    1) The music of course.

    2) Writers block happens to a lot of us..When it happens, just keep on writing even if it seems lame as hell. You'll come up with something good eventually.

    3) No idea, honestly. My knowledge of DJ's is somewhat limited.

    4) When they're 40 and the only reason they're still making songs is to remain relevant.

    5) I'd say Kool Herc considering the fact he created the genre.

  • 1) Emceeing because I'm a poet and breakdancing because I trained as a dancer.

    2) I don't rap, but I've had writer's block plenty of times. Best thing to do is step away from it for a little while then come back and just write anything. Lists are usually a good start. Write a grocery list or something - anything, then just see where it takes you. It sounds stupid, but it works.

    3) Q-Bert. And Roc Raida (RIP)

    4) When they've lost the hunger and it shows in their music.

    5) I'd have to say Kool Herc - we wouldn't even have hip hop if it wasn't for him. The influence of The Zulu Nation has been huge, but without Herc, they'd have had no reason to exist.

    6) K-The-I??? - Man or Machine

    Buy or Sell Jay-z didn't get a huge amount of recognition outside of hip hop until he got with beyonce Sell because he got more recognition once him did the mash up cd with Linkin Park.
