Crown City in O-Town

Those old-school good boys of rap, the Crown City Rockers, will be hip-hopping over to Old Oakland Thursday for the twice-monthly street fest. The music starts 5 p.m. at Ninth and Washington streets. The sounds are free for all. Now if the weather would cooperate…
BTW, is it just me tripping over the fact thatĀ I getĀ nostalgic for the “good old days” of rap and have to do a double take over the thought that there could be such a thing? I never thought I would put rap and nostalgia in the same sentence.

    Today’s hip-hop ain’t got nothing on Old Skool Rap. Today’s crew can’t touch KRS-One, Rakim, Chuck D, etc. Just to name a few.
