Spank Rock was AWOL (once again), but the originoo headz were still in full force in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Wild Style at Danbro Studios Warehouse in Brooklyn back on November 13th. Billed performers who did show up included Busy Bee, Double Trouble, Grandmaster Caz, Grand Wizard Theodore, and The Rub. Unannounced guests included Fantastic Romantic‘s Master Rob and Kevie Kev, and “starchild” MC Kool Kyle. The entire night was curated by Wild Style director Charlie Ahearn and Sleep When Dead NYC (his son Joe Ahearn).

“It’s not just young people here. It’s a really great turnout, all over the spectrum, not just one type of person, or race, or age here,” [event promoter] Todd P said.

He was right. The audience included hip NYU Freshmen with skinny jeans and ankle boots, a young CUNY professor, a 44-year-old radio station volunteer from Seattle, all sorts of music professionals, video and graffiti artists, nostalgia-stricken fans from the original Bronx scene and everyone in between.

Rapper duo Fenton Arms and Raylight Hope, who call themselves “the future of hip-hop,” felt honored to be in the same building with the guys who broke ground 25 years ago.

“It’s like you go back in time and actually chill with Malcolm X,” said Arms. “Without that movie rap might not have happened the way it happened.” [Greenpoint Gazette]
