KHK is an after school program designed to give children the unique opportunity to provide clean water to children in Africa and Haiti while being creative through the beautiful art of hip hop.
We begin to educate the kids on Kool Herc, the founder of hip hop and his original mission. A mission that were to create a positive and creative outlet to promote peace and unity. A mission to offer his peers an alternative to the gang and street life in his neighborhood of south Bronx. Gangs quickly joined the movement and began to battle through break dancing and rhyming. Hip hop was saving lives from its conception.
We teach them that hip hop is a culture with 5 different elements: Djing, rhyming, break dancing, graffiti and fashion. What is one the radio is simply other rhyming element of hip hop. However the majority of it contradicts its original purpose by promoting negativity, hate and violence. Therefore this music is simply rap. Rap was around many years before hip hop in other forms such as nursery rhymes. Even the way we are taught to learn our ABC's is in a rhyme form. Rhyming is not hip hop.
HIP HOP IS A POSITIVE ARTISTIC CULTURE DESIGNED TO PROMOTE PEACE AND UNITY IN ITS COMMUNITY
