via @nuestra_patriapr - Rock Steady Crew…It’s only fitting that as the culture enters into middle-aged maturity we embark on a reevaluation of hip hop’s origins nearly 40 years after it was born in a project house basement in the South Bronx. The global culture industry has made it clear both in the U.S. and abroad that “rap music” is an African-American niche that slowly rose to world dominance thanks to Eminem and Iggy Azalea, or something like that [That’s a bit sarcasm, in case you didn’t catch that.] But we all know that hip hop is actually a multifarious urban culture that rose forth both literally and figuratively from the ashes of New York’s down-and-out black and Latino communities, only to rapidly spread to other blighted, neglected, but culturally effervescent urban cores throughout the country. “A Latino History of Hip Hop” is poised to be a fundamental contribution to this historical vindication of Latinos’ central role in the development of hip hop culture, specifically the New York Puerto Ricans who break’d, emcee’d and spun their way into the pantheon of early hip hop, long before the major record labels took out their forks and knives, put on their bibs, and commercialized an authentic, multicultural urban phenomenon into a neatly packaged concept of “black music.” #Boricua #Rokafella #PuertoRicanWeekend #BoricuaDiaspora #RockSteadyCrew #HipHop #puertorico #puertoricanpride #puertorriqueno #afroboricua #colonialism #boricuadiaspora #puertoricanhistory #nuestrapatriapr #afrolatino #nostatehoodforpuertorico #forcedwar #igdaily #nuyorican #puertoricoisnotforsale #libertad #republicofpuertorico #republicadepuertorico #orgulloboricua #patriaomuerte #taino #puertoricanexodus #Nuyorican #PhillyRican #QUEVIVABORIKÈNLIBRE

Richard Colón (born January 1, 1966) better known by his stage name Crazy Legs is a b-boy from the Bronx New York City, USA. He featured in the earliest stories on hip hop dancing to appear in mainstream press, and as president of the Rock Steady Crew brought the form to London and Paris in 1983. Today he is also involved in community outreach, dance instruction and dance theater productions. His pioneering status is reflected in his appearances in fiction films and documentaries, old and new. Crazy Legs is the most popular & commercially successful of the few original members remaining of the Rock Steady Crew, and is its current president.
