can you introduce yourself to the readers who (most of )don't even know who you are(what a shame)?
where you from?

I'm from The Land Of The Rising Sun.

where did you get that name: the original shogun assassin?

My name "Ken Sport" was given by My Mentor & Soul Brother, Legendary Artist Clothing Designer "Alyasha", Peoples in the Industry know his name

(Alyasha Named and Designed "Phat Farm", "Mecca Usa", among others classic hip hop brands)

Some Of You might know a 70's Album called "Hustlers Convention" 's by lightnin' Rod
to me it's still one of the best albums of all times.
well on this album there is this song about a Character named"Sport" that's where ken sport came from actually

and Original Shogun Assassin came from the movie

how long have been in the game and more specifically in the crates diggin' game?:

I never been in no game.

It's my LIFE, I hate peoples playing games so I don't call it a game.
That's one of the reasons why Music Bizness is Wack and Screwed up!
Kids nowaday talking about game, game this, game that!
Play ur playstation or nintendo in ur Crib if you wanna play games!

To Me it all begans in the Early 90's when we started hang out at SOUL KITCHEN, one of the legendary Party of NYC.
(everyone who were involved in hip hop at that time would go to that party at S.O.B.)
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

When It Comes To Diggin' Life, I Take It more seriously.
It's a Journey of Discovery & Enjoying Good Music.

My everyday life was just diggin',diggin', diggin' in the 90's period!
I remember that I used to Rent a Car & Drove down to South just to dig
I will cross over the USA, Flew to CALI,do whatever it takes to get records
It Was All About Diggin'

Me & and my other Mentor "Dev Large"
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
(Who basically put me into Diggin' Life, He Taught me about Good Music, he is one of the best MC, Producer & DJ in Tokyo)
we Drove to Chicago & Michigan even in the Snow in the early 90's,we would go anywhere just to find records.

Once I dug up "Hustler's Convention" Original copy with Inner Sleeve mint condition for $5.00 at Detroit's Salvation Army!
and I found a mint copy of "JADE" in North Carolina.

Big up to MY otha Brotha ELI, HE Showed me all the secret spots from the south back in the 90's.

I Also used to hang out with my Partner in crime FUSION, he showed me many spots, and we used to go RECORD CONVENTIONS together
I would say HE has the Best Producer's Record Collection in EastCoast!
and of course DA DON BENI BRONCO (abb records) who has the Best West Coast collection.
we found a lots of stuff in South.

Also My Man Yasushi who taught me & gave me many Incredible Records! People in the Music BIZ know what i'm talking about......Yasushi collection is in Mint Condition!!!!!!!

I wanna give A Shoutout to All The Real Diggers :
Fusion, Beni B, SoulMan, Spinna, Dev Large, San, Yasushi, Bobbito, Stretch, Eli, Ski, Fanatic, Itruth, Tahleim, Marlon B, Buckwild, Lord Finesse, Premier, Pete Rock, Amir, Beatnuts, Q TIP, DJ ELI.
Mad Props They are True real Diggers!

It Was Just About Diggin' For Us In The Nineties

when did you started doin'Your tapes, the 'original' serie who used to be available only in a few selected shops in new york, in sneakers shops like union and bobitto footwork i think ?

and what give you the idea to do this type of tape?

I started making Original mixtapes Naturally!
It Was All About Passion and Love of Music, Original Music, period
It was just between My friends and circle.
Back in early 90's I was a Clothing Buyer, Fashion Designer and met Soul Brothers like Alyasha, John Forte, Dj Itruth, Dj Tahlim, Eli, Ski, Fanatic, Bobbito, Stretch, Dj Marlon B, Dev Large, Yasushi, Dj Etcha Sketch, Joe(Former Union), Chris (Former Union), Camella, Jeff Staple, Lord Sear, Vaz, Eli Esco, Riggs, Dau Yi, Hawai Mike, Beni Bronco, then peoples started asking friends, on and on, and started to sell at our spots such as my Favorite Shop "UNION" Thanx to Marian.
and One of Best Koolest Spot in NYC ever Legendary "Bobbito's Footwork". Staple Design, and Japanese Best Records Stores "CISCO Music"
Thanx to Mr Sato & Mr Kajimura.

