Yesterday, in the A-section, the Washington Post ran an article about DJ Kool Herc and his efforts to save the Bronx apartment building in which he invented hip-hop back in 1973.
The developer who is trying to buy the building, where DJ Kool Herc spun in the rec room, would, presumably, turn it into something other than a hip-hop museum.
DJ Kool Herc is going to hold a fundraiser to help the tenants buy the building themselves. But wouldn’t this be the perfect acquisition for some hip-hop mogul? I mean, Lexus, shmexus. Who needs another hot tub when you can own the building where it all started? Am I right?
