ML’s Riddle 5.24.07

Earlier this week my man K over at Analog Giant posted about a New York times article. The article covers how the place where Hip-Hop was given its birth is in danger of becoming just another plain apartment complex. The building is fighting on 2 fronts, to stay as public housing and to gain historical recognition status. It boggles my mind that Hip-Hop’s history all too often gets pushed back to the back burner. If this was the place where a pioneering rock band like the Rolling Stones lived, it would’ve already been preserved and probably turned into a museum. So why is it with a building like this, the invaluable historical hip hop aspect is completely overlooked and ignored?
