God-Hop Part V


From the book "Yes, Yes, Y'all: The experience Music Project. Oral History of Hip-Hop's First Decade" by Jim Fricke and Charlie Ahearn. Pg 26.

So even the gang members loved us because they didn't want to mess with what was happening. You know? They come in, keep to themselves. Not only that, a lot of Five-Percenters (a splinter group of the Nation of Islam) used to come to my might call them "peace guards," and they used to hold me down: "Yo Herc, don't worry about it." So we was just havin' a good time.

Kool Herc one of the GodFathers of Hip-Hop.
