Hip-Hop Innovates – Episode 0001 – 02/19/19

Introduction, hip-hop education, hip-hop history, artist of the day

On this inaugural episode of #HipHopInnovates with Manny Faces, I break down a little bit about who I am, and why I’m doing this. The series will highlight quick items from around the world that showcase innovative thinking around hip-hop music and culture, especially ways hip-hop is being used to uplift lives, livelihoods, and communities.

These videos will highlight a couple of current news items, and an ‘Artist of the Day,’ someone who is going above and beyond mere entertainment — Plus an occasional commentary here and there, notices about related upcoming conferences and events, and more, all in short clips that I plan to drop every weekday.

For more information, suggestions, or gushing compliments, feel free to reach out at info@hiphopadvocacy.org or via social media.

Thanks for your time.

The mission of The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy is to broaden public perception of hip-hop music and culture, ensuring that varied and continuing contributions to multiple fields and disciplines are fairly and accurately documented and communicated. The Center focuses on highlighting hip-hop’s contributions in areas including, but not limited to, music and the arts, education, activism/politics/community, health/sciences/well-being and philosophy. In simplest terms, we exist to help tell hip-hop’s complete story, past, present and future, from an independent perspective, to inform, educate and inspire while protecting and promoting the cultural, artistic and community-based aspects of hip-hop as a whole.
