EPMD LIVE @ Queensbridge Park

Just had the pleasure of seeing EPMD rock LIVE @ Queensbridge Park in Queens, NYC. Home to legendary rappers & producers such as Nas, Mobb Deep, & Marley Marl. It was incredible being in the exact spot that bred these artists whom changed the culture & world as we know it. We got a little lost getting to Queensbridge, but after hearing so many Nas & Mobb Deep songs we saw the street signs (Vernon Blvd), and the Queensbridge projects so we knew we were in the right place. EPMD are legends! The Green Eyed Bandit aka Eric Sermon has influenced producers around the world with his signature funky basslines dripping over thick drums, and is responsible for the production of some of the classic, Golden era hip hop (Redman, Def Squad, etc). Marley Marl, DJ Scratch, & Capone from CNN (Capone n Noriega) made a guest appearance also.

We got there a bit late, so I only was able to video tape a small portion of the end set. Eric Sermon & Capone themselves also shared some words of wisdom with Blunt Guts. Check out the video below.
