Aaahhhh....Dr. Kwame I presume? A Lesson in Hip Hop

Download this project and learn what Hip Hop used to be. Before rims, before Krunk, before beef...long before there was a dirty south... Before guns and crack, and back in the days before we started calling our women out of their names. There was a time when you could play hip hop in front of your parents....although they still weren't trying to hear it. Back in the day when Hip Hop was about art and expression - and a way to get girls of course. This was what a boy genius does when he enters a studio. Takes some classic samples, drum machines, few keyboards... and a lot of talent... and then proceeds to entertain you....using lyrical skill, wit and imagination While riding some of the funkiest grooves of all time.. Truly one of the greatest PRODUCERS of all time.. I am wondering when the Hip Hop Hall of Fame will open??? KWAME will be in there. Get this and take a lesson in hip hop. And he is still working that tells you how strong his skills are.

A forgotten (near) classic from the golden era...

Kwame may be lost in the haze of late 80's MTV Raps superstars, but he's more than just polka-dots. While not a lyrical genius in the mold of Rakim, he does combine the story-telling flow of a Dana Dane with the danceablity of Big Daddy Kane's best hits. The southern college influenced jams are at their sharpest on this second album. Check out "The Rhythm" and "Push The Panic Button!!!", they have a very go-go ramshackle approach that's sure to move your feet. And it may stretch its running time, but "The Man We All Know and Love" still stands head and shoulders above what 'the Fresh Prince' was doing at the same time. Kwame is now a great producer, rocking several great tracks on the new Missy release.

Truly underrated

This IS hip-hop. Youngsters of today... take note!

In contrast to many '90s rappers, Kwamé fashioned a good-natured, humorous, somewhat intellectual persona for himself and is one of the few rappers to utilize a live band (A New Beginning) both live and in the studio. Born Kwamé Holland, he grew up in New York City's jazz scene, receiving his first set of drums from Lionel Hampton and hanging out with Stevie Wonder as a child. Kwamé's 1989 debut, Kwamé the Boy Genius: Featuring a New Beginning, was produced by Hurby "Luv Bug" Azor (Salt-N-Pepa) and...
