1. Busy Bee Starski aka Busy Bee (b. 1950s) is an old school hip-hop master of ceremonies.
First coming on the scene in 1977, New York-based Busy Bee worked with many of hip-hop's founding fathers, including Melle Mel, Afrika Bambaataa, and Kool DJ AJ.
Born David Parker and known for his comedic rhymes, he originally gained a large following through MC battles in Staten Island, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. He was famously roasted by Kool Moe Dee at Harlem World in Manhattan, New York, December 1981, in one of the earliest documented freestyle battles. In 1986, he won the New Music Seminar's MC World Supremacy Belt. In the early 1980s Afrika Bambaataa asked him to join his Zulu Nation where the young MC would DJ for Bambaataa's Zulu Nation parties.
Busy Bee continues to rhyme today, most recently appearing on KRS-One and Marley Marl's collaborative 2007 album, Hip-Hop Lives.
