Born and raised on that Rap, Hip Hop has become the love of a lifetime for us. For most of the team, in Elementary and Middle School it was about the tagging and dance, by High School it was about the turntable and a mic. By the University, it became about organizing shows and concert production.
Many of us cut are teeth organizing small underground Hip Hop and Spoken Word events, but soon progressed to booking larger shows at +1,000 cap venues and bringing to town legendary artists Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), The Roots, The Fugees, Outkast, Goodie Mob, Maseo of De La Soul, and Saul Williams among many others.
We look back at these early events with great pride, but also as a marking point in revealing our strengths for production work, and mobilizing folks.
Although no longer a principal business activity, we do co-sponsor, invest and provide technical support to shows and concerts for some of our favorite artists when they come to town.
