Another year, another Afropunk. The festival keeps growing, with bigger crowds and bigger performers. Saturday was somewhat hard to navigate, with Solange bringing out massive audiences. Sunday was a bit more chill, with Raphael Saadiq closing out the weekend. I feel like I didn’t get as many epic shots as last year, but it was still a fun time. Good seeing everybody!
The legendary Rock Steady Crew celebrated their 39th anniversary in Central Park this past Sunday. Partnered with SummerStage, the celebration brought out some of hip-hop’s favorites from over the years. Performers included Doug E Fresh, Nice & Smooth, Bahamadia, and the Boot Camp Clik with a tribute to the late Sean Price. The rain drizzled in and out, but didn’t stop people from coming out for a good time. And the party’s not complete without a gif of Greg Nice dancing.
