Rich Medina is considered a pioneer in the American DJ community due to his musical versatility, his tenure in the soul/funk and hip hop communities, and for being largely considered THE American DJ who brought Fela Kuti's sound to the dancefloor en masse with his legendary Jump N Funk dance parties well over a decade ago. Beyond the records, Rich Medina is much more than a DJ—he's a poet, educator, music producer, and international recording artist, as well as too many additional titles to list here. Rich's column "On The Road With Rich Medina" appears weekly here at Complex.com/city-guide. Enjoy.
