Known as the godfather of hip-hop, Afrika Bambaataa is a DJ from the South Bronx who was instrumental in the development of hip-hop through the 1980s. The man behind hip hop/electro funk classic Planet Rock over the years has co-produced and performed with the likes of James Brown, George Clinton, Leftfield, Jungle Brothers and A Tribe Called Quest and his futuristic soundscapes became a major influence in laying the foundation for breaks, electro, freestyle, techno and house music. An architect of hip-hop, he coined the terms ‘MCing’, ‘DJing’, ‘B-boying’ and ‘graffiti writing’.
