fact: the first DJ is Kool Herc, a Jamaican and the first rapper is Coke Le Rock, he was white.
... it's like this........

Firstly...

Coke La Rock is NOT white. Click the link below....



Scroll down to the second picture, and Coke La Rock is 2nd after D-Nice... standing next to Kool Herc (the guy with the hat on)

Secondly...

The style of "rapping/M.Cing" Coke La Rock used, came from Jamaican Toasting: :D

"Originally called emceeing, rapping draws roots from toasting. In the United States, Coke La Rock is credited with boasting crowds; he worked with Kool Herc. "La Rock didn’t rap as we’d recognize it now but was more in the style of the Jamaican sound system toasters or black radio announcers hyping a record. Still, several of his pet party motivating slogans ("Ya rock and ya don’t stop!" "Rock on my mellow!" "To the beat y’all!") would become rap staples. Some old schoolers a.ssert that La Rock was the first hip hop rapper."
ref:

Thirdly

It is advisable to research things if you are ever in doubt of what you heard/saw/read/thought....

Just for those who are a bit




Facts

-Grandmaster Flash is a 'Bajan. (re: he was born in Barbados)

-Also in Jamaica, the D.J is what we (Hip Hopers) would consider the M.C... So Coke was in fact, a D.J...

add Bow Wow to the list of robbery victims. remember that mickey mouse chain that jermaine dupri gave him? SNATCH!! haha!
:applause:

anybody saw his new album cover :thumbsdow :thumbsdow :thumbsdow

/yoda/gangster,he is not/yoda/


Ice Cube as well. He got beat for one of those "W" chains supposedly by someone from the Soul a.ssassins camp when him and B-Real were beefin.




Have you ever heard Eminem claim that he pulled a gun out on ICP?

Well he pulled a gun out on their road manager, trying to prove something I guess, well the sh*t was unloaded, and supposedly he was nervous and his hands were shaking so hard he dropped it.


the only reason purple haze was pushed back so long is because frekey zekey was in jail and couldnt do the skits



heres some bay gossip

e-40 and mac dre were beefin over a girl..its rumored that the two bay legends funk came when a dude from mac dres neighborhood the country club crest, took 40's girl and 40 beat the dude down fro disrespecting his brother. thats why to this day hillside and crest side dont get along...they each made several diss songs before squashing the beef--the hoods havent.

the luniz aint hard but east oakland respects that they went major and still rep the town so they got thier back

as stated earlier posts the game isnt welcomed in the bay--bay artists--but his 15 year old fans would show up

master p was ran out the bay because he didnt help none of the people that introduced him to the game. or had his back.

c-bo is in jail for shootin his baby momma--true fact

luniz and too short beef is because too short wouldnt let them be part of the dangerous crew


suge knight paid that cat $5000 dollars to a.ssault dr dre at the vibe awards specifically during his lifetime acheivement award segment
AT NIGG@$ THAT DONT KEEP IT REAL AT HOME

More on Suge.
In 2001, Suge Knight was released from prison and tried to re-start his label by signing new artists such as Crooked I, Tha Realist, Eastwood, and, under the pseudonym "N.I.N.A.", the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes of TLC, before her untimely death in a car accident in 2002.
Knight announced death Row Records would join with other labels to produce a Christmas hip-hop album to benefit families of soldiers serving in Iraq.
Suge is currently planning his autobiography "American Dream/American Nightmare" to be released this holiday season. He has hinted that he will describe his experiences as a bodyguard and rap impresario and relate stories about John F. Kennedy, Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and the "scoop" on Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, as well as his first public statement about the deaths of Tupac and Biggie. Suge has also planned a movie to tell the "real story" of death Row.
Throughout his career in the music business, Suge has been both entrepreneurial and charitable. He insisted on owning master recordings, for instance. He also oversaw non-musical businesses that had ties to the gangsta rap way of life, notably the custom auto-hydraulics shop Let Me Ride, named for Dr. Dre's Chronic ode to cruising. At the same time, Suge embarked on ambitious programs--some not realized--ranging from entertaining single mothers on Mother's Day to caring for soul singers left poor after their careers were finished.

This is correct...

Yeah his FIRST debut was on the Onyx track 'React' in 98... But as ADrake22 said "major", that is undoubtedly when he released the controversial single wit the Mad Rapper, 'How To Rob'... I remember it well.....
