November 4th, Kings Theater hosted the Art of Rap concert showcasing some of Hip-Hops legends. Brooklyn’s own Big Daddy Kane and Strong Island’s god-emcee, Rakim touched the stage and created pure magic. But they weren’t the only show stoppers: Raekwon and Ghostface Killah from The Wu-Tang Clan,  EPMD, N.O.R.E., Melle Mel and so many more came out to represent real rap in its purest form and The Source was there to capture it. Enjoy.

 

Big Daddy Kane- Wrath of Kane always in full effect!

If you don’t know who Grandmaster Caz is then you need to stop saying you know Hip-Hop history… and he still gets busy!
