Grandmaster Caz (in the blue Yankee hat above) turns 56 today. Caz is noted by many MC’s as not only one of the greats, but arguably the greatest of all time. Caz is definitely the blueprint for what MC’ing would become after the pre-rap record era. As a member of The Cold Crush Brothers, Caz was the favorite MC of many of your favorite MC’s before they became MC’s, follow me? We all know the Sugarhill fiasco, I’ll leave that be. Trust when I tell you that this 56 year old man is still a BEAST with the lyrics. Don’t believe me? Check out Ice-T’s documentary “The Art Of Rap” and get back to me. Caz now hosts tours in the South Bronx for tourists from all over the world who want to see where hip-hop was born. Salute one of the nicest ever to touch a microphone. Born April 18th, 1961.
