“Keith Carter aka Legendary DJ Big Kap passed away today[February 3, 2016] in NYC at the age of 45. As one of the premier DJs from New York’s Flip Squad DJ crew, Kap’s impact on NYC Hip Hop is unparalleled.
His most memorable project was The Tunnel album with Funkmaster Flex, featuring some of Hip Hop’s royalty including Jay-Z, Eminem, Nas, Dr. Dre and more. The album debuted at 35 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, shifting nearly 100,000 copies in its first week.”
That’s from “The Source” and while I wasn’t a big fan of DJ Big Kap in practice (I never saw him live), in theory I worshipped that The Tunnel album (you can stream it below) and it is yet another sign of the inevitable movement of loss and found.
On the road to riches and diamond rings, real DJs set the pace for hip hop back in the day.
