Run DMC’s DJ to spin at Darby’s on Sept. 21
The art of DJing is still alive.
For most of the time in hip-hop, DJs have played the background while the MC got most of the shine. But that wasn’t always the case. In fact, during the early days of hip-hip, it was the DJ that got top billing. Just look at the names of some of the pioneering groups in hip-hop – Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five (Flash was the DJ), DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, (DJ) Eric B & Rakim.
