- Tupac Shakur...stickin wit this
- G Dubb
KRS' debuted in 1984 with Scott La Rock and the Celebrity Three
. The name was eventually changed to Boogie Down Crew. His first solo release
was in 1987.(Criminal Minded 1987)
He's considered a veteran/originator.
2Pac is one of the most charismatic artists Hip Hop had ever seen but he was far from a vet/originator. He would be considered a 2nd generation rapper
the success of rappers like KRS, Kool Herc and Big Daddy Kane. 2nd Generation artists are typically considered artists who came to
the forefront of rap during the 90's riding the train the originators laid the tracks for.
The Alchemist isn't considered an old school originator either. He was first introduced in 1993. His beats are fire but that doesn't mean he's a
vet. The Wooligans don't count.
G Dubb is a nice beatmaker but once again...not a vet.
If you can provide data that shows G Dubb and The Alchemist are prominent originators of the early Hip Hop movement I'd be happy to review it.
