WHAT IS HIP HOP and WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?
- KRS - ONE Hip Hop Icon, Author, Activist and Hip Hop Culture Scholar
Hip Hop was created to be a culture of pride in its ability to have fun while
simultaneously empowering, educating, informing & uplifting to the community
and ALL who embraced it.
Hip Hop is a vibrant community of leaders and artists dedicated to achieving excellence, embracing change, fostering positive living, encouraging growth, and challenging norms. It celebrates life, creativity, unity, and uniqueness, all united by the common goal of instigating LOVE in individuals, communities, and society at large. This definition is rooted in the values and vision set by the African Americans who created it and the communities that showcased their unique artistic genius within it.
