Did you know one of the greatest pioneers of Hip Hop is a Bajan Grandmaster Flash - Joseph Saddler was born in Bridgetown, Jan 1st 1958.
It is through his father's record collection is why we have the hip hop we know and love today .
Saddler's parents played an important role in his interest in music. His parents came from Barbados and his father was a big fan of Caribbean and black American records. As a child, Saddler was fascinated by his father's record collection. In an interview, he reflected: "My father was a very heavy record collector. He still thinks that he has the stronger collection. I used to open his closets and just watch all the records he had. I used to get into trouble for touching his records, but I'd go right back and bother them." Saddler's early interest in DJing came from this fascination with his father's record collection as well as his mother's desire for him to educate himself in electronics.
