About QB

You love to hear the story, again and again
of how it all got started, way back when
the monument.. is right in your face..
sit and listen for a while to the name of the place..”
– MC Shan “The Bridge” (produced by Marley Marl)

Those immortal words said in 1985 by MC SHAN kicked off a musical legacy that so far has lasted 30 years. Taking up only 6 blocks of New York City, the Queensbridge Houses housing project, known to locals as “Queensbridge Projects”, is the largest housing project in the United States and has produced countless hip-hop legends and classic songs.  Starting with pioneers like Marley Marl, Roxanne Shante, MC Shan, Craig G, Poet and Tragedy and later nurturing the street-savvy skills of Nas, Mobb Deep and Cormega, Queensbridge is credited as the origin of some of the all-time best MCs lyrically, technically, and conceptually.
