The Evolution Of Hip Hop In Preparation For The Grammy’s

This year the Grammy Foundation’s Music Preservation Project will look at hip-hop as an art form in a commemoration called “Word Revolution: A Celebration Of The Evolution Of Hip-Hop.” The Grammy Foundation’s objective is to work towards sustaining the music’s abundant history, by focusing on the influences from the genre of Hip-Hop and its impact on America’s culture. The red carpet event will take place on February 10th at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles, and will feature a broad list of guests including, but not limited to; 9th Wonder, Marsha Ambrosius, AllHipHop.com, Arrested Development, Beat Freaks, DJ Beverly Bond, El Debarge, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Kid Capri, Lil’ Mama, MC Lyte, Chrissette Michele, Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest, DJ Skee and Paul Wall. The Grammy Week festivity, which is being presented by Centric and the BET Network, will not just acknowledge the genre of hip-hop, but will also advance the Grammy Foundation’s mission of educating the public about music history. In addition to a list of great hip-hop contributors, Neil Portnow President/CEO of the Recording Academy and the Grammy Foundation will be in attendance at the multi-media performance, which will include performances and appearances by other music industry leaders and members of the Recording Academy. The event, which is open to the general public at a cost of $25, kicks off at 6:00 PM PST on Thursday, February 10th.
