Happy Birthday Kid Capri!
Kid Capri has had one of the most successful careers in Hip-Hop history. As a pioneer in the mixtape game, Capri has inspired generations of rappers thus creating an imprint in the game that few can measure up to. He’s worked with an army of OG’s including KRS-1, Heavy D and Slick Rick. He’s also worked with game-changers like Jay Z, Ghostface Killah, Styles P and Big L.
The new generation of hip-hop wouldn’t be where it is without Capri’s influence. The Prime Minister of mixtapes set the standard for every upcoming rapper or producer that wanted to put their music out there. But Capri is much more than just music. He was recently honored a Lifetime Achievement Award at last year’s Global Spin Awards for his work in entertainment as a whole. In honor of his 47th birthday, The Source highlights the monumental events of his career.
