"I had the pleasure of seeing SUPA perform for the first time in a showcase in the Poconos. Every now and then I run across an artist that I feel has vision, passion and creativity. SUPA has these qualities, coupled with his respect for music's industry. He's a breath of fresh air for the listening audience. When I saw him perform, I not only heard but also felt something special. So I look forward to hearing great things from and about him in the future! Stay you, SUPA, and you'll stay blessed! T-3 Peace!"
(This legendary rap pioneer was a member of the Treacherous Three, known primarily for monster hits such as "At the Party," "New Rap Language," "Turning You On" and "Gotta Rock." Remembered as originators of fast rapping, T3 was the first to represent lyrical rap and the first to perform in such places as Brazil, Holland, Burmuda and dozens of other countries. They directly influenced MCs such as T La Rock, LL Cool J and Rakim, and continue to impact artists today!)
"L.A. Sunshine is one of the true music biz legends. You gotta get his powerful autobiography today!" -SUPA
Says Chris Rock about L.A. Sunshine's book: "I am one of those lucky people that got to experience Hip Hop music before there were any rap records. My friends and I risked our lives to see shows on the block, in the parks, and in the recreation rooms. At the time, Hip Hop was in its early stages and was closer to the punk rock movement than anything else. The first time I saw The Treacherous Three they reminded me of
the David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, and their Temptations, and unlike any other group I saw at the time, they had tight choreography and stage costumes that told you they were stars. There might have been bigger names making records back then, but to me, there was no group better than The Treacherous Three."
Writes Chuck D: "L.A. Sunshine is a modern day griot reflecting upon a time when mainstream media did not cover the urban perspective. His voice is necessary; his mind has been sharpened by the insight and critical competition of his contemporaries in his classic trio, The Treacherous Three. It did not hurt that Kool Moe Dee and Special K were the earliest of Hip Hop intellectuals, they never dumbed-down for any audience anywhere! In fact, they made everything and everyone surrounding the rap game step up, making many afraid to rhyme if displaying a Dumb and Dumber style."
Dmc says: "As a member of The Treacherous Three, L.A. was the personification of his name, Sunshine; it fit him like a glove, and he shed light like the sun always bringing the brightness to the group. I am smiling right now because I did not have to go back and listen to his rhymes to re- familiarize myself with them, because those lines are embedded in my head for life."
