Hip Hop My Way wants to pay homage to some of the pioneers that paved the way for us to do what we love to do in a culture that belongs to us. Keep in mind there were so many to choose from that we couldn’t cover them all, but we did shout out a few of our favorites. Although not everyone on the list was there from day one, each of them played a part in molding this amazing inclusively diverse culture we call Hip Hop! Give us a quick shout and tell us who we should include in Part Two! Peace.
