Legendary Kevin Smith, a.k.a. Lovebug Starski the Bronx DJ and rapper who is often credited with coining the term “hip-hop,” past away at 57 in Las Vegas. Starski was among a core group of DJ pioneers, including DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash and Grand Wizard Theodore, who shaped hip-hop’s parameters in the days before recorded rap in the 1970s. Known for peppering his sets with chants and catchphrases like “make money money, make money money money,” Smith helped define the school of deejaying that would come to be known as “party rocking.” via Rolling Stone official website. Rest in Peace Lovebug Starski.
