DJ Los is one of the pioneers of Detroit Hip-hop. In 1988 he and E-Z B released the first hip-hop album by a Detroit artist, “Untouchable.” ‘Untouchable’ had hit songs ‘Girl You’re my Destiny’ and ‘Untouchable’ (you-tube the songs … now and take a listen to history). Since 88’ he and his father have impacted the world of hip-hop. The label ‘World One Records’ released “Untouchable” and many of the first hip-hop records in Detroit. His contribution is as impactful as Smokey Robinson, and one of my closest mentors Derrick May, though not propped up to where it should be.
