This podcast and future documentary by film director and journalist Leila wills ,dives into the alleged sexual abuse of little boys in the Bronx by Afrika Bambatta. Very eye opening and it brings an awareness to the epidemic of child sexual abuse. I’m looking forward to the full documentary. Great work Leila!!💜

The Beginning Chapt: 1 Hip Hop

The documentary covers the Bronx circa 70’s & 80’s including the societal / economical ills in urban American inner city life. The birth /origins of hip hop spotlight documentary on the once Grand King of early hip hop a founding father an icon larger than life. BAMBATTA was respected by many for his ability to halt gang violence in NYC. Furthermore, the parties 🎈 he used to throw, DJ skills , implementation of black pride redirected the youth of the 80’s greatly influencing musical creativity that we know today as hip hop. However, their is a dark side ....... that will be revealed to listeners . I encourage you to listen to artist /people that were there and knew the truth about the legendary BAMBATTA. It’s true what’s done in the dark will come to the light. It’s just a matter of time!!!!! #JUDGEMENTDAY
