Hip-Hop super-producer Swizz Beatz took some time out of his busy schedule to take us around some of his old haunts ahead of his No Commission Art Fair in The Bronx next week.
The Bronx Hall of Fame resident was also joined by fellow multi-faceted hip-hop artist and New-Yorker A$AP Rocky, riding BMX’s together through the streets of New York and visiting several iconic locations including 1520 Sedgwick Ave, the birthplace of hip-hop.
Due to the success of the debut No Commission art fair collaboration with the BACARDI Untameable House Party series in December at Art Basel Miami, Swizz decided that he wanted to bring it back to where he started his life, The Bronx. No Commission: Art Performs is a multi-day immersive event where art and music collide for showcases by day and night. Featuring musical performances, visual art galleries and immersive installations in the Bronx, No Commission: Art Performs celebrates the artist hustle, where it all began.
No Commission: Art Performs will be held at a waterfront warehouse in the South Bronx, the birthplace of Swizz Beatz and the genesis of global contemporary art forms Hip Hop and Graffiti. BACARDÍ and The Dean Collection are investing in, celebrating and giving back to this community that remains integral to New York’s cultural heritage and hustle.
