Called "the godfather of hip hop", Afrika Bambaataa created electro funk and is one of the driving forces behind early rap music. Whereas Kool DJ Herc and DJ Hollywood are the earliest hip hop DJs (although Hollywood was more of a disco DJ, he influenced Kurtis Blow and many others), it wasGrandmaster Flash and Bambaataa who together founded the Zulu Nation and recorded some of the most important early rap/hip hop.
