It’s a Kool Moe Dee day! That’s because today (8/8) is Kool’s birthday. He was born in New York City as Mohandas Dewese and was the first rapper to perform at the Grammys. KMD has had a long-standing feud about who’s coolest with a fellow NYC rapper. So, he probably won’t be getting a birthday present from LL Cool J.
U2 guitarist The Edge is also celebrating his birthday today. David Howell Evans was born in England to a Welsh family but raised in Ireland by sheep. Just kidding about that last part. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him at #38 on its list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
Does The Edge have the edge on Kool Moe Dee? Or does the hip-hopper have a few more gray hairs??
