Hip Hop Be Bop

William Waring


William Waring is one of the unsung heroes of hip hop.

He began as a b-boy with long time friends, Kurtis Blow and Danny Harris (RIP), in the Amsterdam Ave/Convent Ave Crew and progressed into writing the lyrics for many old school artists such as The Fat Boys/Disco 3 (Fat Boys), Lovebug Starski (You’ve Gotta Believe), Sweet G (Games People Play), Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde (Fast Life) and of course, Kurtis Blow (Throughout Your Years, Hard Times, Basketball, etc).

I’ve purposely left this biography brief so you can check out Jay Quan’s in-depth interview with William Waring here.
