This February will mark the 3rd year of The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition organizing a "28 Days Of Spit" compilation project featuring nothing but Minnesota Hip Hop talent. The last two years have generated a lot of love and support for the project, with '28 Days Of Spit 2015' being released exclusively through our new web platform here. This year MN-HHC will be another hot February with a host of great local Hip-Hop!
WHAT IS 28 DAYS OF SPIT?
28 Days Of 'Real' Spit originally started as a simple concept during a M.A.C. House LLC meeting.. “During the month of February, we as Hip Hop, need to present nothing but 28 days of that Real Shit!” It was then presented to The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition for support and we couldn’t agree more! This simple phrase evokes a serious commitment to present the most forward thinking concepts that specifically help to preserve Real Hip Hop. So this month is strictly about promoting the higher-self in ALL of us and present this evolved way of being in the best light possible.
This original documentation of Real Hip Hop History was donated by Hip Hop Elder ABY of TBB 183rd.
The following is an exclusive letter written by BATCH of The Bronx Boys to Crazy Legs of the Rock Steady Crew regarding the authentic origins of the Element Breakin.
To: Crazy Legs, and for the Rocking (Break Dancin) Community…
Back in 1975 Batch, Shark, and Cash formed a graffiti crew, we named it The Bronx Boys (TBB) since we were indeed from the Bronx, TBB fitted us just right. During those old school days Up Rocking and Graffiti were the two best things for the young people growing up in the Bronx and tagging up was what motivated us the most since it contained the substance of what fame was to become of The Bronx Boys.
We used to Up Rock and sip on a grape tasting wine that only cost us a dollar for a full extra large pint. This wine was called "Night Train". If you was a Graffiti artist back then you'd know what I'm talking about. It got us warmed up, and ready to go bombing (tagging).
As Hiphop History Month came to a close we were fortunate enough to utilize the last Saturday of this celebrated month! As our Hip Hop Community based efforts grew with the energetic Twin Cities Hip Hop Against Police Brutality Benefit Concert we all came together in solidarity and aimed to help send support to Mike Brown's Family, Local Black Artists, a Black Liberation Organization in Ferguson, Save the Kids, along with taking our public spaces back.
