Since the early days of the block parties in New York’s Bronx, hip hop has become a global phenomenon. A culture which has developed over the years representing all people irrespective of ethnic background, nationality, gender or religion. While Hip Hop Music has gone on to become a multi-billion selling industry over the years, and has fragmented into various genres, the real spirit of hip hop culture remains within the various elements, practiced by those with an understanding of its principles.
The events will reflect the true meaning of hip hop and takes it back to its roots – at its best live with all elements in full effect.
