Old-school hip-hop, graffiti, and sneaker battles. That was the scene, back in the day, when Takeout Tuesday would take over now-defunct South Beach party spot Buck 15. “At the time, old-school hip-hop wasn’t really being played that much at the clubs,” recalls DJ Keen One, the party boy who started it all. “The vibe of the party was based on old-school hip-hop, soul, funk, graffiti, art, and sneaker battles,” where shoe collectors would show off their limited-edition kicks and impress the crowd with their sole knowledge. “Hip-hop heads, skateboarders, B-boys, B-girls, artists, models — it was a big mix,” the DJ says, describing the crowd at the weekly rager, which originally ran from the mid 2000s to 2011. “That was the cool thing about the party. It brought together a lot of people who wouldn’t typically hang out.” Now after a four-year hiatus, the original gangsters of the 2000s hip-hop scene are relaunching Takeout Tuesday at Coyo Taco's Tequila Bar in Wynwood. The rebooted party, Keen One says, will be “an outlet for bringing back the DJs who helped preserved that old-school hip-hop culture and music.”
