When MC Shan and Marley Marl made “The Bridge,” they were not only talking about the history, talent, and surroundings of Queensbridge Houses, they were paying homage to the nearby parks where it all happened. The places Shan rhymed about is the same park that years later, Nas would admit he was too shy to touch the mic in. As part of a new video series, “Field Trip,” Tragedy Khadafi takes cameras to the very landmark.

The Intelligent Hoodlum was part of the Juice Crew, a self-proclaimed “architect” of Capone-N-Noreaga’s The War Report, and a prominent soloist into today. A rep of the ’80s, ’90s, and last 15 years, Tragedy Khadafi is one of the strongest perspectives in showing why “The Bridge” is a sacred Rap monument.

Trag’ takes cameras where many cannot easily go. With excitement on his face and in his voice, the decorated veteran shows the lights, fixtures, and accents of the 1980s park jams. He explains the intricacies of the primitive parties, and how he first approached Marley Marl. The cameras show the ‘bridge today (literally), as the onetime Gee Street Records MC explains how growing up in Q-U, great music is part of you at a young age.
