Hip Hop legend, Doug E Fresh, checked in with Nick Cannon Mornings to discuss the lost meaning of the MC, his upcoming Go-Go documentary, still living in Harlem, health & wellness in the black community, and more.
When asked about being a pioneer in the MC game, the Harlem legend tells Nick. “You were saying something about the greatest MC’s, that’s what makes an MC. People lost the description of what an MC really represents. You see, an MC is not just a guy who says rhymes. MC was the Master of Ceremony. And when you can take people through levels, you host shows, you be DJ’n, you be on the mic hyping it up and at the same time you rhyming. So to me, if I need somebody to turn it up, I’m calling you! You’re not a one-trick pony.”
Dougie then tells Nick how impressed he was with this “I Can’t Breathe” campaign and how important it is to the movement. He says; “When I first saw it, I automatically said everyone needs to see this, because it was a Masterpiece and it was timely you know. It couldn’t be a better timely message. It was RIGHT ON TIME, it’s crazy to me.”
