Hip Hop History pt 4

THE MC
In the early days of HIP HOP an Mc sounded more like a smooth radio disc jockey. BAMBAATAA will always refer to original concepts of what an MC is and where is came from like SHIRLEY ELLI'S "The Name Game" and "the Clapping Song". And people like PIGMEAT MARKHAM's "Here Comes The Judge". Also credited were groups like THE BLACK POETS, and THE WATTS PROPHETS. Street snappin (mama joke) called THE DOZENS.
They were the masters of ceremonies, the mic controllers, the party pleasers, teasers, with the. By saying rhymes on the mic, and doing crowd call and responses, MC'S became the main focus of a jam, at times the most vital attractions as well. They were the stars of the show mainly because they were the most heard and most exposed out of all of the other elements of a jam. While the DJ was spinning the phattest break beats that made other DJ's wanna find out what that record was, the mc was manipulating the crowd with there clever word play. This eventually lead too mc's forming a crew with the DJ and throwing bigger jams that would include battles to see who had the tightest crew. The first mc on record to rhyme over break beats was a mc by the name of "COKE LA ROCK". KOOL HERC featured "COKE LA ROCK" in his earlier jams to fill in and crowd please while Herc was spinning records. The next mc (on record) to grab the mic in a Hip Hop jam was mc "COWBOY" known as an eventual member of the famed "FURIOUS 5 MC'S". At this point there were many mc's to grab the mic. Some of the most notable ones and there contributions were:
BUZY B: Known as the king of crowd pleasers, he was one of the most popular party rockers of his era.
MELLE MEL: Mel was known for his incredible lyrical skills. Before there was a RAKIEM, BIGGY SMALLS, AND BIG DADDY KANE, MEL WAS HOLDING IT DOWN.
GRAND MASTER CAZ: CAZ was also known for his lyrical skills in the same vein as MELLE MEL. CAZ precise delivery and ill metaphors, and was a key member in the COLD CRUSH 4 MC'S.
KOOL MOE DEE: MOE DEE was one of the best. He combined intricate lyrics with a fast rhyme style and along with his crew mates THE TREACHEROUS 3 (LA SUNSHINE, SPECIAL K) they had consecutive ghetto hit records that put them on the map. And one of the most unforgettable and famous battle of all times. KOOL MOE DEE-VS-BUZY B.
OTHER NOTABLE MC'S WERE
WHIPPER WHIP: He had the smoothest voice and precision delivery.
DATA ROCK: Also a great mc
COWBOY: a true legend, and smooth rhyme sayer
