Langston Hughes III
is an American Hip Hop group from Charleston SC. The group consists of Renaissance men Chawle Dawk Da Superstar, Maximillion, Choc Da Bully and Da Moja DJ Cory B. The group's music is a natural progression of the "golden era" of hip hop music they have termed Adult Contemporary Head Nod Music. "We are not stuck in the 90's but we also do not move to the beat of the current drums" says Chawle Dawk DA Superstar. The group took its name from Harlem Renaissance leader, poet and activist, Langston Hughes." Langston Hughes was a Renaissance man... from merging his poetry with Jazz to fashion. His suit game was crazy! We embody that same creative energy." says Maximillion. Langston Hughes's poem Dream Deferred also stands as the foundation and motivation for the group re entering the music industry 20 years later. Click here to view The Charleston City Paper article.
