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.
