Celebrate Funk Friday with Afrika Bambaataa

Afrika Bambaataa is one of the originators of break-beat deejaying and is respectfully known as the Godfather and Amen Ra of hip hop culture as well as the father of electro funk. Through his co-opting of the street gang the Black Spades into the music and culture-oriented Universal Zulu Nation, he is responsible for spreading hip hop culture throughout the world.

“Planet Rock” is one of his signature tracks, and features a brilliant Kraftwerk sample. Enjoy!
