Most of todays radio hip-hop is like a value meal from KFC deep-fried, controversial, and ultimately unhealthy. Tired of watching the community gorge itself on garbage, activist and event organizer Tony Muhammed is offering a nutritious and appetizing alternative. This years two-day Organic Hip-Hop Conference is themed Music, Culture, and Nutricide. Renowned lecturer, historian, and holistic wellness expert Dr. Llaila O. Afrika will be the events headliner.
The conference will deal with diet in terms of food, in terms of the kind of music that we listen to, and in terms of the kind of culture were cultivating in our community, Muhammed explains. Local rappers Mecca, Omniscient, and the legendary Society will drop knowledge, and DJs Snowhite and Utopia will drop beats. The highlight of todays event will be the first Hip-Hop Film Festival, which will feature screenings of La Fabri-K (The Cuban Hip-Hop Factory), Kidnappings, and a sneak peek at the documentary Bling.
