LOVE Hip Hop History Jam

On July 30, from 4-8 PM LOVE is throwing a Hip Hop History jam in Union Sq, Somerville, MA (outdoor in the plaza on Somerville Ave). (Mapquest directions here.) Fun-ded by the Somerville Arts Council as part of its Arts Union Series, we will be bringing together some incredible talent to re-present the history of hip hop in an uplifting community celebration. The event will be hosted by Lyrical and Brick Casey and will include demonstrations by the amazing LOSST UNNOWN and members of the Boston hip hop legends the FLOOR LORDS. DJ C and DJ Flack (Beat Research/Mashit), DJ Yamin (Beats Not Bombs), DJ Def Rock (of Monstamind/Megabug fame), DJ Drama (Elemental Compounds) and Wayne & Wax will be providing the beats. The youth/activist collaborative Critical Breakdow and the Massive Records Family will be there too. The evening will include a series of thematic sets revolving around 6 DJ sets representing one era of Hip Hop history each: Funk&Soul, Jamaican Roots, Birth of Hip Hop, Old/Middle School, Golden Age, Back to the Future. During each DJ set, local MC’s, breakdancers, writers and DJ’s will reinterpret these eras thereby uniting the original 4 elements in an evening of uplifting community “edutainment”.

In the words of the Godfather, "Peace, unity, LOVE, and having fun." What more can you say? Here are some links to get you in the mood!

Great blog Pace! I just wanted to leave some words to let you know I came thru.

I have a hip hop drums site and I was poking around for more information on hip hop drums and saw your site along the way.

Well, keep up the fine work and take care.
