MC Slice (The Collins Bros) Interview
Mobangem is an emcee from Mount Vernon, NY. He is a member of the legendary group, The Collins Bros. They were one of the most popular DJ groups in the mid-70s, with four emcees and three DJs. With their steel garbage can speakers sitting on wooden pegs, The Collins Bros parties were always packed to capacity. The main spots they played were The Rodbenders, St. Joseph’s Lodge, Mt. Vernon Boys Club, 4th Street playground, and New Rochelle Boys Club. Mobangem had a speedy delivery and won the crowd over with his skills. When the next level of DJ groups bought sound systems and practiced their routines, they played in the same spots that The Collins Bros had seen success.
