New York rap veterans Nas, Mobb Deep, CNN, Marley Marl and MC Shan have plenty to celebrate as reports claim their Queensbridge Houses have remained shooting-free for 12 months.

According to reports, the community has avoided gunfire erupting for an entire year.

In addition city-funded security in the form of lights, cameras and police protection, a coalition called 696 Queensbridge is credited with keeping the peace. The community-based program is comprised of six members who are helping to secure the 96 buildings that make up the Queensbridge Houses, made famous by the hip-hop artist Nas, who rapped about growing up there.
