HipHopGods.com, the premier destination for classic rap fans, will launch the inaugural HipHopGods Classic Tourfest Revue next month with a series of concerts featuring Public Enemy and a revolving lineup of allstars from the Golden Age of hip hop including X Clan, Schoolly D, Leaders of the New School, Monie Love, Son of Bazerk, Wise Intelligent (of Poor Righteous Teachers), Awesome Dre and Davy DMX.
The tour begins on November 28th in Washington, DC at the 930 Club and will make its way across the country to Los Angeles several weeks later.
The collection of artists will take the stage each night to deliver a rare combination of thought-provoking entertainment and history lesson in the musical phenomenon they helped build. Each act not only played a vital role in the development of hip hop culture but continues to be an important and influential force in music.
HipHopGods.com is the first fully-comprehensive community for old-school hip hop fans, bringing together the most important and enduring rappers into one site where classic rap lives on. Developed by BTNEastlink in association with Chuck D, HipHopGods.com aims to “encompass and empower the hip hop nation,” Chuck D explains, and “to have the hip hop community get and keep a hold on itself and connect the legacy.” The site has been likened to “classic rock radio” by DMC of Run-DMC. KRS-One noted that “When I log on to HipHopGods.com, I feel like I am entering the Hip Hop nation.”
HipHopGods offers a truly interactive platform, pulling together classic hip hop fans from around the globe into a single network where they can communicate not just with each other, but with the artists as well. Combining the past, present and future of the hip hop universe, the site also aims to highlight the everlasting artistry of the performers, focusing on not just the revolutionary work they have done, but how they continue to be vibrant, creative forces and chronicle their newer work.
