Hip Hop Forever
From his roots running a mobile sound system and dropping hip-hop at neighbourhood block parties Kenny Dope has come a long way. From creating his own label ‘Dope Wax’ to releasing underground hits on New York indie labels such as Strictly Rhythm, Cutting, Nervous and Big Beat to becoming one of the world’s most sought after live DJs, Kenny hasn’t stopped there…. By the time Todd Terry introduced him to Little Louie Vega Kenny had built a deserved reputation as one of the best beat men in town. His musical credits include the million selling Bucketheads project, the Nuyorican Soul album and the top 40 hip hop soul classic ‘I Can’t Get No Sleep’. This album was the sequel to ‘It Will Take A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back’ (BBE 1997), and continues the BBE association with the world’s number one production team – Masters At Work (see Louie Vega ‘Mad Styles and Crazy Visions’). It represents the mid to new school. 1988-94, a golden era in hip-hop. Credit is due to James Brown and George Clinton for their invaluable influence and any true music lover will appreciate the flavours dished out here because of the depth of knowledge shown in the choice of breaks the producers flip when creating new beats. Kenny Dope presents Hip-Hop Forever gives you 25 hip-hop cuts mixed live with love and style.
