ABOUT THIS EVENT:
2014 marks the 44th Anniversary of Black August which was first organized to honor fallen freedom fighters, George and Jonathan Jackson, James McClain, William Christmas, Khatari Gaulden, and sole survivor of the August 7th, 1970, Courthouse Slave Rebellion, Ruchell Cinque Magee.
With this being one of the many developing foundations and precursors to the birth of Hip Hop Culture, The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition and our Active Member Organization Twin Cities Save The Kids are organizing with local Hiphoppas to hold a Black August Kick-Off Event to remember Black Liberationists and Political Prisoners throughout our history.
Our aim as Hip Hop has always been a multi-skilled, multicultural, multi-faith, multiracial people committed to the establishment and development of peace. This is why the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, aka U.N.E.S.C.O, has signed the International Hip Hop Declaration of Peace as the lifestyle or cultural extension of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
As part of Brewhouse Recording Studios becoming a MN-HHC Active Business Member, they have generously offered a donation of $16,500 for free recording time to the Minnesota Hip Hop Community during the month of June 2014, for their “Grand Re-Opening”. During the entire month of June, the Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition will be providing FREE recording sessions, 12 hours each day, 7 days a week, to Hiphoppas who live in Minnesota.
Here is the recap from the 2014 Hip Hop Appreciation Week (HHAW) and the international work that is being spearheaded out of Minnesota to preserve, cultivate, and advance Hip Hop Culture globally. The following links are our key historic Hip Hop moments in Minnesota for 2014 that was developed as a way to help Hiphoppas all over the world!
The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition is proud to announce our new Active Business Member Brewhouse Recording Studio!!
Brewhouse has been a studio since 1954, making it one of the longest continuously running recording studios in the United States. Brewhouse is owned by the Lead Engineer Rob Genedak who has worked on countless projects for some of Minneapolis’s most established musicians, most notably the Purple one.. Prince.
Studio engineer Zac Harding and manager Thomas Buchanan are currently working out of Brewhouse to attract new talent and help revitalize a recording community within the younger generation. For this reason Brewhouse recognizes the importance that Hip Hop Culture has in these younger generations, having a unified Minnesota Hip Hop Community, and being an Active Business Member in the community.
Here is a short list of the many talented musicians who have worked out of the Facility:
Happy Hip Hop Appreciation Week!!
This goes out to every single Hiphoppa in the state of Minnesota. We are proud to announce that our great state has officially made international Hip Hop history! For the first time in United States history, and Hiphop (consciousness) history, our Hip Hop (culture) has been recognized by a State Governor through an official State Proclamation, presented by The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition, recognizing Hip Hop Appreciation Week that was signed by Governor Mark Dayton and Secretary Of State Mark Ritchie.
We will be holding a Hip Hop Ceremony at the Minnesota State Capital this Friday May 23rd, 2014 at 12:00pm to honor this monumental occasion with our fellow Hiphoppas in Minnesota. We will be holding a large photo opportunity with any local media and press for those in attendance of this historic moment.
