15 Hip Hop Early Pioneers

Hip Hop My Way wants to pay homage to some of the pioneers that paved the way for us to do what we love to do in a culture that belongs to us. Keep in mind there were so many to choose from that we couldn’t cover them all, but we did shout out a few of our favorites. Although not everyone on the list was there from day one, each of them played a part in molding this amazing inclusively diverse culture we call Hip Hop! Give us a quick shout and tell us who we should include in Part Two! Peace.
