We also have a brand new ‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? editorial by @KCDaRookee from the UK. He has quite an interesting story,
KC Da Rookee was born in Derby in the East Midlands and moved with his Mother and Sister aged 2 to Nottingham. KC’s Mother introduced him to Hip Hop by purchasing him his first single – Doug E Fresh featuring Slick Rick “The Show”. Since then KC has been living and breathing the Hip Hop life.
KC joined the British Army aged 15 and after 1 year of basic training was posted to Germany. On weekends KC would leave the Army camp and visit the local Hip Hop clubs, immersing himself in the local culture and scene. After 5 years, he decided to leave the Army, learn fluent German and pursue a career in music.
Check out what hip hop means to him:
