After awarding LL Cool J as the first ever Hip-Hop representative on its coveted Kennedy Honors list last year, the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center continues to make space for Hip Hop culture has announced that it will be having several concerts with several of Hip Hop’s pioneers called “The Bridge Series” beginning this month on November 20.
Dubbed “The Bridge Concert Series: Pioneering Emcees Vol. 1”, the monumental event is produced by DJ Eclipse and Non Phixion. The hosts are the legendary Grandmaster Caz and the Juice Crew’s “First Lady” Roxanne Shante. While DJ Red Alert will be behind the 1s and 2s, emcees for the night include Kool Moe Dee, Kurtis Blow, MC Sha Rock (of Funky 4 + 1), Queen Lisa Lee, Spoonie Gee, and platinum-selling group Whodini.
Graff legend PHASE 2, who also designed the retro flyer for the event, will be adorning the walls with his one-of-a-kind artistic skills to keep the authentic feel of true school Hip Hop.
