Funk 4 Peace with Afrika Bambaataa


Editorial Review

Afrika Bambaataa already talked to the Post about Barack Obama's secret service name ("Renegade") being related to one of Bambaataa's early electro-hip-hop anthems, "Renegades of Funk," and you might get to hear it at the appropriately titled Funk 4 Peace Inaugural Ball at Modern tonight. The Bronx-raised DJ, a godfather of the early hip-hop scene, teams with locals Fort Knox Five.
