Napoléon Da Legend
Hip Hop artist born in Paris, France to African immigrants and later migrated to Washington DC, USA.
Brooklyn, New York hip-hop crew Da Dysfunkshunal Familee (a.k.a. Civilized Savages / Armageddon Bodies) consisted of D-Rock, Brain Dead, Amayss, Crazy DJ Bazarro, DJ Primetime, Diverse, Migraine Insane and Rebel Rhyme.
Da Dysfunkshunal Familee had released two records in 1994 and one in 1997 and had guested on the Fondle'em Fossils album on Def Jux records. Apart from those several releases and some elusive demo tapes from the late 80's there was little of their music commercially available.
Da Dysfunkshunal Familee's significance in the New York hip-hop scene should not be underestimated. They had been making Hip Hop music since the late 80's and ran parallel (and often in competition) to Da Beatminerz' produced projects such as Black Moon and Smif-n-Wessun. While Black Moon were recording for Nervous Records, Da Dysfunkshunal Familee were dropping wax independently on Crazy DJ Bazarro's own label using their connections in the NYC music industry to get their voices heard. It is only now that they are getting props they were due 20 years ago.
