Biography

Afrika Bambaataa (born Kevin Donovan on April 17 or October 4, 1957 or 1960) is a DJ and community leader from the South Bronx, who was instrumental in the early development of hip hop throughout the 1970s.

Contributed to what could be argued as the first colaboration between rap and rock music when he recorded “World Destruction” with John Lydon from Sex Pistol and Public Image LTD fame.

The song “Renegades of Funk” was covered by Rage Against the Machine for their covers album of the same name.

The main riff in the Amthem Planet Rock was taken from Kraftwerks
“Trans Europe Express”. Which shows that these guy’s have taste was well as talent!
