NEW YORK -- Thursday marked the 49th anniversary of the birth of hip-hop, which founders say started in the Bronx.
Mayor Eric Adams joined DJs and hip-hop legends at the community center on Sedgwick Avenue in Morris Park for the occasion.
That's where DJ Kool Herc threw a back-to-school jam to help his little sister raise money for school clothes in 1973. He is regarded as the founding father of hip-hop.
Adams says on Aug. 11, 2023, the "Hip-Hop 50 Years" exhibit will open as part ofat the Bronx Terminal Market 11.
