While speaking with Shot97 host STAR, Savage provides a meticulous account of how the Universal Zulu Nation founder allegedly molested him by recounting details included in his book.

He claims the molestation began when he was around 13 or 14 years old. “I was a kid when this happened,” the 50-year-old author said. “I wanted to be down with the in-crowd, not really understanding that what Bambaataa was doing to me was molesting me. I knew it was wrong. I had these feelings that were like, ‘Yuck.'”


Savage claims he stayed quiet out of fear of what the Universal Zulu Nation would do to his family and because he was “ashamed.”

According to his official site, Savage is currently a judicial delegate in the 12th Judicial District in the Bronx. The single father of three is also a US Press Association journalist and author.
