The Universal Hip Hop Museum recently announced the celebrity and activist lineup for a global live stream Hip Hop peace celebration, “Hip Hop 4 Peace,” which will take place on Monday, September 21 at 7 pm EST on YouTube @UHHMuseum. Top Hip Hop artists from over 20 countries lend their voices, art, and performance to benefit the museum’s educational programs and elevate the message of peace.
“Sept. 21st is the International Day of Peace, Peace Day. What better way to celebrate peace as a cornerstone of Hip Hop culture than on Peace Day,” asked Tina Marie Tyler, creator and Executive Producer, “Hip Hop 4 Peace,” and Advisory Board member, Universal Hip Hop Museum. Hip Hop 4 Peace productions partners include: L.U.C. + Rebel Babel, Generation Hip Hop Global, Tina On Tech, New Orleans Jazz Museum, Krakow, KBF, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Humanity Coalition, and Amistad Research Center.
Hip Hop 4 Peace will also feature a world video premiere from rap icon Kurtis Blow and rising star Klondike Blonde. Blow’s song “King of Humanity” is an artistic tribute to the late Rep. John Lewis. Blonde’s inspiring tune “Better” is an uplifting message about making positive change through peace and love.
