Kurt Walker (born August 9th, 1959), better known by his stage name Kurtis Blow, is an American rapper and record producer. He is one of the first commercially successful rappers and the first to sign with a major record label. "The Breaks", a single from his 1980 eponymous debut album, is the first certified gold record rap song.

The album Kurtis Blow was rapper Kurtis Blow's self-titled debut, released in 1980. It includes the famous song "The Breaks", that was often sampled later in hip-hop records, mainly for its introduction made by Blow's a cappella vocal, and for the drum break, giving a wordplay dimension to the title. "Rappin' Blow, Pt. 2" was issued as a single, that had a "do-it-yourself" B-side, the instrumental version. "Takin' Care of Business" is one of the first hip hop and rock'n'roll cross over attempts.
