The Fearless Four, Treacherous Three, Crash Crew. I even fucked around and hooked up with Prince Whipper Whip, from The Cold Crush Brothers/Fantastic Five, and the movie Wild Style that’s my main man, shit his deejay Grand Wizard Theodore was the one who invented scratching, how fucking classic can you get. Shit I just talked to him the other day.
