MC Zulu and Kush Arora "Lose Control"
Most people would rather forget the taunting and name-calling they experienced during adolescence, but not Dominique Rowland. After moving to a mostly white neighborhood in Chicago as a school child, Rowland heard some ignorant classmates call him "Zulu." Rather than try to avoid the name, he embraced it, and also took inspiration from the Zulu freedom fighters of South Africa and Afrika Bambaataa's Zulu Nation.
