PIONEERS OF 805 HIP HOP

Updated 9/30/15

There are few people that know about the history of 805 Hip Hop. There are few people that knew hip hop existed in the 805 back in the day. Well, it did and it was the freshest thing to hit the streets. Skating Plus was one of the settings for  several battles and clashes some in  the 805. When Club Nicholby’s was  Zenon West, Mogg’s, and The Starlight Club was on hit.  When B-Boys wore Phat laces and carried cardboard and Boom Boxes like value packs. From Hueneme to Oxnard, Ventura, Santa Barbara to Filmore the scene was dope. What made the Hip Hop scene the way around the 80’s era when it began  were the people and the events that occurred.  The elements of Hip Hop; DJ’s, Emcee’s, B-Boys, Breakdancers, and the Graffiti artist. Throughout the county, these people will be recognized as Pioneers of 805 Hip Hop. They paved the path by their contributions to the culture by representing the way they knew how, as  805 individuals. This page is dedicated to those who did their thang and some still doing it. For  those who don’t know, now you know!

There were and are still so many names, crews, and events to account for. These entries have been brought over from our original 805 HipHop.Com website that started up in 1995. We want to build this list! Most names on the Pioneers list will need to be PRE YEAR 2000.

So if there are names, crews, events, etc. that to be included. Be sure to send us their Name , City, and what they did for the 805 Hip-Hop Scene back in the day. Include the year if possible. Names will be posted to this page.

Be Proud Of 805 Hip-Hop!!

DJ Wizz (Cedric Adams now in Oregan) was part of the Music Masters (Owner-Xavier Murrietta) who put on the never forgotten show at the Elks club where Arabian Prince, Egyptian Lover and the World Class Wreckin Crew performed. I was there so if you remember, a fight broke out after Egyptian Lover performed and the Wrecking Crew had to come back for a second show. The Music Masters was also the home DJ crew for Rick Roc. I know first hand because I borrowed that TR 909 that you spoke about and created a few jams back then myself (Backyard Rangers can concur). I didn’t know that he passed away. This was the first that I heard about it.
