CROTONA PARK - Music filled the air Thursday at Crotona Park Amphitheater during The Crotona Park Jams.

The event featured original hip-hop legends who created the music style and organizers say it’s important to hold events that give the ‘Boogie Down’ its name.

Organizer Christie-Z Pabon says "This is a place where you can come and see legends, hip-hop legends, DJ that you thought you would never see again. We’re some of the people that brought park jams back, and this is the home of hip-hop so this is the first place park jams should be back."

Hip-hop enthusiasts can see DJs like Jazzy Jay, GrandMaster Caz and Cash Money Thursday nights until August 1.
