Afrika Bambaataa, one of the towering figures in the early days of rap and hip hop, is being sued for allegedly trafficking teenage boys in previous decades.

A man identified as “John Doe” filed a lawsuit in Aug. 2021, obtained by Rolling Stone, in which the man, now in his 40s, described in graphic detail what was allegedly done to him by Bambaata and other members of the Zulu Nation in the early 1990s.

Doe alleges that “from 1991, when the Plaintiff was merely 12 years old, to 1995, the Plaintiff was repeatedly sexually abused and sex trafficked at the hands of” Bambaataa, whose government name is Lance Taylor.

Bambaata allegedly invited Mr. Doe over to his home and remarked about the teen’s physique before moving over to caress his arms, chest and torso. Eventually, Bambaata allegedly moved to “inappropriately touch Plaintiff in his private areas,” and then the touching graduated to watching porn videos. The lawsuit claims Bambaata would encourage Doe to masturbate and then it “progressed to mutual masturbation” and soon “progressed to sodomy.”

There were allegedly others in Bambaataa’s inner circle who were also into pedophilia, according to Doe’s complaint.

Plaintiff became a victim of sex trafficking as Defendant Taylor would transport Plaintiff to other locations and offer Plaintiff for sex to other adult men,” the lawsuit states. “During said encounters Defendant Taylor would watch as Plaintiff was sodomized by other adult men.”

Doe has subsequently suffered permanent psychological and emotional damage and has never been able to maintain lasting employment, the lawsuit claims.
