1520 Sedgwick Avenue is known to many as the birthplace of hip-hop. Though, no true location can claim such a title, Sedwick Avenue represents a landmark in hip-hop culture. The purpose of this blog is to capture these key landmarks in hip-hop culture and question their relevancy in their time and in ours. From the stems of the genre from rock & roll and the blues to 808’s and auto-tune, each generation will be dissected and assessed. Through Sedgwick Avenue, we hope to instill a greater understanding and appreciation of hip-hop culture that our readers did not comprehend before.
