KOOL MOE DEE Do You Know What Time it Is LIVE 1988

Its nothing new to readers of The Kool Skool, that Kool Moe Dee is on the all time top 5 favourite MCs on our list. Kool Moe Dee 1st came out as a member of the popular Foundation Group Treacherous 3, alongside Special K, L.A. Sunshine, (his solo recording DJ) Easy Lee.

Return of the Boombap's Interview with Kool Moe Dee breaks down Bee vs Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J vs KMD battle

Treacherous 3 Santa's Rap - Beat Street

"Ho-Ho-Ho, open up the door!"

2 of "the best that ever did it"

Kool Moe, was the 1st complicated Metaphysical MC, he was one of the few Block Party Rappers to take the original B-Boy style, and translate it to Gold & Platinum Plaques, bringing battle styles, Positive messages and "Knowledge, Wisdom & Understanding" to his Lyrics. Deeply involved in the early careers of Bronx MC KRS One, his group B.D.P., and the "Stop The Violence" Movement, and although Kool Moe Dee (alongside West Coast O.G. Ice-T), was involved in high profile battles with LL Cool J, was a defining force linking the Old School and the New School. 

“For me, I don’t play into that,” explained the rapper. “We let the nuance dictate to the essence [where] up is down; down is up. Who spread the memo around the ’hood that being dumb was cool? That’s part of the reason I named myself ‘Kool’ — how is it intelligence, doing your homework and knowing your lessons not be cool?” - Kool Moe Dee from HERE

Kool Moe Dee Feat. Chuck D & KRS-One - Rise And Shine
Album "Funke Funke Wisdom" 1991 
"Each One Teach One" Chuck D This video is an example of his attempt to unify the Foundation Block Party Artists like Whodini, Doug E Fresh, with the newer School Artists, Run DMC, Tribe Called Quest, Red Head King Pin, Grand Daddy I.U., D-Nice
"Holdin' my mic like the staff of Ra, Brining true light after dark" - KMD

Kool Moe Dee - Death Blow (LL Cool J Diss)

1st "God On The Mic"
KMD in his Iconic African Crown - "African Proud"
Many of his hit records were produced by Teddy Riley, an upcoming Super Producer credited by many of creating the fast New Jack Swing R&B style genre. At the time it was a wise choice, as the Producer was an untouchable hit maker, but unfortunately as the new school harder Production style of The 45 King, Marley Marl, Herb Luv Bug etc, would dictate the future of Hip-Hop, too many younger listeners, Kool Moe's commercial production choices sounded too dated and pop orientated.

Kool Moe Dee performs and discusses his craft at O, Miami's panel discussion of Yale UP's The Anthology of Rap at the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center on Miami Beach, Thursday, April 28, 2011. O, Miami is a production of University of Wynwood, in partnership with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

He has many released several solo albums, has appeared in many films and a released a book on the Art of MCing, one of the 1st to look at Rap as a serious Artform. His list of 1sts are long, and his influence and impact on Hip-Hop is sadly under represented in modern "Rap History" annuls, but its safe to say, his early influence on legendary Lyricists Kool Kieth, Rakim, Ice-T, Nas and even the blending of smooth styling & 5% knowledge of Big Daddy Kane are evident.
