Big Daddy Kane:
Big Daddy Kane is a Brooklyn, New York M.C. who undisputedly defined the term "lyricist" in the world of hip-hop. Along with the lyrical ingenuity he brought to the genre, he also introduced innovative live performances as well. Kane was the first rapper to ever hold not one but two sold out shows at the world famous Apollo Theater for women only. These lives performances, which consisted of theatrics, choreography and tailored costumes proved that Big Daddy Kane was not only an M.C., he was a full entertainer. Kane revolutionized hip-hop fashion and the way hip-hop shows were performed.
Kane has endured a substantive music career. He has several gold albums, endless music accolades including a Grammy award. He also received a VH1 Hip Hop Honor in 2005.
DJ Trumastr is an international touring DJ based out of Albany, New York. Infused with a rich knowledge of music, this creative innovator spins infectious blends that transcend both cultural and generational boundaries. Although mostly inspired by the classic sounds of Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop, R&B and Soul, DJ Trumastr's skill on the decks knows no limit. A master of versatility, this DJ/producer can rock any party from small private events to the big stage.
Und3rstading is a group dedicated to all who have transcended having the mere knowledge of rap. Those who have gained true...UND3RSTANDING. #Peace
