........The live stream can be viewed at Rapacon's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/rapacondjcon), with broadcasts scheduled throughout the entire day.

"I look forward to once again supporting the community activities of Mount Vernon, New York," says Shefik. "DJ-Con has set the stage this year to remind us of our musical roots," adds Toni Knight. "Those of us that love and respect hip-hop for not only being a genre of music, but a complete lifestyle and culture, have come to appreciate House music in the same way. We pay homage to the original hip-hop DJs - DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, and Grand Wizzard Theodore - for helping to ignite a culture. We must also respect House music originators - Frankie Knuckles and Mr. Fingers - for their contributions."
