The Hip Hop Culture Center does it again! Recognized for its Hip Hop centric education programs, Sneaker Battles, large flyer collection, and record-breaking Rapathon, the integrated complex brings you Rapathon 3: The Female Takeover.

For the past two years we have assembled over 200 rappers to partake in our most significant event of the year. The Rapathon is a 24-hour cipher that features over 100 rappers who rhyme non stop with no vulgarities. The Hip Hop Culture Center has been successful in mustering a diverse group of individuals including children and adults. In retrospect, the males have always outnumbered the females in past affairs. Our objective this time is to amass over 100 female MC’s with hot lyrics, great energy, and stage presence to continue our record-breaking event.

Women have been a part of hip-hop since the beginning, and its time to take it to the next level. As advocators of Hip Hop, we feel it’s pivotal to create a platform for female MC’s to establish their place in history. Hip Hop rappers like Sha-Rock, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Roxanne Shante, Pebbly Poo, and Queen Latifah, to name a few…..have changed hip-hop's perception of femcees. The Rapathon is a great opportunity to showcase talent as well as build new relationships with emerging artists. To be a participant in the Rapathon, you must be able to rock the mike for 90 seconds straight without any cursing or degrading language. The showcase is open to women of all ages. Be on the lookout for our upcoming event titled “The Influence of Females in Hip Hop”, where we will pay  tribute to artists such as Jean Grae, Salt-N-Pepa, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez, Lil Kim, etc. in addition to the MC’s listed above.

The Hip Hop Culture Center in Harlem is located at 2309 Frederick Douglass Blvd., 2nd Floor of the Magic Johnson Theater in the heart of Harlem, along 125th Street shopping district. It is New York City’s first official permanent Hip Hop exhibit and cultural arts center.
