Tone Love of Tuff Crew

Tuff Crew edit

Tuff Crew, composed of Ice Dog, L. A. Kid, Monty G, Tone Love, and DJ Too Tuff, is a hip hop group from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, dubbed “Philly’s first Rap Supergroup”. They released four albums. Their debut LP included production by the Ultramagnetic MCs’ Kool Keith and Ced Gee, with a style that was bass-heavy with Roland TR-808 drum machine, raw “street” lyrics and aggressive scratch DJing. They performed with Public Enemy, Run-DMC, Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock, LL Cool J, and many others.

They toured the U.S.A as the support act for 2Live Crew, and were fan favorites on the groundbreaking Street Beat radio program on Power 99, hosted by Lady B. They were racially mixed and ethnically diverse, and were regular performers at the After Midnight club in North Philly, once the largest Hip-Hop club in America. Their contemporaries included Dj Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Dj Cash Money and Marvelous, Cool C, Schooly D and Three Times Dope. DJ Too Tuff, a/k/a the Deuce Ace Detonator, is considered a forefather of the turntablist movement, because of several dynamic DJ tracks on the group’s albums. Dj Z-Trip, DJ Shadow and other New School DJs credit DJ Too Tuff for inspiring their style and music.

Repost... @mumufresh I’ve been a Roots fan since I was 10 years old. It was such an honor to have one of the world's greatest MCs give me and my producer @djdummy his blessing on our first solo #tinydesk performance. @blackthought killed this joint straight off the top of the dome. He IS Hip Hop! #hiphop #mansamusa #theroots #blackthought #mumufresh #Repost @mumufresh #MicCheckMedia
