“In this great future you can't forget your past.”-


"Hip Hop which is a culture or a lifestyle started in the late 1960’s and the Official Birthday of Hip Hop is November 12, 1974.
Hip-hop music was first introduced at Bronx located in New York City by a Jamaican DJ, named Clive Campbell a.k.a “Kool Herc”(who was born in 1955 at Kingston, Jamaica).
Hip hop music and rap are two inseparable terms and are used synonymously. The word “rap” was derived in the 1960’s, from a slang word that basically meant conversation. Rap is speaking up rhythmically in rhymes with style and is generally along with beats. Rap also represents the recording aspects of hip hop."
The history of hip-hop music can be classified into various categories like hip-hop music, hip-hop dancing, hip-hop art and hip-hop fashion.-

Any historian of culture, specifically in hip-hop would note its humble origins. From the late keith "guru" elam to countless personalites and contributors, monday hosts a double edged approach to the stream of hip hop music and culture; acknowledgement of some of the sung hero's/heroin's and their progressive moves in the modern day. We note today acts as my brother cee knowledge and the digable planet collective, who just finished a european tour, and current projects by prince po(1/2) of organized konfusion. We see these artists in progressive movement, and some making triumphant return; in some cases to show contrast between the music of the years of their emergence, to the modern day industry and pop culture. We feature recent performances of digable planets, and rakim of his recent lp "the seventh seal" along with a feature track.

The Seventh Seal is the third solo
studio album by American emcee Rakim. Released November 17, 2009 after several delays on Rakim's own Ra Records, TVM, and SMC Recordings and distributed through Fontana and Universal Music Group.[11] Considered a comeback album after a ten-year gap between releases, the album features the 2 singles, Holy Are You which was released on July 14, 2009, and Walk These Streets which was released on October 7, 2009. It features production from several renowned hip hop artists, including Nottz, Needlz, Jake One, and Nick Wiz -
