It's August 8, maybe you or somebody you know has a birthday. And so does legendary MC Kool Moe Dee.

KOOL MOE DEE HOW YA LIKE ME NOW T
Jive Records

Kool Moe Dee was one of the first rappers to win a Grammy Award, and the first to play the Grammys. Additionally, his long-running feud with LL Cool J is the bone-in, dry-aged ribeye of hip-hop beefs.

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one and all, and to Kool Moe Dee, a badass who showed all of us what it is to be Kool.
