Hip Hop Originated from Grandmaster Flowers, D.J. Hollywood, Kool Herc, Coke la Rock, and Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation in Brooklyn, Queens and the Boogie Down Bronx to not mention these people, as far as hip hop is concerned, is disrespectful to the culture itself.
Well, as far as Harlem is concerned, to not mention the Magnificent Seven, M.C.’s Rayvon, Johnny Wa, E-Man, DJ’s Spivey, Shoeshine, Kookie and Tystic, its equally disrespectful to Hip Hop and the Hip Hop culture.
They ran Harlem and Harlem World in particular.
The Magnificent Seven are for Harlem what D.J. Kool Herc, Coke La Rock, and Melle Mel are to the Bronx.
Johnny Wa (John Watson)
MC Rayvon Weaver
DJ Kookie (Roosevelt Ginyard)
Rayvon and Johnny were the lead members of the crew.
Back in those days, they used to party and battle with any occasion they`ve got.
Along with that, they used to sell drugs until they got busted by some undercover cops with marked money.
Everybody got in jail that night.
It was the beginning of the end for The Magnificent Seven.
From 1980 until they went to jail, they didn’t lost any single battle.
The biggest problem of the M7 was that they were not for the business part of it because they were drug sellers.
They didn’t care about getting paid for the Hip Hop parties. They did it because they loved to m.c.
In 2007, DJ Kookie (founding member) died.
