This will definitely open your mind, that is if you’re open to growth and change. Mos Def couldn’t have found a more impacting time to change his name.

#HipHop History Lesson…

Hip-Hop: A Cultural Odyssey

This weekend don’t miss out on something mayjah!!!!. The opening of,  “Hip-Hop: A Cultural Odyssey” exhibit at The Grammy Museum. Named and fashioned after the book (dropping 2/8/11) bearing the same title, this is one of the first exhibits ever of its kind. The exhibit takes us back in the day (4 DECADES to be exact) and pays homage to the pioneers of  Hip-Hop. On display-LL Cool J’s kangol, Grandmaster Flash’s turntables, original handwritten rhymes by Tupac, and many other artifacts.  This is something that all the youngins need to visit for a rich history lesson.  The exhibit will run until May 5th and sure to make an unprecedented impact on the music community and others. This is such a great reward and compliment, considering that this genre of music was just a passing fad…suckas!!!

All true Hip-Hop heads are sure to represent…I’ll be there in my fat laces and a fuzzy kangol!
