When: December 1, 8:00pm to 10:30pm
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.
VICE can’t come to Basel and not throw a party – so we’re throwing three. Bringing to life our Next 50’s Scene Reports, we’re collaborating with boundary-pushing talent to curate each of three nights for a showcase of different predictions in the future of Hip-Hop.
Join us for sounds of Africa + the African diaspora: from Afrobeat to Amapiano, GQOM to AfroPop, highlighting Africa’s new sounds and its inescapable influence on Hip-Hop with performances from Uncle Waffles and Sudan Archives.
