Hip Hop Saves Lives & Negus World Present ‘LET’S TAKE IT HIGHER’


This night celebrates hip hop’s African roots and honors the father of hip hop, DJ Kool Herc. He is credited with developing the breakbeat, a percussion solo that originated in indigenous African culture as a way to communicate, worship, and perform ceremonies. Students of the youth program Kids Helping Kids: a Hip Hop Experience open the show. Other performers include Nice and Smooth, a group that embodies hip hop’s culture, a special performance honoring health and birthing rights activist Ruth Lubic, and world roots artists Zing Experience and Brown Rice Family, representing the music that inspired hip hop.
