Afrika Islam

Afrika Islam is a hip hop pioneer, also known as the "Son of Bambaataa", i.e. Afrika Bambaataa. He left NY for LA and went on to co-produce most of Ice Ts early albums, namely "Rhyme Pays" and "Power"; the latter is deemed to be Ice's finest effort by some aficionados. In the late 1990s, Afrika Islam joined German techno icon Westbam[?] to form Mr. X and Mr. Y[?], a techno duo that made commercial techno with electro funk influences. "Back to Berlin" quotes from the Old School rap classic "New York New York" by Grandmaster Flash.