The Most important part of it, was that it was only for Cool People who loves music!

I had some offers from other Stores, distributions, but I didn't do it.
Nahhh I should say "Fuck You!"

I always liked the idea to produce Limited series from the beginning,
I didn't started this ,Because i wanted to make money out of it,
I understand that it's all about the money nowadays,
But To Me it Has Ever Been about Art, Music
The LOVE of music

how many records do you own (if you're still able to count them)?

I'm not sure of How many records I own.
But I used to own a lots, lots of records, and I sold a lots of them in late 90's and early 2000, at Bobbito's Footwork,(most of The Used Records Sold in the store were from my Collection). also some friend sold a lot of them for me on internet.

It's not about how many records you own, it's about quality of music, and what you like,
You might have Zillion Records but most of them are Ceap!
or you have a few Thousands records and ALL are Good Music & in MINT condition!
everyone has a different collection, it's all about your style.
and Endless Music!

you're still in contact with dj fusion another pioneer in the original breaks mixtape game,

do you stay in touch with any other fellow djs
like soulman (another true pioneer)?

Of course I'm Still In Touch with my partner Fusion,

we were talking about doin' The next Come Into Knowledge Mixed Cd.
(volume 4)

Oh Soulman...
He is the Original Mixtape King!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I would definitly say he is The Real True Pioneer & King of Diggin' Original!

what do you think of muro claiming to be the king of diggin'?

Muro is A Super Star in Japan, and Also A Great Businessman.

what's up with the japanese and the crates diggin' madness?

even some of your tapes are still on sale in japan on yahoo auction?

I have no idea about that.
is someone sellin' my tapes on Auction? Let me know about that!!@#$%^&*

what is your favorite record of all time (you can name Five if it's too hard to pick up one)

No Question,
Any James Brown Record
All Roy Ayers

All Kool & The Gang

I Just Love Music

what is the weirdest place you ve ever been to buy records?

I went to The Illest Places to Buy Records All over the USA,
Crack Head House,
Storage in the Middle of Nowhere at Night,
No Light , Can't see anything, but Diggin', Keep Diggin'
that was somewhere in Virginia? or Washington?
oh And also One of DOLO Record's Dealer in Maryland.
his Basement was like Our Drug Store!

Have you been selling records to producers, And If Yes can you name us a few of your buyers?

I don't really sell Records to producers,
but I hook 'em up on a lot of Samples.
Trade it, or somethin', I Used to take Hot Samples from my Jersey City APT to SKI's Crib in BK Everyday,
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
when i was working with him for ROC A BLOK RECORDS.
and SKI would chop them up and put it together.
He showed me a lot of things about Music Equipment and Producing Music.

but The First Person to teach me how to use The MPC60 was My Brother JOHN FORTE

how did you hook up with jeff staple for the original future tracks mixes?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Jeff Staple is a Great guy & Genius Business Man in Fashion Bizness.
I don't remember how i met him, but I know him for a long time,
he used to come around, when i was working at 555soul store as A Store Manager in The 90's.
and we started some Tees first and at that time time I talked to him of my idea of makin hot tapes and we just made it happen.

what's the present and futur of ken sport aka kenneth de wolfe ?
how does it goes now that you re a producer?

I'm working on some new project for my friends.

your mixes are still available (well some of them) in secret spots on the internet,

you're the most mysterious of all the djs,
it s like nobody really knows your face
it s almost impossible to googlize you (unless you speak japanese)
but still for the crates mix lover like me you're definitly a legend how do you feel about that?

I should be mysterious or whatever.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
why you have to be famous?
what's the point? I just live my life & do what i do,
and love music, if peoples know me that's good,
but i don't care how many peoples know me or how famous i am...

It's Just About Good Music & cool Peoples around, Living The Good Life is the only thing that matters to me.

and Let me know who is selling my tapes on internet?
where and what site?
I should know them right???

do you think you ll ever quit diggin for records?

I haven't diggin as much as i used to nowadays, but
i will be diggin' till i Die for sure!

One Last Word?

Peace to all SOUL BROTHERS!
