This Day in Hip-Hop History

happy bday

Today, October 3rd, we wish a Happy 36th Birthday to Black Star Emcee, Talib Kweli, as well as a Happy 40th Birthday to The Roots Emcee. Today is also the 54th Birthday of one of the most annoying, however popular Radio DJs and Hip-Hop figures, particularly in Europe, Tim Westwood. Today also marks the 20th anniverary of the release of Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black by Public Enemy. Public Enemy’s 4th joint was well recieved, peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200, getting certified platinum for sales of 1 mill. and producing the songs “Shut Em Down” and the Anthrax “Bring the Noise” remix.
