South Bronx Subway Rap

A change of pace since I’ve posted mostly rock oriented stuff for the last few days. The South Bronx Subway Rap is from the film Wild Style, which is the original hip-hop movie. A lot of the movie was shot on the Lower East Side, including the climactic concert sequence at the East River Amphitheater, which was torn down several years ago as part of so-called “urban renewal.” The mural that Lee painted was still on the fucking building when they tore it down; I still feel some effort should have been made to preserve it. At least we’ll always have the music.
