Hip Hop Congress

event_button

Hip Hop Congress at UCLA is dedicated to addressing issues using Hip Hop as a vehicle of activism. HHC firmly believes Hip Hop is not only a genre, but also a cultural movement that effects how we interact with one another. Throughout the year, this student-run group provides the UCLA community with the resources and opportunities to explore the four pillars of Hip Hop: DJ-ing, MC-ing, B-Boying (break dancing), and Graffiti Art.

Every February, Hip Hop Congress hosts an annual Hip Hop Appreciation Month. Past events have included student mix-tape release parties, an LA apparel fashion show featuring student models, and panel discussions. In order to culminate HHAM, this series organizes the annual Hip Hop Explosion concert; past performers have included established Hip Hop acts from OutKast to E-40 and up-and-comers A$AP Rocky, Dom Kennedy, J. Cole, and more.
