The Curators of Hip Hop (COHH) are keepers of an online museum of auditory and visual stimulation. We are the constantly changing world of Hip Hop. We are the art, the culture, the politics, the fun, the honesty – the movement. Creativity meets Connectivity.
Founders & Producers Jermaine Fletcher, Jimmie Thomas and A’sia Horne, all collaborated as ambassadors at the rebuilding of the site in 2010. The concept was originally formed in Hawaii while featuring artists from “unique territories” when Jermaine moved there in in 2009. In 2010, the contest expanded to both Los Angeles, CA and Baltimore, MD and beyond when all three partners began expanding the concept.
During that growth, the creation of feature film “The Curators” Volume 1 – A Story of Independence took place. As of 2013/2014, the film has been recognized by The Pan African Festival, A3C Festival and several colleges across the U.S.
Inspired by the motivation to preserve hip hop culture and its artists, COHH tours through the lives of five “dreamers” looking to make a mark in the hip hop world. The accounts are coast-to-coast — and even across water.
Seamlessly interwoven with poetic narration by SK (Shayla Mason), The Curators chronicles MC’s Ahmad Lewis, Matt Reeves, Prie, and Dee-1’s accounts and independent journeys, thus far; and captures and documents the infancy-to-stardom of Def Jam recording artist, Logic.
The COHH work to connect readers to true, universal Hip Hop. The ultimate goal is to present all aspects of the hip-hop culture from different cities, states and countries to the fingertips of every household in the world. These ambassadors’ creative merger, continues to produce top-quality video features and some of the most amazing journalistic skills on the globe. Read, see, hear and watch Hip Hop. From the European graffiti artist, to the up-and-up-coming Hawaiian MC, we’re betting the COHH will change your perspective. If it does, then we’re doing our job.
The COHH aim to provide readers with a realm of documented, unearthed talent that will engage, quench and encourage – enjoy!
