The Drum Celebrates 25 Years
|Kevvy Kev (r) and friend|
On Sunday, August 30, Kevvy Kev presides over the 25th Anniversary of The Drum, which he calls "the longest-running hip-hop show in the world." This year's event, held at Golden Gate Park's Peacock Meadow from 1-5pm, features 25 DJs and 25 MCs, including Naughty By Nature, Hieroglyphics, Blackalicious, Tash of the Alkoholiks, Speech of Arrested Development, Motion Man, Q-Bert, DJ D-Sharp, Davey-D, and many, many more. If that's not enough dopeness for hip-hop junkies, the afterparty at Club Six presents the Traktor Stratch 2.0 Battle, a head-to-head turntablist competition with prizes and airtime at stake. Sounds like a big "hip-hop hooray" is in order. For more info, email Kevvy Kev here or click here .
