Reginald F. Lewis Museum celebrates hip-hop


— On Saturday, October 4, 2014, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum located at 830 Pratt Street in downtown Baltimore, will be dedicated to lovers of hip-hop!

The organization, Curators of Hip Hop is hosting this FREE event that is open to the public and I am truly honored to be a member of the discussion panel. There will be performances by local independent artists from the DMV area and a special screening of the documentary “The Curators of Hip Hop.” The documentary is a tale of five emcees whose stories demonstrate the power of dedication leading to endless possibilities. Starring Ahmad Lewis, Prie, Matt Reeves, Logic, and Dee-1. The documentary follows the lives of these five “dreamers” looking to make it in the hip hop world. Through extensive interviews with the artists, “The Curators of Hip Hop”verifies that the style isn’t dead, or even close to it. Post-screening live performance by Skarr Akbar.

If you’re an emcee, fashion designer, break dancer, tagger, or just serious about hip-hop, you need to be at this event. It will be an informative, truthful discussion about the culture of music that’s been around for over 30 years. Founding member of Curators of Hip Hop, Jimmie Thomas said, “This is a movement that we want to take to the DMV area to educate the masses about hip-hop the history, culture, and being independent of the machine and take back the sound that is ours.”
