DJ Funktual & DJ Kool Herc at Beat Street Screening 2/20/2013

Last night in the lobby for Beat Street I come across DJ Kool Herc and find myself walking directly toward him. We shake hands and begin to talk when suddenly his necklace pops and the beads start rushing to the floor. Quickly, his sister Cindy Campbell and I each grab one loose string and next thing i know I am tying his necklace back together. Ridiculous moment.
