About this Program

We will highlight those who laid the foundation for Hip Hop musically and culturally, particularly those who shaped the genre in NYC. We will honor the ways that past generations have paved the way and what the moguls learned/taught us in the process. Panel discussions will encourage cross-generational dialogue to address how generations past and present connect, where they disconnect, the unique perspectives they each bring to the genre, and how they can work together to advance noteworthy causes.
