With the distinction of hosting the longest running rap show (The Awesome 2 Radio Show, c. 1982), the Awesome 2 became the wise men of rap, offering consultation and advice to many of its biggest names including Big Daddy Kane, EPMD, and Nice & Smooth. The duo, Special K and DJ Teddy Tedd, are cousins who originally replaced Afrika Islam's Wednesday afternoon slot at WHBI in New York.

In 1990, Special K and Teddy Tedd branched out into production, compiling the History of Rap series for Select Records.
