We'd like to thank "KOOL DJ RED ALERT" for all his years of service & bringing us many hours of joy while we leaned over the boom box waiting for him to break that next big record. We're also grateful for the role he played over these 35 years in helping build the foundation for HIP HOP & the culture as we know it. In the words of the Blast Master himself, "Rap is something you do, Hip Hop is something you live." Nobody has lived Hip Hop more than DJ Red Alert. We salute you.....
