Breaking Bread With Kurtis Blow

An old-school hip-hop legend gets right with God

Praise the Lord and pass the McDonald's.
Willie Davis
Praise the Lord and pass the McDonald's.

Only 49 years old, Blow is half a lifetime away from the demise of his celebrity, which he has handled with surprising aplomb. Unlike many of his fellow founding fathers, he bears neither bitterness nor delusional beliefs of a comeback. He insists he has no use for another hit record: "I have enough!" 'The Breaks' was enough to last a lifetime. Two or three even. It was hip-hop's first certified gold rap song. I have the first plaque. I made history when I was 21. Praise the Lord." This could be Soulja Boy in 25 years.
