The World’s Famous Supreme Team are true pioneers of hip hop!

The “World’s Famous Supreme Team” originated in 1979 in New York, when Sedivine the Mastermind (Larry Price) founder of the “World’s Famous Supreme Team”, and Just Allah the Superstar (Ronald Larkins Jr.), took on rhyming to the beat, known as rapping.

It was taking the media by storm, and was taking no shorts! The “World’s Famous Supreme Team” was making hip hop history. The late 70′s and early 80′s was indeed the hip hop era.

The WFST hosted and Deejayed the best of the parties … and soon landed a spot on WHBI 105.9 FM, alongside the legendary Mr. Magic, before the latter shifted to WBLS in New York. The one hour show was named after them, the "World’s Famous Supreme Team Show".

It made quite a bit of noise, so much in fact, that it caught the attention of "Malcolm Mclaren" in London, England.

The combination of Deejaying and rapping – hip hop led to their first recording, Buffalo Gals. It was a collaboration with Malcolm Mclaren and coincidentally a group called The Art of Noise! Buffalo Gals was produced by Trevor Horn, Ann Dudley and Gary Langan (Art of Noise). Throughout the 1980′s and mid 1990′s, “Buffalo Gals”, “She’s Looking Like a Hobo , “D’ya like Scratchin’?, and “World’s Famous” were amongst other hits released on Charisma Records, Polygram Records, and Island Records.

McLaren had formerly employed the Supreme Team on his Duck Rock album, where it rhymed over T-Ski Valley's "Catch the Beat, Kool and the Gang's "Summer Madnes", Lonnie Liston Smith's "Quiet Moments", Esther Willimas' "Last night changed it all" and Cerrone's "Rocket in the pocket - and The group was also one of the first acts to espouse the beliefs and philosophy of the Nation of Gods and Earths.
