Hip-Hop Culture began in the South Bronx borough of New York City in the early Â70s. Inner-city youth defined their existence and identified their purpose in life when they developed the arts of DJing, Emceeing, Breaking and Grafitti Art. Hip-Hop crews organized around these four artistic elements of Hip-Hop Culture. The Cold Crush Brothers was one of these groups that embarked on tours around the world, establishing Hip-Hop as a culture in France, Japan, Germany, Africa and elsewhere.
One of the Emcees for Cold Crush and Hip-Hop Icon, Easy A.D., documented Hip-HopÂs history even while he was helping to make it. He and official Cold Crush photographer, Joey Conzo, are credited with preserving a vast storehouse of hip-hop artifacts which includes: photographs from 1979-1985 that depict Hip-Hop in its purest form, flyers from 1978-1985 that feature the different crews of that era, clothing/fashion, trophies, books, contracts and royalty statements.
At the close of this historic presentation, the featured artifacts will become part of a traveling exhibit. Easy A.D. also serves as the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Advisors for the new 24-hour cable network devoted exclusively to Hip-Hop, the Real Hip-Hop Network.
