Hip Hop Culture, what can I say, the most beautifullest thing in the world is just like that, Hip Hop has touched every corner of the globe, has changed hearts, saved lives and has inspired millions of kids, young adults and even the elderly to be the best they can be in any given moment, from generation to generation, Hip Hop creates stories and experiences in folks that are so immense.
Born in the one of the most impoverished and underserved places in the U.S. at the time, the south Bronx made something out of nothing and sparked a movement that would change the world forever. Hip Hop is more than just a genre of music, it is a way of life, a mode of thinking, how one perceives their environment, it is empowering, invigorating and brings out the best in us.
This is probably the #1 Top Moment in 2018 for Hip Hop Culture! So recently the Minnesota Hip Hop native Win Nevaluze aka Sir Nevaluze, hailing from North Minneapolis, dropped his rendition of the Migos current smash hit song “Walk It Like I Talk It” featuring Drake. Heres where it gets creative, Win Nevaluze decided to remix their song with the words from the Dr. Suess book “Wocket In My Pocket”. As he performs the song, Win Nevaluze actually is reading through the classic Dr. Suess children’s book.. yes he is really flipping through those pages!
I landed in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday and from there it was just a blur of flashing lights. I met with directors, movie stars, worked a red carpet event, met fashion photographers and dance choreographers, producers of shows, and Deejays all while attending VIP Social Networking Mixers.

In mid-December, news came that Pam the Funkstress had passed away. Although many of us knew that Pam had been in the hospital we all thought she'd pull through. I don't think it dawned on any of us that she might not make it, so when we got the news it was a complete shock.
When I saw it on my facebook timeline, I immediately tagged others and news was already spreading quickly. Many people suggested some kind of tribute or fundraiser and this prompted the B-Girl Be family to begin talking about a celebration for Pam in Minneapolis. We had brought Pam in to deejay a number of times for the B-Girl Be Festival and also for other events over the years.
