NEW YORK – On Saturday, March 31, 2018, Toyota will turn its focus from cars to stars at the New York International Auto Show as New York’s Legendary Hip-Hop Artists Doug E. Fresh and DJ Kid Capri will take center stage on the Toyota Live Stage together for a rare performance. DJ Kid Capri – the most crowd-hyping entertainer – will kick-off the set bringing people to their feet with his high energy approach to spinning music. Doug E. Fresh, the Original Human Beat Box, will join Kid and take the audience on a musical journey back to the 80’s with his note-perfect imitations of drum machines, effects, and samples of hip-hop classics. Doug’s sound, like the Toyota brand, transcends language and culture moving people both young and old.
Doug E. Fresh, a native of Barbados, was raised in New York and feels a special bond to returning home to perform on opening day of the New York International Auto Show mixing Hip-Hop and cars. Doug says, “Hip-Hop is supposed to uplift and create, to educate people on a larger level and to make a change. And, we love to listen to music in our rides. So why not turn up the volume live on stage with Toyota.”
