Kurtis Blow Song List
Kurtis Blow was born Kurt Walker in 1959. Blow went on to become one of the earliest and most successful rappers in the 1980’s, becoming one of the first to sign with a major record label and perform overseas. Kurtis Blow’s releases on the Mercury label include: Kurtis Blow (1980), Deuce (1981), Tough (1982), The Best Rapper on the Scene (1983), Ego Trip (1984), America (1985), Kingdom Blow (1986), and Back by Popular Demand (1988.)
By the early 1990’s, Blow had turned his attention to production, and he created a number of hits for other artists, including Run DMC, Wyclef Jean, The Fat Boys, Russell Simmons, and Full Force, to name a few. He has also contributed music to a number of films, including Krush Groove and Cry of the City. His historic contributions to the burgeoning genre of rap at its earliest start have left to his near iconic status in popular culture. Kurtis Blow has been referenced in music by such notable artists as Ice Cube, They Might be Giants, Faithless, 2Pac, and Jay-Z; on the sitcoms Everybody Hates Chris and Martin; and in the film Notorious.
In addition to his work in music, Kurtis Blow is an ordained minister and teaches ministry classes, having founded the Hip Hop Church in the new millennium. He has also been an outspoken critic on innumerous issues of race and racism, contributing to the Artists Against Apartheid movement and working alongside Al Sharpton for his Action Network.
