And I can think of many episodes I swung in Lincoln Park…

Almost 1000 people gathered in New Rochelle’s Lincoln Park for the 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop Celebration on Saturday, September 16th. Hosted by 2 Cool, PJ Splash, and Cuzin Corn, with DJs Pro C, Scram Jones, and Jazzy Joyce on the one’s and two’s as well as a special DJ set by DJ Supreme. There were many dope live performances from Mr. Cheeks of The Lost Boyz, Smif-N-Wessun, Stunna Gang, Pretty Hoops, Capella Grey, The Rough House Surviverz, and CL Smooth just to name a few. But it was obvious who the crowd came to see. There were a whole lotta emcees on the stage that Saturday, but just as the sun set, Brand Nubian came out and showed it was their house. The crowd was thrilled to see the hometown heroes swing another episode in Lincoln Park. Shout out to Nate Adams & Lachonne Williams (SuggarPlums) for putting together a great event to celebrate this monumental year of Hip-Hop. The mural above was done by Signature Savage. I’m told this may become an annual event!
