The rapper is someone that rhymes. You can consider Dr Sues a rapper. You can rhyme cat and rap and you can be considered a rapper.
The MC is someone who either has the party rocker skill or that lyrical skill.
— Big Daddy Kane

The MC posses the great gift of communication. He has the ability to catch everybody’s attention with incredible display of verbal acrobatics and the power to command the crowd.  The MC moves the crowd because they are the master of ceremonies. The voice of the MC emerged from  party music to lyrics about the struggles in the inner city, self awareness, and revolution. Being a MC is an expression of self through words. They are the voice of the culture. 

Joining the MC Showcase roster are talented lyricists Your Old Droog, Taylor Bennet and Nick Grant.  This showcase will display each MCs originality, delivery and lyricism.

The DJ

Well I could jump all over the place, all types of music, as long as the audience I’m playing for wants the vibration.
Giving them that different sound...take them on a musical journey
— Afrika Bambaataa

The DJ is the corner stone of Hip Hop. The DJ is the life of the party as well as the architect for the foundation of Hip Hop. The DJ played the music that influenced the first emcee's to spit on the mike and eventually evolve into the rappers of today. This led to the development of an entire culture, as the DJ played the soundtrack to peoples lives . The DJ is not just a prop at a good party. The DJ was the first Hip Hop artist, he is and will remain the main act at any Hip Hop show.

This ingredient the exhibition is to showcase the DJ's presence, crowd control, crate digging, mixing, versatility, and technical abilities. Here are the DJ's participating.

This was a voice of expression not by choice, but by default for people coming out of a really messed up social economic situation in the seventies and this meant life for people
— Crazy Legs

Dance form birthed from the Hip Hop Culture. The dance form were displayed during the breaks of a record span by the early DJ's, and that is where the Break boys also known as the Bboys took the stage and put on a show. The Bboys put on the show with these originals dance elements such as top rock, footwork, freezers, power moves, and later on added tricks, and flow. The Bboy dance elements are defining gravity, and is constantly testing the limits of the body. The Bboy is an underground community, its around the world, it touches everybody, and everybody is united. 

Breakin’ is the dance element to the culture. A style of street dance that incorporates intricate body movements, coordination, style, and aesthetics, this element was birthed within the culture and was the first form of competition within it. And so we gathered crews from NYC and Alabama to compete in this Hip-Hop element.

From Harlem, New York City we have Litefeet Nation along with one of its founding members, Chrybaby Cozie, will be joining the dance showcase. Chrybaby Cozie teaches Hip-Hop dance in his hometown Harlem, and has most recently performed at the Bad Boy Family Reunion as well as The Today Show.

We also have the Alabama A&M chapter of the huge Chicago dance crew, House Arrest 2 Ch 6 National Championship Dance Team Incorporated coming up to showcase their dance skills.

B. Seth, also an Alabama native, will be showcasing his unique dance style he’s developed throughout the past nine years of merging his self-taught street Hip-Hop style with the skills he’s acquired through taking dances classes of varied styles.  B. Seth has taught at numerous master classes and workshops nationwide and has even created his own dance organization, T.O.Y.S. (Turn On Your Speakers).

Art Gallery    

People was using arts to express messages and codes that people can’t crack today. People change but art is going to be the art
— Swizz Beatz

 Art has always been another form of expression for the culture starting with graffiti, but has transitioned to graphic design, painting, photography, and film making. This ingredient of the culture documents everything that is relevant to our culture, but is tangible and visible

Art has always been central to the Hip-Hop culture’s form of expression.  Beginning with graffiti and transitioning to graphic design, painting, photography, and filmmaking, this element documents everything that is relevant to our culture and has helped to create a historical account of our beautiful and ever-expanding culture.

Ewing Sneakers Photo Gallery

Im a firm believer with getting fresh starts with your feet first...It’s just my love for rubber and leather.
— The Mayor

The kicks became the standard footwear for the youthful hip hop culture in the 70s, and now is the staple of style within the culture. Your whole fit start and end with the kicks. A true sneaker head has the knowledge, volume, exclusivity, rare, and OG kicks. It is not about having the most sneakers. It is about them being fresh and having some sense of value.

For this exhibit we unite two distinct elements of the culture, the sneaker element and the documentation of our culture through photos and videos element, creating a unique storytelling experience.  Photographers Justin Millhouse representing Detroit, MI, Fred Daniels representing Chicago, IL and Andy Mac representing Jersey City, NJ, were each provided with a pair of Limited Edition Ewing Athletic sneakers and will be capturing and displaying the essence of their city and/or cities they have traveled to through their pair of Ewings.
