Desert Isle Discs 

MC-producer Johnny La Rock shares his favorite discs.

1. DJ Shadow, Endtroducing

I never knew instrumental music could be so personal. I heard it and was hooked.

2. Hayden, Everything I Long For

Takes me back to being a teenager. I don't think I would've survived without it.

3. Stevie Wonder, Songs in the Key of Life

He's the best, first thing in the morning. If he doesn't make you appreciate life, nothing will.

4. Radiohead, The Bends

Thom Yorke's voice still gives me chills. Every song is amazing.

5. DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper

My earliest memory of hip-hop, and more important than people admit.
