Fat Joe, MC Lyte, DJ Premier & MC Eiht To Headline Final Rocksteady Anniversary Weekend
Next weekend, the Rocksteady Crew will celebrate its 40th anniversary. The yearly New York City event was announced by Crazy Legs to be the organization’s final concert event of this kind. While the R.S.C. lives on, Crazy Legs suggested there would be new platforms put in place to show its mission and colorful history.
To ring out an East Coast tradition in style, some Hip-Hop legends have confirmed their participation and performances.
On Friday (July 28), at the Bronx Brewery, Large Professor, Tony Touch, Funkmaster Flex, Breakbeat Lou and others have confirmed DJ sets. The event also serves as a Cazal pop-up shop.
Bronx native Fat Joe will perform Saturday (July 29) at the second Cazal pop-up shop. The Bowery Ballroom event is hosted by Cold Crush Brothers’ Grandmaster Caz and features two floors of shows and competition.
On Sunday afternoon, the closing concert will take place at Central Park’s Summer Stage. In addition to a tribute to Prodigy and Mobb Deep, performers include MC Lyte and a rare MC Eiht & DJ Premier set. Together, they released Which Way Iz West last month. D.I.T.C. affiliate Milano Constantine will also appear, in addition to Napolean Da Legend, Haddy Racks, Kevy Kev, and a second Tony Toca weekend set.
