Today is S.Ka$hj born day. It is also the 33rd Rock Steady Reunion Show in Lincoln Park, Newark NJ. The Bricks is a wonderful thing. Chickenheads got there toes out, my homie from way back, and a free Hip Hop show in the park.
Last year the event hosted over 40,000 people. R&B ,Gospel, House, and Hip Hop. Rock Steady Crew host the free Hip Hop show . B-Boys from over the world come to see the legends. This years line up...9th Wonder,Big Daddy Kane, Immortal Technique, EPMD, Artifacts,Lakim Shabazz, Lords of the Underground, Black Sheep, also DJ Evil D, I also heard that Capone & Noreaga closed the set.
Its hard to believe Rock Steady is still strong after 33 years. The highlight has to be Big Daddy Kane calling out the Rock Steady Crew. For people who don't know Kane was the original B-Boy from way back. Yo I'm say EPMD blew up the set. The fisherman hat is still live.
Two things happen on this day. The birth of Hip Hop and the birth of my man S.Ka$jh.
