Who was the Kangol Kid?

Shaun Fequiere, better known as Kangol Kid, was one of the members of the hip hop group UTFO for its acronym in English (Untouchable Force Organization), whose group catapulted him as one of the pioneers in hip-hop, and although later he dedicated his Life only to be a producer and songwriter, he remained a legend to many.

It is worth mentioning that the artistic name of Fequiere is due to the frequent use that he gave to the hats of the English brand Kangol, which sponsored him. In fact, his most distinctive hat was included in the Collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Following his diagnosis, in 2012 Fequiere became the first rapper to be honored by the American Cancer Society, yet he spent a few more years battling this disease. In February 2021, he reported on his Instagram account that he had received an unflattering forecast.

Therefore, the hip-hop dancer had to undergo an emergency colonoscopy, in which they had to remove 10 centimeters of the colon after noticing some unusual symptoms. “There was definitely an upset stomach,” he revealed in an interview with Pix11News.
