Although it wasn't the first-ever, it was the first-ever rap song to be introduced to a mainstream audience. They had a few other hits in their time but the one they are most recognized for is their 1979 hit 'Rapper's Delight.'
This will be another family-friendly event at West Edge. The street will be blocked off for the evening and it will be a night of what they are describing as " old-school hip-hop, good company, and good vibes.
