Tour Overview:
The 2016 “My Legacy” Tour is a collaborative effort that features emerging and up-and-coming musicians, tech specialist and filmmakers of today, in an effort to inspire young people by showing them examples of diverse African Americans who are successful in the creation of positive and uncompromising art.

This year, we aim to specifically educate, build and create new collaborative strategies around preserving hip hop culture, building institutions through advocating for in increase in independence and entrepreneurship within urban culture.

Why Legacy?
At Curators of Hip Hop, we feel it is extremely important to plan and build strong foundations for Hip Hop culture that can stand for generations.   By constantly learning and innovating, we as a collective, there are unmet opportunities to be gained by the strategic leadership and collaboration.

We understand that ‘Legacy’ is something far larger than Hip Hop but also comprehend that Hip Hop culture has the potential  to connect to the youth who will ultimately lead the future in some way, shape or form.

“Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable” – Renaissance Tour Recap

 

20304504271_0abe65a578_o

“Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.” This Kenyan proverb embraces the value of collective strength within unity.  This saying is something that really explains our newest efforts in the DMV region.   We recently conducted the “Renaissance Tour” which is a continuation of the “Urban Renaissance” events we started producing a few years ago. This tour covered the cities of Baltimore, Washington, D.C ,Richmond, VA and Charlotte, NC.

Although the DMV artists reside so close to one another, it’s very rare for them to collaborate and tour together on a consistent basis. By joining forces with local ambassadors in each city, we plan to make this a very regular habit.

When we started the tour in Baltimore, the city was also in the national headlines for very negative reasons.  On the very same day as our event, the public was told that Federal agents were being sent to the city to join with local homicide police and “quell the unprecedented violence.”

While this was being presented to the public, we had a very different type of vibe at a venue called Metro Gallery.  There we had RaTheMC (DC), Joey Gallo (Richmond) and Baltimore’s own ELLIS perform along with local dance family – BMORETHANDANCE.

With the help of our ambassadors in every city, each event was soulful, peaceful and inspiring for the Hip Hop community.  Over time, this ‘mobile renaissance”  will become more newsworthy in the headlines and by building bridges we will one day create more positive changes in the cities we visit to reverse, minimize or even help end some of the adverse circumstances we now know of.
This is MOVEMENT and will require many people to create more momentum.

Stay tuned for more updates on upcoming tours! If you’re interested in helping us bring a showcase to your city, please email us at curatorsofhiphop@gmail.com
