He would perform with Bob Marley, Grandmaster Flash He would have management, knowledge in the business Other MCs were better but Kurtis would be getting paid because of his knowledge and his charisma Russell Simmons managed Kurtis Blow, while being a promoter. Kurtis Blow – If I Ruled The World LISTNED IN CLASS o There’s also a Nas version, also listened in class (NOT ON SONGLIST)

This song exposed Kurtis Blow as a weak rapper, his rapping wasn’t very impressive, it contributed to his fading out Kurtis Blow – Basketball listened in class o Bow Wow – Basketball version also listened in class (NOT ON SONGLIST) Kurtis blow popular because of the time, entered the door at the right time, b/c there weren’t a lot of rappers at that time. Despite his lacking skill, he still has management skills (help of Russell Simmons) It was clear that it wasn’t Kurtis Blow’s calling of rapping When hiphop was being popularized and faded out. His final comeback attempt to be in the business again with song called “Back by Popular Demand” but there was no demand lol He would come back not as a rapper but as an producer now. Kurtis was Hip hop pioneer, historian o However he rap skill wasn’t evolving
