My first jam was at Hotel Diplomat opening for Hollywood.
Hip Hop is thee dominant youth culture in the world right now.
I used to date Latoya for awhile, I was a close freind of the family.
The Bronx is famous for two things. Hip-hop, and 26 world championships.
I was called Kool Dj Kurt Walker... but they wanted tocall me Kurtis Blow.
Pete Dj Jones was the first person that I saw with 2 turntables. This was 1972.
Yeah when I was 7 or 8 my moms would have little parties, and I would play the music.
When I was 13 I had a fake Id that said that I was 19. I was getting in all the clubs.
I was signed when I was 19 years old, in 1980. I went to Germany and France. Seeing the world at that time was just an awesome experience for a teenager.
Well I was always a hustler... I ran numbers; I wasn't a stick up kid, but I was a fence for them. I used to sell weed; and was kicked out of Music and Art for that.
