Hip Hop birthplace honoured

The location that has been described as “the birthplace of Hip Hop” is hoping to be preserved after an application to make it a historic landmark was approved.

The Sedgwick Building hosted parties where DJ Kool Herc played sets which spawned the foundation of the Hip Hop culture and has been namechecked in tracks by the likes of Nas in the recent past. Herc himself called for the preservation of the building, so let’s hope the authorities pay attention and keep the historic building exactly how it should be kept!
