30 Years ago Hip Hop was a different place. The youth of the inner streets had very little to call there own. When a young NYU student by the name of Rick Rubin joined with Russell Simmons to form Def Jam records they spawned a new generation of the genre. 30 years of amazing artist have come through the label during times when urban youth needed them the most.
To share in these amazing artist I decided to attend the Def Jam 30th Anniversary concert at the Barclay Center, Brooklyn. While waiting for a couple of friends I decided to set up a series of videos to share the performance with the world. Artist from Warren G, EPMD, Keith Murray, ONYX, Foxy Brown, Ja Rule, Ashanti, DMX and Rick Ross all filled the stage. As a New aYorker from the Bronx, my first will always be Hip Hop music.
Enjoy the videos by Wizastudios and share them with your friends.
