The beauty of “Stuck” is that although editors Travis Lyles and Phoebe Connelly might have given suggestions, they didn’t demand guests with only a certain numbers of followers. Which meant I could go after such first-timers as 92-year-old Burt Bacharach, who appeared at a piano ready to walk us through the creation of “Walk on By,” or one of my favorite old-school hip-hop icons, Douglas Davis or, as he’s known, Doug E. Fresh. He isn’t half as famous as Drake, but he was a perfect guest, showing up on my iPhone in shades and with a generous smile. My favorite moment is when he talked about what it felt like to walk through Harlem in the 1980s, past the Apollo, past Bobby Robinson’s record shop, and how that led to creating “the fifth element” of hip-hop: the beat box. “I heard Grandmaster Flash, Spoonie Gee, Funky Four, and I say, ‘All right, I’m a do the baseline — boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.’ ”
