      The Formation of the Supreme Hip Hop Council

      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!


      NEW YORK-APRIL 20TH 2010 - The Temple of Hip Hop in association with the Universal Zulu Nation is hosting the first in a series of open discussions regarding Hip Hop and its cultural preservation today. Summarizing the event KRS One wrote: “The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the formation of a supreme Hip Hop council entrusted to govern the proper handling of Hip Hop’s cultural resources. As Hip Hop’s culture keepers, when we say that we are ‘preserving Hip Hop’, we must realize that we are preserving actual people with actual ideas. The methodology used to preserve real people and their original ideas is much different from the methodology used to preserve products, objects and artifacts”

      At this first meeting, pioneering Hip Hop icons will discuss the meaning and purpose of the ‘council’ and record the advice of Hip Hop’s founding architects regarding the building of Hip Hop’s actual preservation complex. With Kool DJ Herc, Afrika Bambaataa and Grand Master Flash united and leading a council of nine representing an official Hip Hop governing body, Hip Hop can now protect itself from certain corporate abuses and begin issuing licenses and other credentials that teach and authorize people to handle Hip Hop’s art, history and world image properly.

      In a press statement today KRS One explained that “a supreme governing council for Hip Hop’s preservation and further development is long over-due. One of the main reasons Hip Hop looks the way that it does in mass media is because it is unregulated. Corporations and individuals of all sorts take what they want from Hip Hop and use Hip Hop in any derogatory way they choose. Who gave the colleges and universities the official curriculum and authority to teach Hip Hop in their institutions? How are the true pioneers of Hip Hop protected from even further exploitation when corporations and institutions handle the history and cultural techniques of Hip Hop? What responsible body governs Hip Hop’s cultural resources”?

      First female MC, Pebblie Poo will host today’s event and lead the discussion. Confirmed guests include; Kool DJ Herc, the Cold Crush Brothers, the Treacherous Three, The Furious Five, the TATs Cru, Funky Four plus one more, Doug E. Fresh, KRS-One, DJ Break Out, Chief Rocker Busy Bee, Disco Wiz, Grand Wizard Theodore, DJ Jazzy Jay, Love Bug Starski, Ernie Panicolli, Joe Conzo and a whole host of others who have been documenting Hip Hop’s culture from before its beginning. This group, represented by nine council members, will form the Universal Federation for the Preservation of Hip Hop. AD from the legendary Cold Crush Brothers said; “this is a monumental day for Hip Hop’s culture, it is good to see everyone getting together for this positive cause”.

      President Obama Proclaims June African-American Music Appreciation Month

      “Music can tell a story, assuage our sorrows, provide blessing and redemption, and express a soul’s sublime and powerful beauty. It inspires us daily, giving voice to the human spirit…..”

      “…..For many, including the African-American community, music unites individuals through a shared heritage. During African-American Music Appreciation Month, we celebrate the extraordinary legacy of African-American singers, composers, and musicians, as well as their indelible contributions to our Nation and our world.

      Throughout our history, African-American music has conveyed the hopes and hardships of a people who have struggled, persevered and overcome. Through centuries of injustice, music comforted slaves, fueled a cultural renaissance, and sustained a movement for equality. Today, from the shores of Africa and the islands of the Caribbean to the jazz clubs of New Orleans and the music halls of Detroit, African-American music reflects the rich sounds of many experiences, cultures, and locales.

      African-American musicians have created and expanded a variety of musical genres, synthesizing diverse artistic traditions into a distinctive soundscape. The soulful strains of gospel, the harmonic and improvisational innovations of jazz, the simple truth of the blues, the rhythms of rock and roll, and the urban themes of hip-hop all blend into a refrain of song and narrative that traces our Nation’s history.

      These quintessentially American styles of music have helped provide a common soundtrack for people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, and have joined Americans together not just on the dance floor, but also in our churches, in our public spaces, and in our homes. This month, we honor the talent and genius of African-American artists who have defined, shaped, and enriched our country through music, and we recommit to sharing their splendid gifts with our children and grandchildren.

      NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2010 as African-American Music Appreciation Month. I call upon public officials, educators, and the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate activities and programs that raise awareness and foster appreciation of African-American music.

      IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand ten, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-fourth.”


      Peace be upon you

      HIP HOP APPRECIATION WEEK May 17th - 23rd 2010


      VENICE, CA. - May 13th 2010 – KRS-One launches Hip Hop Appreciation Week with a “Gospel of Hip Hop” lecture and book signing from 5pm-7pm on May 20th 2010 at The Air-Conditioned Supper Club located at 625 Lincoln Blvd. Venice, CA. 90291. ....

      Every third week in May is Hip Hop Appreciation Week. “Hiphoppas” have observed this week as a time set aside to acknowledge and appreciate the existence of Hip Hop. First announced by the Temple of Hip Hop in 1998, Hip Hop Appreciation Week unites the Hip Hop community around its principles of peace, love, unity and safely having fun. Despite the irresponsible handling of Hip Hop in mass media, Hip Hop Appreciation Week acknowledges the original intent of Hip Hop and urges those who work in any area of media to upgrade their presentation of productive Rap music, movies and writings to the public.

      During Hip Hop Appreciation Week, serious Hiphoppas are advised to....

      Give the next person the right of way. Allow others to pass you.

      Donate your skill to someone who cannot afford it.

      Give the loose change of your purchases to the person behind you in line.....

      Be quick to compliment and slow to criticize. Perform forgiveness. ....

      Give 10% of your salary to your child’s teacher, to your teacher, or to a teacher.

      Offer assistance to a neighbor; clean their kitchen, bathroom, etc, baby-sit, tutor, etc.

      Study and teach the culture, arts, history and philosophies of Hip Hop.....

      Talk to young people about the images and performances of today’s mainstream rappers and DJs.....

      Acknowledge and celebrate the person or place that introduced you to Hip Hop.....

      Hip Hop Appreciation Week is an opportunity to be a supporter of Hip Hop’s culture, not just an exploiter of Hip Hop’s culture”, explained KRS One; ordained as Hip Hop’s Master Teacha by Zulu Nation. “The true preservation of Hip Hop is the preservation of its people, not just its products and artifacts. This is why Hip Hop Appreciation Week is so important to Hip Hop’s further development; it is because Hip Hop Appreciation Week is an event that gives average everyday Hiphoppas an opportunity to make some money, teach some young people, and enjoy some real Hip Hop; basically preserving themselves”.....
