OG Radiotron 39th Anniversary -
Macarthur Park - Los Angeles, CA
This is always a great event to attend, This event was full of Hip-Hop History and Legends. For those of you that dont know, The Radiotron was a Youth Center that first opened in 1983 to help get kids off the street using the 4 elements of Hip-Hop!
“When we say the word hip-hop, we are talking about, breaking (B-Boy), EMCeeing, graffiti writing, deejaying (Turntablism). These are called the the four core elements of hip-hop. The reason why we do breaking, emceeing, graffiti writing, deejaying is to cause peace, love, unity and safely having fun." -KRS One
West Coast Hip Hop History is so deep in this place where so many gathered including Ice T, Air Force Crew, Egyptian Lover and many more. Many scenes from the Breakin Movies were filmed in the Radiotron.
"The historic building was demolished long ago, but the legacy of the Hip Hop youth center prevailed in those kids. Thirty-eigth years later we gather to celebrate the anniversary of "Radiotron" and to learn the history of Hip Hop culture in L.A." - Radiotron Facebook Page
