the chick that curves him, a kidnapping of gang members, and ohh yea a gang burnt down Shaolin's crib and he lost all his records and turntables. So you know what that meant Shaolin went back to Deuce Bigalowin.
And there you have it episode 2 of the Get Down. So tell your friends you know the mystery of the crayon. But as for episode 3, tell them you, You gotta a checking account and savings account..... you know the rest... So its gonna be about 2 business days til my Netflix is back on. But the story don't stop there episode 3 is...........
