South African Hip Hop Foundation

Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - 11:39
The South African Hip Hop Foundation is a non-profit Association that was founded by a group of young South African Hip hop artists with the major task of grooming the hip hop culture in South Africa.

The South Africa Hip Hop Foundation is to explore this urban youth culture and relate with this demographic and offer a window of opportunity for a new paradigm.
 
Hip hop was initially born of the ability of those early practitioners of rap music, DJ wizardry and street corner to overcome their inability to gain acceptance and recognition by the established music, fashion and entertainment industries. Hip hop is now a way of life, a culture that is intricately woven into every aspect of young people’s daily lives.

Hip hop is no longer limited to rap music and break dancing, automotive design and fashion to prime-time television programming, and mass media marketing. Hip hop once limited to urban music and dance has become a widespread form of communication exhibited and enjoyed by young people throughout the world.

The South African Hip hop Foundation
exists to provide a positive example for young lives and give a voice to youth besides creating opportunity and direction in the lives of young people. The Hip hop culture began over 25 years ago as a positive outlet for youthful energy and creativity.

The South African Hip Hop Foundation believes in using the Hip hop culture to foster selfsteem, perseverance and productivity.
