Eventually, Caz joined the legendary rap group“The Cold Crush Brothers.” The members of the rap group consisted of, Grandmaster Caz, AD, JDJ, Kay Gee, Tony Tone, and Charlie Chase.

Concerning the allegations against Afrika Bambataa, Caz did not have any information. Caz admitted he heard the rumors but that was it. Be that as it may, Bambataa is being sued by an alleged victim. The legal papers were served to Bambataa recently. The Bronx native’s organization “The Universal Zulu Nation” has been charged with sex trafficking and prostitution of a 12-year-old boy. Allegedly, the young boy was molested for a period of four years, as reported by All Hip Hop. The case by John Doe vs Lance Taylor was filed in the Bronx Supreme Court on August 4, 2021. The state has graphic details and many of the allegations are against Bambataa.
Allegedly, the sex crimes against John Doe were at Bambataa’s Bronx River apartment on 1609 East 174th Street. The alleged “johns” would go to have sex with the child at the apartment. Of course, this is not the first time we have heard about Bambataa’s alleged sex crimes against children. However, Bambataa has never been charged with any crimes.
