Legendary DJ Scott La Rock Has A Street In Kingsbridge Named In His Honor

This upcoming August 27 marks 30 years since Scott La Rock (aka Scott Sterling) was shot and killed in the Bronx, New York. A founding member and DJ/producer of Boogie Down Productions, Scott lived to enjoy just one album release, 1987’s classic Criminal Minded. The musical partner of KRS-One, the cousin of D-Nice, and the friend to Just-Ice, Greg Nice, DJ Red Alert and others was one of the first Hip-Hop artists to die amidst rising fame, and helped celebrate the borough’s (especially the South Bronx) impact on Hip-Hop 15 years after the culture’s celebrated birth.
