This year’s event will feature b-boy/girl contests, DJ sets, art shows, panels, parties and free concerts. “After 30 years we’re proud to say that we’re still going strong,” says Crazy Legs, RSC President. “For the anniversaries we want to focus on all aspects that make hip-hop the social force that it is. This is about education and entertainment. With crew battles, hot DJs, panels and live graffiti shows our 30th promises to showcase everything hip-hop represents.” This year’s RSC Anniversary will feature appearances from Sway of MTV, Rob Swift, RSC founder Joe Joe, Large Professor, Mr. Wiggles, Keith Murray, EPMD and Grandmaster Mele Mel.
