In this month’s Legendary Corner we are celebrating the prime minister of mixtapes, DJ Kid Capri. Born David Anthony Love in Bronx, New York, Kid Capri was born creatively ambitious, scaling his family's old Zenith stereo system as an attempt to scratch records before he was even ten years old.
We are loving this month’s Celebrity Pick, hip hop artist, “MF Doom.” The MC known as MF Doom was born Daniel Dumile in London in 1971, according to StarPulse.com. His family moved to Long Island, New York, when he was a child. His hip hop debut came with the group KMD, which released the album Mr. Hood on Elektra Records in 1991.
Peep out some of the underground’
This month we would like to honor spoken word artist, “Georgia Me.” You know its Tamika Harper by the sound of her shoes. Coming down the stairs of her mother’s home on Westmoor Drive on Atlanta’s west side, they make a big noise. Compared with the black leather Roman sandal-stilettos that laced halfway up her legs when she made her Broadway debut last year, these tan strap pumps are elfin. But they’ve still got drama. So when Harper, who uses the stage name Georgia Me, finally appears in the room, she fills it as certainly as the overstuffed floral chairs and the bookcase of family...
Check out hip hop artist Jah I Witness who brings nothing but hot positive flavor to the table. The genesis began in November of 1978 in the small town of Petersburg, VA. This was the time Jah-I-Witness Emcee, born Genesis Osagboro Ridley, entered this world. Born the son of, musician/activist, Olamina of Awareness Art Ensemble (A.A.E.), a very influential force in introducing African culture and reggae music to the mid-atlantic region, Jah-I’s musical roots run long and deep.
Hip hop artist Sunny Tuff is doing big things!! As a young aspiring artist, Sunny Tuff seemed to disappear while digging in his aunt's giant record collection, lost in his own imagination. His passion and creativity eventually led him to the turntables. Far from the days of spinning at house parties, making his own mixtapes and playing thirteen hours at his aunts wedding. From dancing, to beatboxin’, to rockin’ mics. His dedication has made Sunny indestructible. Appearing on 3 DJ Green Lantern mixtapes; a DJ/producer from the Bronx who has worked with Nas, Busta Rhymes, and Eminem.

JKell is a soulful R&B singer whose music has a slight taste of Hip-hop to keep you moving your feet while his lyrics find their way to your heart. He has a very unique voice that will have you wanting more of his satisfying flavor of R&B music.

This month on Black Comedy Central, we are remembering one of the funniest comedians that’s ever did it. Robin Harris-Harris is probably best remembered as "Sweet Dick Willie" in Do the Right Thing, "Pops" in House Party, and the brains behind the rowdy animated film Bebe's Kids, which was produced after his death. Those who saw him in comedy clubs will recall the beefy, robust Harris as a master of the put-down and as a man who epitomized middle-class black America. "Robin Harris was the best," comedian Chris Rock, a former regular on late- night television's Saturday Night Live, told the Village Voice. "[He] made saying 'F--- you' an art form."
Our gospel artist for the month is none other than Shekinah Glory Ministry. If you desire to connect with God on another level, this group has been blessed with the gift to lead you there. I am honored to introduce them to you. Shekinah Glory Ministry's ultimate purpose is reflected in the meaning of its name -- to usher listeners into the "very manifest presence of God." Shekinah Glory Ministry (SGM) is not comprised of "recording artists," but servants that worship every Sunday as the praise and worship aggregate of Valley Kingdom Ministries International, a non-denominational church in the Chicago land area where Apostle H. Daniel Wilson serves as Senior Pastor.
On our black television network corner, we are honoring our all of the Jefferson staff for giving us a family show that we surely will remember forever. The Jeffersons, which appeared on CBS television from 1975 to 1985, focused on the lives of a nouveau riche African-American couple, George and Louise Jefferson. George Jefferson was a successful businessman, millionaire and owner of seven dry cleaning stores. He lived with his wife in a ritzy penthouse apartment on Manhattan's fashionable and moneyed East Side. "We're movin' on up!" intoned the musical theme of the show opener that featured George, Louise and a moving van in front of "their de-luxe apartment in the sky."
Our hot new artist of the month is hip hop southern rapper, “Huli Shallone.” He is a hip hop/rap artist that has a diverse style that will someday sell millions. Although his true passion is rap, his main goal is to touch the heart and soul of his many supporters. He performs all types of music for all types of people with hopes to reach people throughout the world.
