About this Program

The Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History and the Hip-Hop50 ATL Consortium in collaboration with the City of Atlanta’s Office of the Mayor host the first in a summer-long film screening series to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop. The second screening in the series features Scratch on July 13th. The post-screening discussion for Scratch will be led by Scratch Out Loud DJ Experience Co-founder, E. Hall.

Scratch - A feature-length documentary film about hip-hop DJing, otherwise known as turntablism. From the South Bronx in the 1970s to San Francisco now, the world's best scratchers, beat-diggers, party-rockers, and producers wax poetic on beats, breaks, battles, and the infinite possibilities of vinyl.

Post-screening will be moderated by Scratch Out Loud along with special guest, Mr. Collipark. Scratch Out Loud's purpose is to preserve the art of DJing and turntablism while passing along the art of Hip-Hop and music culture to future generations.

Mr. Collipark is a Hip-Hop producer and DJ from Atlanta, Georgia, who has worked with artists like Soulja Boy, Ying Yang Twins, and Bubba Sparxxx. He is also the founder and president of his own record label, ColliPark Music, which he started in 1999. His stage name comes from his hometown of College Park, Georgia. He has won several awards for his production and songwriting skills, including a BMI “Songwriter of the Year” award in 2007 and a Grammy nomination in 2008. He is also known as DJ Smurf and has released several albums and mixtapes under that name.
