That's right...free...for those that dont know, NYC CityParks Foundation puts together free shows every summer at various NYC parks around the five boroughs...I go to as many as I can every year cause the artists performing are the bomb diggity...some of the best shows ive been to have been these free park ones....for example, last year, Lovebug Starski and Biz Markie were on the bill....normally, that would be dope enough...but a whole slew of people came out and performed like Grandmaster Caz, Mele Mel, T-Ski Valley, Doug E Fresh, Crash Crew, Mike from Fearless Four, etc...DOPE

So here's the schedule for this year...be sure to come out and support if you can (via http://grandgood.com/2008/05/13/nyc-cityparks-concert-schedule-announced/)

Yeah Yeah, I stay right around the corner from Crotona, and every summer they do these shows on thursday nights in July, I've been going for the past few years and its always bangin'

The shows in Crotona Park are always live, true hip hop in the air and its all love. Heads really gotta go out cause the park jams is what its all about!!!
