Another Man Comes Forward Against Afrika Bambaataa


Earlier this month the Hip Hop community was rocked after Bronx resident Ronald Savage came forward with shocking claims that he had been sexually molested by Afrika Bambaataa while working as a 'crate boy' carrying records for the Zulu Nation hip hop collective back in the 80s [click here if you missed that].

Not long after Ronald's confession another man came forward with similar claims [click here if you missed that], and now there's another victim who confirms the molestation was VERY widespread....


The latest victim claims he was too was sexually molested by Afrika Bambaataa and that Bambaataa showed him polaroid pictures of members of the Zulu Nation holding their genitals along with pictures of boys he knew from the neighborhood.

Some of the pictures were of the men by themselves and some of them were pictures of the men with the neighborhood boys also with their genitals in their hands.

NY Radio DJ Star interviews the latest person to come forward on The Star Chamber.

That's it! I'm officially mad as hell; Take the entire Zulu Nation to civil court and make each and every one of them testify under oath. I feel terrible for the alleged victims because for years they probably felt they were the "only ones." Imagine the shame and sadness they feel. If we didn't have enough to worry about, Black boys and their mothers have to worry about child rapists at church and at hip-hop events, too. And the saddest part about this is that these young men turned to the Zulu Nation for a sense of community, and were totally taken advantage of. I'm sick to my stomach!

I bet the abuse was widespread and pervasive and speaks to how depraved the record industry really is, no matter the genre.

This is just the beginning and as someone said, this will be Hip-Hop's "Cosby Moment."

This explains why KRS-ONE always got weird and defensive when asked about Bambatta like "I don't deal with the Zulu Nation."

Pedophilia is not strange for satanists. This has nothing to do with gay/straight. From music, fashion, finances, to politics. These satanist are all in position of power. Open your eyes people. Oh and they come in all colors.

This is so heartbreaking. These poor young young men. This is not right!
I'm now wondering if Afrika Baby Bam (from the Jungle Brothers) was also a victim. http://www.soulbounce.com/soul/2008/03/what_is_really_going_on_with_dude_from_the_jungle_brothers/

Has Q-tip spoken on these allegations?

@9:52 I wouldn't say that it was all on the Music Industry. The Members of the Zulu Nation are responsible...for doing what was done, knowing and letting it continue, and not doing anything.

MEN holding their genitals is an ancient African tribal rite of passage that usher boys into men. If one is familar with the hip hop vernacular "hold your shorty" or "letting your balls hang",it's implying standing up for yourself and not letting them them see you sweat.Euro centric judgement would consider this molestation but it.is.not!!!!!!!

Classic pedophile leaving a trail of victims in his wake. And it only took ONE person to speak about it to get other people to speak out. Folks if you know someone is a pedo SPEAK on it and stop the shit in its tracks.

Couldn't have said it any better @9:51am. My hearts weeps for the men taken advantage of in search of a positive male role model back then and this is what they got. What a tragedy. This is such a disgrace and so sad.

10:37am there are tribal rituals that also sodomize young boys and have them drink semen for "strength" and initiation into manhood. But I guess "Euro" standards have us brainwashed that this is wrong, too? And go figure--- Bambatta went to Africa as a youth and was probably initiated. Hence the tribal gear and the fact that he looks soulless in all his pics while throwing up the baphomet and other Masonic hand signs. Smh

11:32, I concur pedophiles truly sicken me. The laws need to be tougher like I am all for castration when it comes to molestation and rapes.

Jacque Carter said...

That is the problem no parents around mainly no father's. This is what happens when the Black Family is destroyed.It opens up the flood gated to all types of shit. Bambaataa was probably
touched so he was doing what he knew. Sad case all around

Anonymous said...

@12:18 I agree that Perversion is all over the Industry. But it didn't start or end there. Is all I'm trying to say. Being a victim or child molestation. I know all too well that shame and guilt that you have inside. And also the fear that you carry

It's a Frantic...
Situation.

Hip Hop heads will get this, however, my hear bleeds for these men. They sound extremely broken and disturbed..rightfully so. All that can be done is to pray for forgiveness and healing on both ends.

1:35PM...I wholeheartedly agree. I was a teen when this dude was out rapping making all us youngsters wanna be apart of Africa... wearing medallions, b-boy b-girl stance...break dancing, etc. This just messed up that memory.

I am wondering what grand master flash, melly mel, x clan and all of the rest of the pioneers are thinking.

People don't realize this, but men screwing other men is a ritual that one needs to engage in to be involved in, in order to be accepted in the entertainment industry, Especially the music industry. In addition, a blood sacrifice of some1 close to you is
also required.
A guy explained ALL OF THIS TO ME IN 1997. I thought he was full of crap, especially when he said he was taken into a dark room where other ppl, men & women were chanting their thanks to Satan, & they had on strange costumes.
Now I think about EVERYTHING this guy said, & wish I would've recorded him. He was DONE once he went into that room where the ppl were chanting..he said he never wanted anything to do with the music industry ever again.
I believe that tons of guys will now come forward & speak about these perverts!! Unfortunately, we're about to find out about a LOT of pedophiles in hip hop that we didn't know about, or ever suspect.I believe that most of the current record execs are pedophiles.
I always said, when you see an artist who you KNOW has superstar qualities appear on the scene, & then they disappear all of a sudden, that's an indication that something seriously untoward is going on..mark my words.There is about to be a pedophile firestorm.Bambuttfunk is JUST THE BEGINNING!!!

@2:36pm - That is SO weird you're bringing this up. I use to sing back-up for a party/wedding band and our drummer was FIRE. Everyone always asked him why he never went West to become a session musician, etc.

