New York Summer Jams

It's that time of the year when New York City's parks play host once again to some of the pioneer deejays that helped spawn hip hop in the late 70s and early 80s. Names like AFRIKA BAMBAATAA, GRANDWIZARD THEODORE, JAZZY JAY, RED ALERT, ROCKIN' ROB, GRANDMASTER CAZ (remember he was deejay before he began to MC), and DJ CHEESE will be teaming up on the 1200s with the likes of LARGE PROFESSOR, DJ CASH MONEY, LORD FINESSE, BIZ MARKIE, FORREST GETEMGUMP and other similarly revered beatheads. Great to see the legendary DJ CHEESE (WORLD DMC champ) joining the lineup this year. There will be several opportunities to check these deejay legends over the coming weeks - the speaker stacks and multiple boxes of 45s will be the first sign of something going down in your part of the city!
Keep your eye on the TOOLS OF WAR facebook page to keep abreast of the many events NOT to miss. And as the heatwave hits NYC you know this will be a summer to remember. Congratulations also to the Rock Steady Crew who celebrate their 35th anniversary this year with their usual presence felt in the city.
