When The World’s Famous Supreme Team first hit the scene Hip-Hop Music was in its infancy. There was no 50 Cent, no Jay-Z, even the legendary Run DMC hadn’t started making music. But World’s Famous were more than just originators, they were pioneers.
They were the first to take Hip-Hop out of America and into the international community.
Through the Radio network WHBI-FM and later WBLS, everyday World’s Famous broadcasted a daily Hip-Hop show that would eventually make them Legendary. The shows, which to date enamor the old school Hip-Hop connoisseurs with memories of New York in the early 80’s, eventually caught the attention of a young Englishman looking for a new sound.
That man was Malcolm McLaren, and he would later fly World’s Famous to England and help etch their name in music history.
