Episode Summary

EDIT
Since the early 1970’s the origins of Hip-Hop have elevated from the barrios of the South Bronx to Madison Avenue and all over the world. The mystique of the music and culture has been that you can make and create art with the ingenuity of a pin and pad of paper. Emcees would become wordsmiths and create a rhyming experience that would eventually take ordinary people off the streets of a place of gangs, drugs, and violence.

One of few Hip-Hop festivals that takes place here in the states is the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Family Day presented by Brooklyn Bodega. Founded by Wes Jackson in 2006, he and his diverse staff have been on the front lines producing and keeping the legacy of Hip-Hop to fans all over the world via their website What I’ve really enjoyed about Brooklyn Bodga’s scope on the music is that they bring a more intellectual and historical view to the music unlike the negative images that continue to perpetuate the music. BB’s events during the entire year bring out all the true Hip-Hop headsmoreless
