When: December 2, 4:00pm to 5:00pm
When we look back to the early days of Hip-Hop, it’s wild to think of what it’s become. Over the past 50 years, Hip-Hop has birthed a range of sounds, shown up across a mix of scenes, and taken on a number of meanings in terms of its role within culture. From changes in style, cadence, lyrical content, its shift from underground to mainstream, a pillar of political change and a playmaker in high fashion, Hip-Hop as we know it, and as we have known it, has proven to not only be a cultural chameleon, but a real pioneer in its progression. It’s been tapped into across a number of industries and gone well beyond where it started 50 years ago.
In collaboration with author and American art influencer Kimberly Drew of Black Futures, we’re hosting a series of discussions to explore the wildest predictions for Hip-Hop’s future. We’re passing the mic to the visionaries and tastemakers of Hip-Hop culture—from fashion to food to art—to listen in on their take on its trajectory over the next 50 years.
Fashion has always been a major player in the Hip-Hop narrative. Join moderator Kimberly Drew and panelists Jerome Lamaar, Shannon Stokes, and Talia Bella in a conversation exploring fashion’s importance in Hip-Hop and what to expect in years to come.
