Kid ‘n Play Explains Cleverly Opening Up for N.W.A. & its Benefit of Every Rap Artist Ever

Kid ‘n Play talk NWA, Public Enemy hip-hop show controversy, and how they opened doors for the entire culture of rap music. While fans may think they were just a dancing duo from Queens, Kid ‘n Play had some of the most well-respected people in the streets representing them.

From Play being heavily in the streets before the start of their group in the late ‘80s, Kid recently shared a tale that may have went over the heads of many. Before N.W.A., no other group presenting “Gangster Rap” to the masses was allowed to perform in large arenas.

However, Kid ‘n Play were tapped to open for the Los Angeles super-group, which promoters and venue holders felt more comfortable with a balance of party involved. This essentially opened the door for every musician in hip-hop history to have a chance to use future venues.

In recent years, with new age of streaming content, live shows have been the main source income for the non-top five percent of rappers. This has been serious during quarantine times, as most have moved to Atlanta, Houston and Florida to recoup some of the money they’ve lost.
