Yes...and largely Afro-Latino...that's why people didn't really take notice. 2 of the members in the Furious Five(of Melle Mell and the Furious Five) are "Puerto-Rican"...have fun figuring out who...Much like the Jamaican "Sound system" is the basis for the "DJ" (DJ Kool Herc)...The only difference is where the slave ship landed...In the African melting pot of the NY projects...everyone contributed.
