behind every good rapper is a good dj…. two turntables and a mac is all they need to get the beat going. way out west showcased if not the good, the bad and the ugly so at least the good, the old school and the cool, with the common (!) denominator that under their ponchos the gun is a microphone. common is my fave rapper all categories, and very photogenic too, de la soul provided the old school nostalgia and jean grae provided the corresponding new cool. a lady with attitude!
