July 01, 1979 - On This Date In Hip-Hop, Sony releases the Walkman (Japan). Music had officially become mobile. The 1st model, Walkman TPS-L2, came with a price tag of $150.00 and had TWO headphone jacks. Sh!t, I would have gladly traded the extra headphone jack for a rewind button - which it lacked.
