The Universal Zulu Nation
Peace, Love, Unity and Having Fun
The Zulu Kings were 5 B-boys which Bambaataa took under his wing and soon many other writers, MCs, B-boys and B-girls and DJs followed.
Four pillars - MCing, DJing, Breaking and Writing
The Zulu Nation was a melting pot for different gang members who desired to straighten out their lifes.
Rapping, tagging and writing, DJing as well as dancing provided alternative ways to release anger
and pain which many experienced in times of violence and urban decay.
They organized block parties as well as breaking and freestyle rap battles in order to unite the community.
The members of the Zulu Nation include:
DJ Kool Herc, Fab Five Freddy, Kurtis Blow, Ice-T, Ice Cube
Jam Master Jay, Phife Dawg, Q-Tip and Joeystarr
Due to accusations of sexual abuse against Afrika Bambaataa the Zulu Nation
has voiced there sincerest apologies to the possible victims and distanced itself from its founder.
In May 2016 they officially declared that Afrika Bambaataa
is no longer affiliated with the Zulu Nation.
