DJ Kool
Guy Lochhead, 15/09/12
American rapper who found mainstream success in the ’90s with ‘Let Me Clear My Throat’. His style was markedly different to the most popular rap of the time – bringing a Washington go-go drum sound and old-school block party flavour at a time when rap was pre-occupied with being cool and gangsta posturing. The single, and DJ Kool’s reputation with a live crowd, led a few rappers back to the old-school, changing the course of rap. As good as some of his material is, it could never be described as timeless or anything.
