Boogie Down Bronx
I used to hate it when my ex-wife Jennifer Lopez mentioned the "boogie down Bronx."

No, wait a minute--I'm the one guy she never married.

"Boogie Down Bronx" is an oldie, as hip-hop terms go. Was this coined by the song "Boogie Down (Bronx)" (1984) by Man Parrish?

27 March 1991, New York Times, pg. C20:
Except for three years in Orlando, Fla., Mr. Snipes spent his childhood in what he calls "the boogie down Bronx," neighborhoods such as Washington Avenue and 148th Street or 167th and Boston Post Road.

20 October 1996, New York Times, pg. CY11:
Propped on the paper towel dispenser are some of his own recordings including "Lyrical King from the Boogie Down Bronx" (Sleeping Bag/Fresh Records, 1987).
(T La Rock--ed.)
