Crazy Legs Gives a Lesson on Hip-Hop on Sway in the Morning

Crazy Legs is a pioneer in the Hip-Hop world, not for his bars, but for his b-boy legacy. From the Bronx, New York — the home of Hip-Hop, to our Manhattan Sirius XM studios, Crazy Legs steps into our studio for a true lesson of our beloved music genre and fills us in on what Rock Steady is all about.

In an interesting story, Crazy Legs explains the real origin of B-Boy (meaning Bronx Boy), and how Run DMC accidentally re-named and re-defined the B-Boy Stance.

While in-studio, he also breaks down where the term “Hip-Hop” came from, and how Love Bug Starski came up with it.

But why he really came to talk to us was to promote the new Puerto Rock Steady Music Festival! A 3-day party featuring performances by Talib Kweli, DJ Fleg, DJ Velcro, DJ Charlie Chase, DJ G-Bo The Pro & Erika The DJ “WayBack Whensdays” NYC, DJ Kool Flash, DJ Eriko… and more!
