UK Hip Hop gets Awarded

UK HIP HOP HONOURS 2012 Awards Ceremony

@ The Tabernacle, 35 Powis Square, London, W11 2AY.

Sunday 25th November 2012 from 1pm.

On Sunday 25th November 2012, UK HIP HOP HONOURS 2012 will celebrate 30 years of UK Hip Hop culture.  The all day event is a story of art

fused with a spectacular awards ceremony and will be held at The Tabernacle, Notting Hill. This ceremony will be the first of its kind in the UK and the first of many more to follow in the coming

years.  The event will raise funds for The K.W.A.M.E. Project (Knowledge, Wisdom, Awareness, Motivation, Empowerment) which focuses on NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training). This all happens exactly

535 days after the controversial showdown, at the same venue, between the community and The Tabernacle enterprise. Two summers ago the community demanded

inclusion in the everyday activities of the venue in the heart of Notting Hill.

UHHH 2012 will honour some of the earliest pioneers and life time achievers who have paved the way, and established what has become a rapidly growing successful UK Hip Hop scene.

The awards ceremony will be hosted by T J Chill (Zulu Nation) and Jonzi D.

The show consists of performances and showcases of Hip Hop art forms including MCs, DJs, B-Boys/Girls and Graffiti Artists.

Some of the performing artists are: MCM (Caveman), Ty, Funky DL, and Cynikal.

This year they are taking it back to the root, The Tabernacle where the likes of The Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, De La Soul, Just-Ice, Futura 2000, Brim, Afrika Bambaataa, Malcolm McLaren, The

Sex Pistols, and The Clash have either performed at or been associated with.  “The Tabernacle played an integral role at the very beginning of Hip Hop culture in the UK.” says Niko Dey one of the organisers of the event. “As we all know there’s no party like a Hip Hop party and this will be no exception; expect it to be the

party of all parties, bringing back that old school party jam nostalgia”.

Carefully selected distinguished guests are invited to a Charity Auction and Banquet hosted by Normski prior to the awards ceremony, where notable personalities

and honourees as well as personalities from the worlds of Fashion, Music kit related industry, the Entertainment / Media industry, and key individuals and outlets accredited for their role in contributing to this art form will be ministered to.

There will be live performances by Joseph Macwan and his band Out of Karma followed by a stand-up comedy set by Toju.

The guests will have the opportunity to bid on some of the rarest finds of Hip Hop memorabilia.  All profits from the auction to The K.W.A.M.E. Project.

Inspiration for a generation unaware of the roots of UK Hip Hop, UHHH 2012 will bridge the gap between the old and the new, and anyone who ever said “there is no relation” will be enlightened before the night is through.

Coverage of the event will be broadcasted throughout Europe on the Cable network.  This will also coincide with a documentary feature on the real history of UK Hip Hop culture.
