QUEENS (WABC) -- Hip-hop turns 50 this year and several events are happening around the Tri-State to mark that anniversary.

The Queens Public Library held a panel Tuesday evening featuring legendary rapper, author, and producer Chuck D from "Public Enemy."

He talked about hip-hop's impact on global culture.

Chuck D said at the event that the future of hip-hop is in good hands.

"Hip-hop in its 50th year, you've got accountable, responsible voices that have been doing it a long time such as Ralph, and anywhere that I'm able to plug in and continue that is the best because the future of hip-hop looks bright and big up for 50 more years," Chuck D said.

Famed VJ Ralph McDaniels hosted the event.

McDaniels says it was part of an initiative that will run through August.
