THE KENNEDY Center for the Performing Arts has recently announced the creation of its hip-hop culture council, with rapper Q-Tip at the helm.
The council has been developed in efforts to bring more hip-hop-focused programming to the institution. Hip-hop culture will be examined through the lens of workshops, film screenings, panels, and virtual programs.
Q-Tip will spearhead the council which is made up of a collective of influential individuals that are connected to hip-hop. Amongst some of the individuals who will sit on the council are Questlove of The Roots, rapper Common, rapstress MC Lyte, producer Mimi Valdes, DJ Bobbito Garcia and Interactive One’s own Kierna Mayo. Rapper LL Cool J—who was honored by Kennedy Center last year—will also be a part of the council.
