Because Hip-Hop is a reality that transcends the boundaries of the world of music and exists as itself on this planet. It is a culture, a movement, a nation. So what happens when our communities are under attack? WE FIGHT BACK AND IT BECOMES BIGGER THAN HIP-HOP!

Join us Saturday 4/21 2pm-10pm

Everyone apart of this event lives in Arizona & California we could of brought out our allies that we have nationwide but we feel we have more than enough talent here that represents REAL HIP-HOP. In addition we live here; we live the hate that happens here. IT IS UP TO US! To make the change.
