And the DJ that made the first scratch

from Ghostface Killah (Ft. Black Thought) – In Tha Park Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Ghost pays a subtle tribute to this nameless DJ (considered by most to be Grand Wizzard Theodore) by including a snippet of the famed “Fresh” scratch, first found on Fab 5 Freddy’s 1982 single “Change the Beat” and first scratched on Herbie Hancock’s 1983 single “Rockit” by Grandmaster D.ST. The “fresh” sample would go on to make countless appearances in rap records

Both “Change the Beat” and “Rockit” were produced by Bill Laswell and engineered by Martin Bisi. It’s rumored that Bisi is the one who originally suggested to D.ST that he should scratch the Fab 5 Freddy record on “Rockit”
