   DJ KOOL RED ALERT – JAMALSKI – LE BIJOUTIER : To be honest these two guys are the one who made me who I am today. A raggamuffin radio DJ defending hip hop to the fullest……nuff respect!!

Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.27.38 PM CHIEF 69 – This young man is one of the most surprising cat you could meet in the Hip Hop world. MC, B-Boy and Writer, this 22 year old shares a true vision on the Nation and teaches free B-Boy and graffiti class weekly. This shot is taken from A walk in the South Bronx documentary coming soon.   Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.24.09 PM INCREDIBLE……for those who know me, you all know i am a big tall dude….But this cat is a Panther….he was the tallest in the Party, taller than the Ghettoblaster i built that was already 7 feet tall…   Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.22.56 PM JAZZY JAY –  LAVA 1&2 – Celebrating 40 years with Universal Zulu Nation legends. DJ Jazzy Jay and Lava 1&2 rocked all the parties with a smile.   PEACE UNITY LOVE and HAVING FUN…   Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.21.16 PM GRAND MASTER CAZ – MK-1 : Caz was all over the place and did it all in the early days of Hip Hop, and he still does. MK-1 came all the way from Australia to represent for Sydney and his chapter. Both of them where happy to pose for the record.     Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.19.50 PM CHUCK D : The political conscience of Hip Hop… founder of Public Enemy in the 80′s, he is definitly still the man he was back in the days… And he still get the outmost respect for his work and implication in the culture… it was a real pleaseure to get together again after the photos I did in 2007 for their album….it’s been a long time…   Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.18.52 PM POP MASTER FABEL – Original member of Rock Steady Crew, I met Pop Master Fabel in Marseille in 2000 when he came for a B-Boy workshop. I have seen him here and there over the years, but would have never expected to see him pop his special pippin and lockin moves in the street in front of the giant Ghettoblaster… what an honor….and what a great family days it was….   Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.16.23 PM ZULU KING SLONE : After months of organising the building of the Ghettoblaster, Slone, Graffiti hall of famer 2011, was honored to paint my giant sculpture. I was definitly honored too. Both of us know that it’s the beginning of a great collaboration.   Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.11.51 PM ZULU NATION – The Universal Zulu Nation is 40 years old, or 40 years strong I should say. Afrika Bambaataa leads the way, for this Universal power that is here to stay…   Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 5.09.58 PM   UZN FAMILY DAY – the Graffiti jam on family day was a great success… Over the fact that a dozen of graffiti writers got together to paint this giant wall on the side of The National Black Theater, the response from the people of Harlem was intense. For many reasons people where happy to see that ZULU was back on the block.   Graffiti is still up to this day an outlaw for of art, worth millions in the galleries and modern art museums all over the globe… New York City is still pressuring this art form and contemning its display…..lets fight to keep our culture alive an our element visible…   12/03/2013 M aka Le Bijoutier

GOSPEL of HIP HOP par KRS ONE


Indispensable! Federateur! Krs One pose encore un pavé de plus dans les fondations du mouvement Hip Hop international. Avec Gospel of Hip Hop, First Instrument sorti chez Powerhopuse Books, Krs One explique, definit et organise toute la culture Hip Hop en la recentrant sur ses bases. Son discours est clair, precis, ordonné, tellement ordonne que le livre ressemble a une bible. Krs One maitrise son sujet, lui qui a toujours oeuvre pour un Hip Hop dont nous sommes tous acteurs.
Ce livre est un MUST HAVE dans la bibliotheque de tout Hiphoppa. La version originale en anglais est parfois dure a aborder pour toute personne n etant pas bilingue, mais son contenu donnera pour sur envie d’approfondir la langue de Shakespeare pour enfin pouvoir mettre des mots et definitions sur des pratiques quotidiennes.
KRS ONE rend hommage a Charlie Ahearn realisateur de Wild Style, le film culte de la culture Hip Hop, en ces mots : “Charlie Ahearn est le premier, le seul, a nous avoir depeint non pas tel qu’Ils souhaitent que soyons mais vraiment tel que nous sommes”. Retournons lui le compliment pour un livre qui parle de nous tel que nous sommes.
Peace
