Description

Presented in Association with Globe Star Media.

Best known for his platinum hip-hop classic “It Takes Two,” Rob Base along with childhood friend, DJ E-Z Rock rode their smash hit into R&B radio stations as well as dance clubs around the world and provided a touchstone for the style known as “hip-house,” a mix of hip-hop rhymes infused with the musical stylings of dance music. Massive club and radio airplay helped the album go multi-platinum and earned Rob Base “Single of the Year” honors both in Spin Magazine and The Village Voice. His second single, “Get on the Dance Floor” continued Rob’s dance appeal, with his lyrical skills retaining his street credentials as a rapper. The smash single, “Joy and Pain” is a classic hip-hop song that still plays all over the world.

For more than a decade, DJ Funkmaster Flex has reigned as America’s number one hip-hop radio personality and reaches more than two million listeners a week on his radio show. Join Funkmaster Flex as he hosts Salute to Hip-Hop, a nationwide series of concerts that celebrates hip-hop and honors the generations of artists that have shaped it and carry on its influence today.
