Every James Brown cut makes a party get crazy. He’s the God of all music. I always play different wild remixes of his songs because people start bugging out when they realise what I’m playing.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) You have to look at the fact that Hip Hop is under attack. It’s not just Hip Hop but Black people, Latino people and all people are under attack for different things.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) The Universal Zulu Nation stands to acknowledge wisdom, understanding, freedom, justice, and equality, peace, unity, love, and having fun, work, overcoming the negative through the positive, science, mathematics, faith, facts, and the wonders of God, whether we call him Allah, Jehovah, Yahweh, or Jah  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) Hip-hop has been hijacked by a Luciferian conspiracy. People have used hip-hop in a lot of ways that cause a lot of mind problems. They use the word wrongfully. They use it to mean a part instead of a whole  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) A lot of times, when people say hip-hop, they don’t know what they’re talking about. They just think of the rappers. When you talk about hip-hop, you’re talking about the whole culture and movement. You have to take the whole culture for what it is  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) You want to buy cars and houses and castles, all of that’s on you and how America has systematized your mind to be into materialism. Hip-hop ain’t got nothing to do with that. I’m glad that anybody making money has picked themselves up - I just want them to give some of it back to the community  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) I’m fanatical about movies: African, European, Viking, Roman. I got into witchcraft and magic from watching ‘Bewitched’ and ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ which shows in some of my outfits. I dress to reflect the whole spectrum of the universe  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) I don’t care if it’s rap, metal, whatever. You still should play Beatles records mixed with Limp Bizkit mixed with Foghat mixed with Creedence Clearwater Revival, stuff like that  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) Well, a lot of people within government and big business are nervous of Hip Hop and Hip Hop artists, because they speak their minds. They talk about what they see and what they feel and what they know. They reflect what’s around them  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) A lot of times you can lose the MP3s - it’s a lot of labor to be finding it again, putting things back up. You gotta back up, back up, back up.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) Everybody needs to show respect to each others’ ways and the cultural life that you get on this planet. Don’t get caught up on ‘I’m brown, black, white, red, blue, whatever.’ You gotta ask, what were you called before 1492? All these names we’re using now are just an illusion made to keep us fighting each other.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) What worries me are these so-called radio stations with program directors who don’t play all the different flavors of hip-hop. They should play the old with the new, 24/7, 365 days a year. A lot of these program directors are just jiving around and not playing all the good music for the people.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) I’ve got headdresses and robes from all over: I am the mystery of everybody’s story  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) They’re keeping friction going between people from the East and the West. One thing we all got in common is your color, which is Black and Latino, which is our family.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) We also want to try and slow down all this foolishness that’s going on between the East and West. We gotta understand that Hip Hop is now universal. Hip Hop is not East coast or West coast.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) We want you to sit down and leave your egos at home and let’s get an understanding as to where all this is foolishness coming from. There are others who are putting things out there or throwing a stick and hiding their hand and keeping things built up in the media.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) The thing that’s good about Hip Hop is that it has experimented with a lot of different sounds and music.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) My definition of hip hop is taking elements from many other spheres of music to make hip hop. Whether it be breakbeat, whether it be the groove and grunt of James Brown or the pickle-pop sounds of Kraftwerk or Yellow Magic Orchestra, hip hop is also part of what they call hip-house now, or trip hop, or even parts of drum n’ bass.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) All music is dance music. But when people think of dance music, they think of techno or just house. Anything you can dance to is dance music. I don’t care if it’s classical, funk, salsa, reggae, calypso; it’s all dance music.  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) They allow us to disrespect our Black woman. A lot of these things would be considered criminal if it were to be carried out in the streets. That’s like when they tell you after you buy your VHS and you rent movies they tell you not to copy the movies  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) There’s a lot of people over time who have brought out all these funky records that everybody has started jumping on like a catch phrase... When Planet Rock came out, then you had all of the electro funk records  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) I wear anything of culture, from the Earth or beyond. The whole planet is my shop  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) Actually freestyle really comes from ‘Planet Rock’. If you listen to all the freestyle records you’ll hear that they are based on ‘Planet Rock’. All the Miami Bass records are based upon Planet Rock  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) How you act, walk, look and talk is all part of Hip Hop culture. And the music is colorless. Hip Hop music is made from Black, brown, yellow, red and white  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) I am one of the founders of Hip-Hop along with my brothers Kool DJ Herc and Grandmaster Flash  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) I knew that as a DJ from 1970 on up that I would eventually come with this sound. I brought out all these other break beats that you hear so much on a lot of these records  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) The thing that’s good about Hip Hop is that it has experimented with a lot of different sounds and music  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) They’re keeping friction going between people from the East and the West. One thing we all got in common is your color, which is Black and Latino, which is our family  (Afrika Bambaataa Quotes) Since the pharmaceuticals don’t make any money and they control the doctors.
