Afrika Bambaataa, Kool DJ Red Alert, and DJ Jazzy Jay / The True School Park Jam Series / 7.16.09 / Filmed and Edited by Mark Carranceja / Presented by Tools of War / Music: "Its Just Begun" The Jimmy Castor Bunch and "Its Your Thing" Funkadelic
Afrika Bambaataa, Kool DJ Red Alert, and The Original Jazzy Jay reunite on the wheels of steel for the first time in over 25 years. Many have neglected the fact these individuals are primarily responsible for the genesis of hip hop culture.
Noisemaker Media's Mark Carranceja was at the right place and at the right time to capture this historic moment in hip hop history. Carranceja is quietly becoming one of the most sought after filmmaker/music video directors in the industry and through this short edit, he shows us why his unique vision embodies the essence of hip hop culture.
The True School Park Jam Series is made possible by Christie Z Pabon [Tools of War, DMC USA] and Fabel Pabon [UZN, RSC, Tools of War]. Their hard work and dedication to the preservation of DJ and hip hop culture allows for once in a lifetime moments like this.
