So .. The Bambaataa news.

  • Ive been following the story daily since hearing about it ...only 2 weeks or something but the news is truely terrible.
    Ive also heard gay rumours about him going back to the ELECTRO ROCK event and that he was takin an interest in someone there...
    however this whole underage molestation shit is just awful. i couldnt care a shit who is gay but this is just altogether far too creepy and sinister.

    old school pioneers and artists are all staying quiet.They really need to speak up about it ... regardless if they support Bam or not.

    there is so much to be said about this. it has tarnished hip hop history so bad yet it doesn't seem that many are realising just how much damage it has done.

    For me this could not of involved anyone worse. Ive thought about it a lot, and if you would of asked me the one person who i would hate to see being exposed as a paedo...id of said Bambaataa.

    For the first time I actually know how so many Jackson fans felt.

    what is everyone elses take on it? im finding it even difficult to write about.

  • and holiest of holy shit....

    I just saw right now that it has been posted about on Hassan Campell's facebook page....

    and the guy who committed suicide was VERY well known in the UK hip hop scene... fuck, this is just way too messed up.

    Yeah he was very well known and I knew him but not in the hip hop world, I knew him briefly after that around the start of 2002 in London where I used to see him at certain meetings and we would speak and have a laugh as he was a cool brother. I still play his music to this day. R.I.P. I never spoke to him about Hip Hop though. It was just never brought up by him or me even though I knew full well who he was as it wasn't all that long after his brief time on the UK Rap scene. Also he was known by his Hip Hop name in these meetings too (I never ever found out his real name!). These meetings by the way, well lets just say are a form of self help/group help support based meetings. He didn't even know I knew him from back then either as I didn't mention it. I regret that now.

    I aint been on this site from time. I used to post as Kerode my old school name from the late 80's back when I was part of a rap group called Power to the Max. We had some studio time paid for by Rham Records but we're never released due to the M.C going on all Hollywood on me. Same as my old mate General Burner from Formby who also had studio time from the same label which released 'A Guy Called Gerald's - Voodoo Ray who we met when we went to manc-chester to meet the label owners and he Gerald who was super cool by the way, said to us he heard our demo and liked it. Check out the record on that label by Grand Groove too by the way it's dope!

    I never heard about the Bam rumours though, until now and I met Bam as well, in NYC in 2006 at a b-boy jam in Brooklyn which was a dope day as I had met Caz earlier that day too during the tour he used to do of the old Hip Hop spots on the bus. I also met Cozmo in A1 in NYC records and bought both his album CD's off him in there and he signed my Sunnyview Jam On Revenge 12.

    Anyway some nasty mancs that used to post on here and on other forums/blogs made me stay away so thats why I did and I still hate mancs too even though Gerald did prove me wrong about them as he was cool and he was big at the time with his record which is one of the only house records I've ever liked . Also Martin from 808 state who worked in Easter Bloc was cool too..... Peace

  • Thats an interesting story bro. I posted the Grandgroove cut on here years back I remember. The Bam story has been 100% shut down all over the place. Any you can thank every fuckin pioneer for that. So damn annoying. Nobody is talking about it,and nobody wants to talk about it.... which I find both frustrating and utterly disgusting. And thats before we even get into KRS-ONE's retarded outbursts. Teacha my ass! To hell with that clown.
    The recent revelations regarding Bam has nothing good whatsoever about it. But i am following it daily in the hope something gets resolved somehow.