After practice once the bassist, drummer and I were just sitting around talking, and we brought it up again. He got really serious and said that he tried it in the late 90's. He had some friends out there who said he could sleep on their sofa while he went out shopping his demo and auditioning. He said the things he saw in his 6 months there were things he'd hope he'd never see again. That all of LA had a bad vibe (and this was a well-traveled Navy vet so he wasn't afraid to travel) and that what they wanted him to do wasn't worth it. It was made clear he'd have to compromise himself in ways he'd never be able to live with, so he bounced. Other people in the same circuit whom he wouldn't name became famous...We pressed him on it still thinking he was exaggerating, but he got even more serious and asked us to never ask about it again; We never brought it up again.

I wish this were not true and I was making it up, but the look on his face said it all. I look at celebrities with the side-eye since then.

...I was molested in 5th grade. I believe those guys. The crazy part was that it was by my married neighbor. Stop asking where the parents are because of my parents would've known he would've been dead buried and lost. Child molesters are folks yall take for granted. Some of yall kids have possibly been molested but haven't told you. My parents still don't know.

Anonymous said...

3:19 - I am so sorry that happened to you, but keep telling your story. Most molestation happens after years of grooming both the parents and the children re: forming close bonds and gaining trust. Stay in prayer/meditation and break those evil bonds. They have NO power over you on in your life.

And see what 10:13, 12:13, 2:36, 2:53, and countless others have said. This thing is deeper than what it looks like on the surface. This is NOT a flesh and blood battle, but a war with wickedness in high places. Whatever your spiritual practices, I hope you've found peace. Blessings to you and your house. Be well.

At least Professor Griff is on Twitter calling for an "open discussion" about this...Where is the rest of old school hip-hop?

@10:13am I wish you and others would quit insisting on gay "innocence" in this matter. The gay agenda has EVERYTHING to do with this shit! There is a reason the gay agenda is intent on brainwashing the world that there is nothing wrong with being gay-----this is exactly what perverts like Sandusky, Bamboozler, etc tell their victims. That its natural, that it's normal, etc they will show the victims gay pics, gay porn----this is exactly the message that FAGS send to the youth, they just do it in a more subtle, sneaky manner i.e.: thru media, music and hip hop. So stop trying to absolve yourselves of this fuckery by blaming pedophiles, satanists, God----you are FOOT SOLDIERS in this madness and perversion and you know it! Majority of gays love fresh young men and "boys" and this is why they target the youth. Satanists LOVE homosexuality and gays are Satan's little bitches.

Anonymous said...

@4:41

You are right that Satan targets through the youth, that's how they change cultures. HOWEVER, speaking as someone who knows a few gay men personally, NONE of them are pedophiles. The mere thought of that would drive them up the wall like it would you or I. Gay people are just that, PEOPLE. Satan can dwell in any of us or in any entity. Peace.

Anonymous said...

And also I think the point 10:13 was making is that gay/straight doesn't matter because these people often live double lives so their sexual identity is irrelevant. Sandusky led a public life as a STRAIGHT man married to a woman and all. Didn't matter because he was still screwing young boys behind closed doors. I don't know what Bambataa identifies as, but does it really matter knowing what we know now?

Anonymous said...

5:23pm and 5:29 please cut it out. Plenty of gay men marry women and plenty live their lives as straight men. Men who molest young boys and convince them that nothing is wrong with being gay are NOT STRAIGHT MEN, please stop it! Men who prey on other males are not straight doesn't matter how many women they sleep with or marry. Furthermore are you with your gay friends 24/7? Do you have access to their computers? Are you with them when they hit up after hours gay clubs? How can you swear for them? How do you know who is in their body count? Gay ppl are ppl just like pedophiles, transgenders and those who sleep with animals too, so what is your point?

Anonymous said...

Yes Satan can dwell in all of us that is also not the point here. We are speaking of the hippocracy of gays and how they like to distance themselves from situations like this---men who prey on underage boys are still GAY, please don't just write this off as simply pedophilia or satanism. Like I said before, boy lovers are very effective in convincing their victims that being gay or having sex with men is normal and perfectly natural thus fulfilling the gay agenda.

Let's keep our focus on the alleged victims who need our support. Bigger issue: Who besides Griff is going to hold Zulu Nation accountable? Seriously, y'all, instead of being emotional, let's take action to try to prevent/address this issue

Anonymous said...

@5:51

My point is that gay people aren't the problem like you seem to think. Sandusky is a PEDOPHILE, not a gay or straight man. You seem to think its all the same when it isn't. Are you a Christian? If you are I understand why you view gay men in the same vein as pedophiles. In actuality they are not the same thing. And no I don't follow any of these men's every move as that isn't possible. That doesn't make them guilty of anything. My issue is with people who take advantage of CHILDREN, not consenting adults having sex with each other. Your issue is obviously with gay men on the whole which is fine.

A man having sexual relations with an underage boy is a homosexual pedophile.

A man having sexual relations with an underage girl is just a pedophile.

Wtf are you even talking about @8:00?

^^^^^2:45. THANK YOU! This is the truth!

what is done in the dark always comes to light. Hip-hop has always been homosexual. Homosexuality is perversion and an abomination. Once you step into perversion it will take over. im not saying every homosexual is or will become a pedophile. Not every molested person becomes a molester. But homosexuality is not Gods plan. It's a spirit that comes in due to the sin nature, sexual immorality, fornication. Cue the angry retorts now... Hip hop has been for a long time a boys club that objectifies women and promotes SELF over God. Sadly none of this suprises me.
