KZSU DJ Kevvy Kev  is the Yoda of hip-hop - a wise Jedi of boom-bap who has been a constant force in supporting the music and the culture since anyone can remember.

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 .
