Afrika Bambaataa

  Kevin Donovan (born April 19, 1957), Afrika Bambaataa from the Bronx, was originally a member of the Black Spades. He is considered the Real Father of Hip Hop as a Culture. Many will say that "Kool Herc Started it, but Bambaataa Fathered it", into what it has become today. Bambaataa was known as the man with a thousand records, he was knwon for experimenting with different kids of music that contained Break Beats or Funky sounds that would keep the party rocking, and if the song did not move the crowd it is said that Bam would take the record of the turntabel and break it in front of the crowd. Bambaataa was influenced by many great DJ's including Disco King Mario and Kool Herc, But make no mistake about it, DJ Afrika Bambaataa developed his own unique of playing records, It was not just about how fast you cut or how fancy his mixing was, it was about playoing the right Break Beat at the Right Time. This is an art in itself, Knowing the crowd and how to get the crowd AMPED UP (full of energy). Bambattaa was more than a DJ, he was also a writer (graffiti) and started the first BBoy Crew in the early 70's called the ZULU KINGS, which would eventually lead to the ZULU NATION. The Zulus were the biggest Hip Hop Crew/Organization in the Bronx and in New York City. With his MC Crews like the JAZZY 5, COSMIC FORCE, SOUL SONIC FORCE, He would change the game of Hip Hop Music and turn out one of the biggest anthems in Hip Hop Culture by blending the Hip Hop Sound with the Electronic sounds of Kraftwerk, he hlped pioneer the ELECTRO FUNK SOUND in the big hit PLANET ROCK.

  Bambaataa grew up in the tough streets of the South Bronx. He eventually won an essay contest that earned him a trip to Africa, where he learned of the famous Zulu Tribe. He brought the knowledge of the Zulu's to the Bronx and united many Gang members, BBoys/BGirls, Graffiti Writers, MC's and DJ's under the banner of THE UNIVERSAL ZULU NATION. 

  Bambaatta always saw the vision of Hip Hop as an international youth culture that would unite Hip Hop Heads all over the world. He also hlped create slogans for Hip Hop like "THE 4 ELEMENTS" and along with the late James Brown created a song that would be the ultimate slogan for Hip Hop Culture called "Unity Rap" that shouted the chorus "PEACE, UNITY, LOVE, and HAVING FUN".  Back

Bua Paints Hip Hop

Justin Bua is probably the most well known Urban Artist on the planet. I am sure either you, or someone you know has a Bua poster on his or her wall right now. He grew up on the same streets as many original Hip Hop Icons like Frosty Freeze (RIP) and Ken Swift. And has lived the life of a New York Street Style Dancer and Artist. His paintings sell all over the world, and his client list is a who's who of the Music, Athletic and Political world. For this brother to honor me in such a way has touched me deep, because I never really look at myself as an achiever, but more as a person who is still striving to achieve.
