RESPECT THE LEGENDS The Kangol Kid

up the charts, U.T.F.O. was voted best Rap group at the Urban Music Awards and scored featured spots on Don Cornelius’ Soul Train.

KANGOL is an entertainment entrepreneur who began as a break-dancer for the Super Producing team/R&B Band FULL FORCE to later become a member the legendary Rap group WHODINI as a break-dancer. His group U.T.F.O. became the #1 Rap and Breakdance act in the country. While “Roxanne, Roxanne,” their phenomenal Top 10 single climbed

HIP-HOP HISTORY

Creation of the term hip hop is often credited to Keith Cowboy, rapper with Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. However, Lovebug Starski, Keith Cowboy, and DJ Hollywood used the term when the music was still known as disco rap. It is believed that Cowboy created the term while teasing a friend who had just joined the U.S. Army, by scat singing the words “hip/hop/hip/hop” in a way that mimicked the rhythmic cadence of soldiers marching. Cowboy later worked the “hip hop” cadence into a part of his stage performance, which was quickly used by other artists such as The Sugarhill Gang in “Rapper’s Delight”. Universal Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa is credited with first using the term to describe the subculture in which the music belonged; although it is also suggested that it was a derogatory term to describe the type of music. The first use of the term in print was in The Village Voice, by Steven Hager, later author of a 1984 history of hip hop.

Hats off to Kangol Headwear whom played a major role in enabling KANGOL to become the first product endorsed Hip-Hop artist when former Kangol Headwear President, Reg Borgia, finalized the agreement that later inspired the formal RunDMC and Adidas relationship. The nickname KANGOL was acquired from neighborhood friends as a “nod” to the many KANGOL hats he owns and wears. But KANGOL hats are not the only hats he wears! KANGOL is a producer, composer, performer, artist manager, songwriter, president of Kreative Entertainment Group and CEO of Done Right PR. KANGOL’s leadership within the HipHop community speak volumes to those uninformed that believe Hip-Hop is synonymous with drugs, jail time, child

abandonment, child support, baby-mama drama or any form of negativity. He is proof that those aforementioned unfortunate subjects do not define a Hip-Hop artist and are the furthest from his character. For the record, KANGOL has always lived a sober lifestyle. Other than that, KANGOL is a father of three sons who are aspiring recording artists that “can sing, rap and dance in just one show” as well as their dad. KANGOL’s latest endeavours were embarked in the world of cinema with his first independent film entitled, “Nightmare.” He was also featured in the motion picture “The Other Side of Hip-Hop,” which included an original song written and produced by KANGOL featuring his sons’ R&B group “Project: Plan B”. He continues to go “Hollywood” with his featured role in HBO’s “The Lost Book of Rap” as character, Professor Firestein, scheduled to premiere this Summer 2013.

JUST THE LYRICS: Jay Z “Oceans” Dope boy still smelling like cocaina/ White boat/ white robe/ Can he be more cleaner The oil spill that BP ain’t clean up/I’m anti Santa Maria/ Only Christopher we acknowledge/ is Wallace/ I don’t even like Washingtons in my pocket/ Black card go hard when I’m shopping/ Boat dock in front of Hermes picking cotton Silk and fleeces/ lay on my Jesus/ Oh my God, I hope y’all don’t get sea sick/ See me in shit you never saw/ If it wasn’t for these pictures they wouldn’t see me at all/ Aww, whole world in awe/ I crash through glass ceilings, I break through closed doors/ I’m on the ocean, I’m in heaven/ Yachting, Ocean 11 [Hook: Frank Ocean] I see elephant tusk on the boar of a sailing lady/ Docked on the Ivory Coast Mercedes in a row/ winding down the road/ I hope my black skin don’t dirt this white tuxedo/ Before the Basquait show/ and if so Well fuck it, fuck it/ Because this water drown my family This water mixed my blood This water tells my story This water knows it all Go ahead and spill some champagne in the water Go ahead and watch the sun blaze On the waves Of the ocean

[Verse 2: Jay-Z] Me and Ty Ty is like Pablo and Popeye/Winding dirt roads on mopeds spilling opus/ Welcome to the magnum opus The Magna Carta/ The best-selling author Decoded On the holiday playing “Strange Fruit”/ If I’mma make it to a billi I can’t take the same route/ Swoosh/ Now that’s the sound of the border/ Swoosh Now that’s the sound of a baller Muhammad Hovi my back against the rope/ the black Maybach I’m back inside the boat/ Shepard Fairey they finally gave me some hope/ Can’t believe they got a nigga to vote/ Democrat, nope I sold dope/ In trouble water I had to learn how to float/ On the ocean I’m in heaven/ Yachting, Ocean 11
