Historical Anderson Icon Passes Away this Week.....

James Robert “ Radio ” Kennedy , a beloved fixture of an Anderson, South Carolina high school football program whose life served as inspiration for the 2003 film “Radio,” passed away Sunday. He was 73 years old. Kennedy, who was mentally disabled, was an unofficial 11th grade student at T.L.

He further commented: "This thing that I did had not existed before, and I am one of many where I come from. It ended up being called hip-hop, taking the drum break from pop, rock, jazz, blues, funk, disco, R+B, and using duplicate copies of records. I would take one section and repeat it over and over again." Grandmaster Flash is an icon of all proportions to me, of who himself I've heard reference on Evolution Of Hip Hop Pt.1 ". That a l

Rapping and hip-hop have become cultures that were grew and developed out of the mean streets of the South Bronx in the 1970s’. Would Rap and Hip Hop it be considered a cult? People follow what the rappers say and do, and how they dress and talk, actually when you break down the word culture you have the word cult within it. Now that millions follow these rap artists closely, and the music is now overlapping popular society, it would probably be considered more of a pop cult or pop culture. There have been some very influential artists, musicians, teachers, authors, and figures who have helped promote and shape the culture of rap and hip-hop, the names go on and on but one of its major influences into it
