20 Legendary Hip-Hop Concert Moments

The Fantastic Five, Treacherous Three, and More Rock East River Park for Wild Style

Date: 5/1/1982

Pioneering 1983 hip-hop film, Wild Style, was capped by this real-life all-star concert filmed at an outdoor, graffiti-covered amphitheater in East River Park on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The Fantastic Five, Treacherous Three, Double Trouble (wielding Tommy guns), the Rocksteady Crew, Busy Bee Starski, and Rammelzee performed, and Nile Rodgers even showed up to cosign Grandmixer D.St sampling "Good Times." It was only appropriate to end this legendary movie, the first to accurately capture all four elements of hip-hop intertwining in their nascent glory days, with a show that brought everyone together.
