NELLY, KOOL HERC TIDBITS

 

Rapper Nelly will make a high profile debut appearance on CSI New York Wednesday night (October 8). In the series, Nelly plays a soon to be recurring role of a club owner who is accused of murder. The rapper's latest album Brass Knuckles is in stores now.

 

The building that helped give birth to hip-hop was sold to a new owner last week for $7 million dollars. Developer Mark Karasick outbid the current tenants of 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, which is located in the Bronx.

 

The address is recognized as the place that Kool Herc hosted his first parties with his sister Cindy, eventually leading to the birth of Hip-Hop music in the early 1970’s. Tenants had hoped to purchase the 100-unit building unit to preserve the buildings legacy as well as to prevent Karasick from raising rents in order to push the current residents out of their apartments.

 

In July of 2007, 1520 Sedgwick was declared eligible to be listed as a state and federal landmark.

 

Kool Herc told reporters he was disappointed that no one from the hip-hop community “stepped up to the table in some form of fashion” to show support.  The sale marks a two-year battle for the residents, who now fear that their rents will be raised in order to cover the costs associated with selling the building.
