"We can come from our own particular point of view and lay it down. We should not be throwing verbal rocks at each other. We're all responsible to continue the growth of Hip Hop."-
"MCing, DJing, break-dancing, and graffiti writing. Other elements include beatboxing, hip hop fashion, and slang. Since first emerging in the South Bronx, hip hop culture has spread around the world. When hip hop music first began to emerge, it was based around disc jockeys who created rhythmic beats by looping breaks (small portions of songs emphasizing a percussive pattern) on two turntables, which is now more commonly referred to as sampling. This was later accompanied by "rap" (a rhythmic style of chanting or poetry more formally in 16 bar measures or time frames) and beatboxing, a vocal technique mainly used to imitate percussive elements of the music and various technical effects of hip hop DJs." -wikpedia
The second week in may visits the foundations of a culture, that exceeded far past the boundaries of a sub-culture for the last 30 years. Monday gives insight to the ediface of the new hip hop museum, located in new york:
"For at least 15 years, the New York City community, as well as an international hip-hop fan base, has sought to establish an institution that celebrates and commemorates the accomplishments of the various professionals who have helped to pave the way for the development, progression and regional/global expansion of the hip-hop industry. The Board of Governors for the National Museum of Hip-Hop, a museum organization that has been chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, has responded to this by arranging for the development of this facility."-
-Peep info from recent media coverage, and a social discourse from "the teacha" himself live at the museum, discussing the institution and current artists role.
