First Annual Rapathon held in New York
On Saturday, May 12, the Global Artists Association in partnership with New York radio station HOT 97, Turner Network, and Converse attempted to break a Guinness World Record with the first annual Rapathon.
The Rapathon was held at the Hip-Hop Center Culture Center in Harlem, New York.
The Rapathon consisted of approximately 100 old school and new school artists and DJ’s, who took turns performing over a span of 24 hours to create the world’s longest, ongoing rhyme session.
No cursing and abusive or foul language was allowed in the lengthy rhyme session.
Tickets were priced at $100 to raise funds to keep the venue – the Hip-Hop Culture Center – open all year round.
DrJays.com were in attendance and we were amazed at the amount of young talent in hip-hop today staying true to the music’s essence. Keep hope alive!
