The legendary DJ, Grandmaster Dee, from Whodini took a quick second to show us how it’s done 🔥. Thanks for coming to the [R]Evolution of Hip Hop “Golden Era” 1986-1990.
Whodini had hit songs like Magic’s wand, Friends, Freaks come out at Night, Five Minutes of Funk and many more. Whodini made Hip Hop sexy and radio friendly. They also played a pivotal role in the first major Rap tours.
RIP Ecstasy 🌹
