New York, NY (PRWEB) December 27, 2005
Hip-Hop Culture began in the South Bronx borough of New York City in the early ‘70s. Inner-city youth defined their existence and identified their purpose in life when they developed the arts of DJing, Emceeing, Breaking and Aerosol (Graffiti) Art. Hip-Hop crews organized around these four artistic elements of Hip-Hop Culture. The Cold Crush Brothers and other groups embarked on tours around the world, establishing Hip-Hop as a culture in France, Japan, Germany, Africa and elsewhere.
One of the Emcees for the Cold Crush and Hip-Hop Icon, Easy A.D., documented Hip-Hop’s 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, fliers from 1978-1985 that feature the different crews of the era, clothing/fashion, trophies, books, contracts and royalty statements.
This exhibit is the second in a series of historic presentations of Hip Hop artifacts, which debuted at the Schomburg Library for Research in Black Culture, in Harlem, in November of 2004. Easy A.D. also serves as an Executive Manager and co-founder of Classic Hip Hop L.L.C.
