Former New York State Democratic Committee Member and author Ronald Savage claims in his latest book, Impulse, Urges and Fantasies, that Hip Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa molested him several times as a teenager.
Savage gives a detailed account of how the Universal Zulu Nation founder allegedly molested him in an interview with Shot97 host STAR, details which are also included in his book.
He claims the molestation began when he was around 13 or 14-years old and that Bambaataawould often ask him to have oral sex, to which he would always oblige.
"I was a kid when this happened," the 50-year old author says. "I wanted to be down with the in-crowd, not really understanding that what Bambaataa was doing to me was molesting me. I knew it was wrong. I had these feelings that were like, 'Yuck.'"
Savage claims that he never reported the molestation incidents out of fear of what the Zulu Nation would do to his family and because he was ashamed.
The statute of limitations for Savage to press charges has expired.
