Happy birthday to Manhattan native and rap luminary Kool Moe Dee, who celebrates his 50th today. Even though days have passed since he was rocking with the Treacherous Three in the early ’80s, Moe Dee still stands as one of the greats, hailing as one of the first rappers to earn a Grammy Award and, even more, for the legendary battles with then nemesis LL Cool J. In his honor, we suggest checking his VH1 Unsung episode and the clip from the Beef series just to make note of how his battle with Chief Rocker Busy Bee basically changed battling forever.
