International hip-hop, we see you…
Acclaimed DJ/Producer/Rapper Pete Rock
Here in the US we often get bogged down with the sentiment “hip-hop is dying/dead.”
Internationally, hip-hop continues to thrive in vastly different communities.
In many ways, Americans should take inspiration from the global passion for the music and culture, just as people overseas initially took inspiration from hip-hop.
An example of hip-hop’s continuing influence occurs in Sao Paulo, Brazil today (Thursday August 2) with the Mostra de Filmes Hip Hop de São Paulo (São Paulo Hip Hop Film Exhibition), presented by 11th Parallel Worldwide.
Bronx born rap pioneer Pete Rock is a special guest at the event; he’s also featured in Beat Kings, one of the films showing at the event.
So if you’re in Sao Paulo, head down to the CINESESC Theatre. And for all DrJays.com customers living and loving hip-hop worldwide, keep on keepin’ on.
