KURTIS BLOW - NACE UNA ESTRELLA EN EL RAP


Curtis "Kurtis Blow" Walker (9 de agosto de 1959, en Harlem, New York)
es uno de los raperos pioneros en la industria de la grabación, y una
de las primeras estrellas del mainstream. "The Breaks" (1980), es uno
de los clásicos del hip-hop, con su pegadiza melodía de discoteca y su
estilo de rapear. Blow fue influido por DJ Hollywood.
Comenzó su carrera en Nueva York a mediados de los 70s, empezando como
breakdancer y DJ antes de ser rapero. En 1980 editó su primer álbum,
llamado Kurtis Blow. El primer single fue "Christmas Rappin'". Por
entonces, el "Rappers Delight" de The Sugarhill Gang se convertía en el
primer éxito del hip-hop.
Kurtis actuó en los largometraje Krush Groove y The Show. Además, Bob
Dylan apareció en el álbum de Kurtis Blow Kingdom Blow, de 1986. En
2004, Blow grabó la canción "Hey Everybody" con MaxC y Bomfunk MC's
para el álbum de ambos, Reverse Psychology. También coprodujo canciones
para Fat Boys, en 1984 y 1985.
Blow fue uno de los primeros raperos mainstream de la historia,
llegando a aparecer en un anuncio de la bebida refrescante Sprite.
Actualmente trabaja como DJ en Backspin 43, una emisora de radio de hip
hop old school.

Breakes on a bus brakes on a carBreaks to make you a superstarBreaks to win and breaks to loseBut these here breaks will rock your shoesAnd these are the breaksBreak it up break it up break it up!
If your woman steps out with another man(That's the breaks that's the breaks)And she runs off with him to JapanAnd the IRS says they want to chatAnd you can't explain why you claimed your catAnd Ma Bell sends you a whopping billWith eighteen phone calls to BrazilAnd you borrowed money from the mobAnd yesterday you lost your jobWell, these are the breaksBreak it up, break it up, break it up
Throw your hands up in the skyAnd wave 'em 'round from side to sideAnd if you deserve a break tonightSomebody say alright!(All right) Say ho-oo!(Ho-oo!) And you don't stopKeep on, somebody scream!(Owwwww!) Break down!
Breaks on a stage, breaks on a screenBreaks to make your wallet leanBreaks run cold and breaks run hotSome folks got 'em and some have notBut these are the breaksBreak it up, break it up, break it up!Break down!
To the girl in brown, stop messing around(Break it up, break it up)To the guy in blue, whatcha gonna do?To the girl in green, don't be so meanAnd the guy in red, say what I saidBreak down!
Brakes on a plane, brakes on a trainBreaks to make you go insaneBreaks in love, breaks in warBut we got the breaks to get you on the floorAnd these are the breaksBreak it up, break it up, break it up!Break down! Yo!
Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!
You say last week you met the perfect guy(That's the breaks, that's the breaks)And he promised you the stars in the skyHe said his Cadilac was goldBut he didn't say it was ten years oldHe took you out to the Red Coach grillBut he forgot the cash and you paid the billAnd he told you the story of his lifeBut he forgot the part about...his wife! Huh! Huh!Well, these are the breaks!Break it up, break it up, break it up!Break down
