Zulu Kings

THE ZULU KINGZ WERE CREATED ON THE SAME DAY ZULU NATION, NOVEMBER 12 1973, AND THEY WERE TO BE THE OFFICIAL BBOY CREW FOR THE ZULU NATION. THIS CONCEPT CAME ABOUT SINCE THE FIVE BROTHERS WHO HELPED AFRIKA BAMBAATAA ORGANIZE THE ZULU NATION, WERE ALL BBOYS! THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF THE ZULU KINGZ ARE AS FOLLOWED:

AHMED HENDERSON, AZIZ JACKSON , SHAKA REED, KUSA STOKES, & ZAMBU LANER.

AS TIME WENT ON ZULU KINGZ BECAME BIGGER. ONE OF THE FIRST 3 BBOYS TO GET GHETTO CELEBRITY STATUS WAS BEAVER FROM THE ZULU KINGZ. OTHER EARLY MEMBERS INCLUDE:

ROBBIE ROB, AFRIKA ISLAM, JAZZY JAY, POW WOW, SUNDANCE. and CHARLIE CHASE
(FIRST 11)

AS THE YEARS WENT BY, ALL THE ORIGINAL ZULU KINGZ STARTED TO FADE, ISLAM STARTED TO DJ AS WELL AS JAZZY JAY, POW WOW. BIGGS & POW WOW BECAME THE SOULSONIC FORCE, WHILE TROUBLE AND SUNDANCE MAINTAINED CHAPTER 2 OF THE ZULU NATION, AND OF COURSE BBOY WAS GETTING “PLAYED OUT” BY 1979.

BY 1981 BBOYING HAD NEW LIFE IN THE FORM OF THE ROCK STEADY CREW. RSC WERE PART OF THE FIRST HIP HOP TOUR AND WERE GIVEN THE HONOR OF CARRYING THE TRADITION OF ZULU NATION HAVING A TIGHT BBOY SQUAD BUT THIS TIME “BOOGIE BOYS” WERE ALSO INCLUDED. RSC WERE THE LAST BBOY CREW TO REPRESENT ZULU KINGZ UNTIL OCTOBER OF THE YEAR 2000, WHEN AFRIKA BAMBAATA DECIDED TO GIVE ALIEN NESS THE HONOR OF RESURECTING THE LEGENDARY CREW BY ADDING NEW, YOUNGER MEMBERS TO REP FOR BAMBAATAA. ALIEN NESS HAD A VISION TO NOT ONLY INCLUDE DANCERS, BUT TO MAKE IT A HIP HOP ORGINIZATION THAT WILL BOAST THE BEST DANCERS, DJ.S, MC’S, PRODUCERS AND PROMOTERS WORLD WIDE.

ZULU KINGZ MISSION STATEMENT: TO UPHOLD AND MAINTAIN THE TRUE ESSENCE OF AFRIKAS BAMBAATAA’S VISION.
