With controversy swirling around the Minnesota Vikings, one Retired Professional Athlete and Hall of Famer is taking a gamble on leadership and The Moose. Former MN Viking Carl Eller in conjunction with SubZero Collective, L3C, and The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition is launching "Moose 81 Weekend" this Friday, October 10th, 2014!
The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition would like to thank you for your interest and support for the many things that we have developing for all MN Hiphoppas. Currently The MN-HHC is opening up FREE submissions from MN Hiphoppas who would like to present their artwork and craft in a different light. We are seeking YOUR talent (music, artwork, photos, custom videos, scrapbook items, and more) to contribute for this project that will help expose a wider variety of what our MN Hip Hop Culture has to offer!
With October being the National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, our goal now is to not only raise awareness about the importance of Hip Hop Culture on the development of peace, but to also show our truest desires for sustainable and peaceful change in our communities. We will start with the art and continue in to the lifestyle, culture, and movement side of Hip Hop with this project. We will also be securing radio airplay with college radio stations throughout the entire state of Minnesota for this album project.
The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition is proudly announcing a brand new event series called Breaks & Lakes that focuses on “Bringing the hottest Twin Cities Dj’s to your neck of the woods”. This event series will also bring more Authentic Hip Hop Culture throughout the entire state of Minnesota to further our mission to provide Edu-tainment (educational entertainment) as well as network with thinkers, artists, activists, and community leaders throughout Minnesota.
James Everett, President of Subzero Collective, pointed out “just last week I declared that there was something funny going on with the lack of lawn signs and no Get Out The Vote (GOTV) money creating jobs for local non-profits, canvassers, etc”. He went on to state that “the GOP has made its move to ISOLATE Governor Dayton from the African American voter base that the people; U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, Sen. Bobby Jo Champion, Sen. Jeff Hayden, State Sen. Bill Davis, etc.; in the Community Action investigation represent. Most of the GOTV funding is coming thru only the Keith Ellison office this time. How do people think this is effecting the election?!".
If you didn’t already know, the 6th Annual Groundbreaker Battle is just another great example of Minnesota’s vibrant Hip Hop Culture. This annual celebration was created by The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts as an opportunity for the Hip Hop Community to showcase the benefit and value of Breakin (Break Dancing) and all 9 Elements of the Hip Hop Culture.
