GRAND WIZARD THEODORE este recunoscut ca fiind unul dintre cei mai talentati DJ de hip-hop ai tuturor timpurilor. A descoperit pasiunea pentru platane la varsta de 12 ani, mixand alaturi de GRAND MASTER FLASH sau KOOL HERC la celebrele petreceri din Bronx, considerate ca fiind locul de nastere al hiphop-ului. Pe langa talentul de a stapani cele 2 platane, THEODORE este cel care a dus mixing-ul la un alt nivel, la varsta de numai 14 ani transformand pick-up-ul intr-un adevarat instrument muzical printr-o tehnica cunoscuta azi sub denumirea de SCRATCH.
Continua sa faca show-uri alaturi de cei mai mari DJ newyorkezi ai momentului, fiind apreciat pentru atmosfera incendiara pe care o crea la petreceri, tehnicile inovative si incorporarea unor elemente acrobatice care atrageau atentia multimii (mixeaza folosind coatele, picioarele, se leaga la ochi in timpul celor mai complicate rutine, etc). Este vorba despre unul dintre primii DJ care au mixat vreodata la 2 platane.
Alaturi de TUFF CITY CREW, apare si in cel mai important film din istoria hiphopului, celebrul WILD STYLE. Semneaza si coloana sonora a filmului, majoritatea pieselor de pe acest soundtrack fiind inregistrate la el acasa. Astazi, o copie din prima editie a soundtrackului ajunge la preturi astronomice pentru colectionarii de viniluri.
In 2003 apare in filmul SCRATCH, unul dintre cele mai importante documentare muzicale ale acestui deceniu, prezentand procedeul descoperit de el, care a generat in zilele noastre un curent mondial care acum include campionate internationale si are din ce in ce mai multi sustinatori ca gen muzical de sine statator. Atunci cand nu este in turneu, Theodore preda cursuri de DJ-ing la diferite universitati din Statele Unite.

Hip Hop Appreciation Week begins on May 14th 2007 and concludes on May 21st 2007. Hip Hop Appreciation Week began in 1998 as a time set aside every third week in May to acknowledge and appreciate the existence of Hip Hop itself. During this time (May 14th-21st 2007) the Hip Hop community refocuses itself through a collective review and update of its own history and core principles and elements. Principles- peace, love, unity and having fun. Elements- Breakin, Emceein, Graffiti Art, Deejayin, Beat Boxin, Street Fashion, Street Language, Street Knowledge and Street Entrepreneurialism. The idea is to celebrate Hip Hop itself.

During Hip Hop Appreciation Week artists can be asked to give sound advice on what they’ve learned about life and living Hip Hop this year. Schools of all sorts are encouraged to discuss Hip Hop academically and critically amongst its students and teachers. Radio DJs can upgrade their play of “conscious” Rap music over the airwaves and parents can discuss the true meaning and history of Hip Hop with their children. During Hip Hop Appreciation Week the Hip Hop community is encouraged to:

Give the next person the right of way. Allow people to pass you. Do not block a person’s forward movement.

Donate your skill or profession to someone who cannot afford it.

At the supermarket give your change to the person behind you in line.

Be quick to compliment and slow to criticize. Be ready to forgive and move on.

Tithe 10% of your salary this week to your child’s teacher.

Ease a neighbor’s pressure by donating your time toward the assistance of some duty they must undertake. Give of yourself this week.

Let us show our respect for Hip Hop with a sincere respect for one another. Men—support the women in your life. Women—comfort the men in your life. And let us all remain committed to the well-being of our children; they are the reason we do what we do. Love your children. Reserve a special love for them. Give them your time and your attention. Be patient with them. Touch them, hug them, play with them and be sure to teach them, advise them, protect them, discipline them, and most of all LISTEN to them. One of the best ways to teach our children that they are valuable is to value them. Often we must compliment them, point out their special qualities to them, fulfill their prayers, support their legitimate dreams and aspirations and let them know that we are interested in them. They are the future of Hip Hop! The preservation of our children IS the preservation of Hip Hop. HAPPY HIP HOP APPRECIATION WEEK! There it is.
