They tried again outside in Cedar Park
Cedar Park in The Bronx was the venue for what many consider the first ever Hip Hop party, way back in 1973. Hosted by DJ Kool Herc, it began at his 1520 Sedgwick apartment building before expanding into the park to accommodate the growing crowds.
Cedar Park is fairly well known these days (there’s even a clothing line named after it) but this lyric from 1986 was the first time it was acknowledged on wax.
Kool Herc features in a short film about Cedar Park made by the New York Parks Department.
