After finally getting a moment to process all the excitement and growth in our coalition network we had from Juneteenth, we are ready to give the community of Mankato another family friendly event. The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition is very excited to curate another authentic and memorable experience with each and every one of you!
We have so many things to be proud of for our August 17th event and all thanks to the support of businesses and organizations in Mankato as well as artists from both our community and nearby areas. If you have been to one of our community engagements before, you will notice a couple enhancements for next Saturday. We have added a little more variety in the programming, and in doing so, we want to hear your thoughts about it.
"When We Ryde" highlights artist Skruface The Gooch (GodBodyMusik) and his comrades Juice Gilla (Zodiak MC) and Tank (True Breed MC). They are different Emcees from 3 different lifestyles where music brings us along with them on 2 different accords.. Hip Hop and BikeLife. In the song they give you the breakdown of what these lifestyles encompass.
The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition is very excited to announce a new partnership that has formed with Twin Rivers Council for the Arts. After speaking with Noelle Lawton, Executive Director for Twin Rivers Council for the Arts (TRCA), it was evident that we had similar goals in mind for our community.
“We are excited about our partnership with The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition as our missions, to shift actions and attitudes, are in direct alignment. The arts are a powerful tool to break down barriers and build bridges to deeper understanding and compassion for each other.”
- Executive Director, Noelle Lawton
After a second wonderful and successful Juneteenth, just like last year, all the participants wanted to continue nurturing the collective energy that was generated at this gathering. So once again, just as we did last year, The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition will be continuing to cultivate the collaborative efforts from this now annual event, which we are truly honored to be a part of developing.
Currently MN-HHC Mankato is seeking all age performers, supporters, sponsors, vendors, and volunteers for our 2019 Summer/Fall Monthly Event Series.
Rain or shine, the Minnesota weather was not going to prohibit The MN Hip Hop Coalition from bringing Edu-tainment to the people of Mankato. This was evident as volunteers showed up 4 hours prior to the event asking what they could do to assist in the set-up process. As well as performers calling to confirm they were on their way, but running a little late due to the rain. Everyone involved from the planning committee, to volunteers, to local black owned business owners, and the artists, were ready to experience a memorable cultural event.
