The City of Oklahoma City has declared November as Hip Hop History Month. In celebration of this recognition, the third annual Oklahoma Hip Hop Festival will be holding a one-night event celebrating one of hip hop’s most iconic collectives. The festivals celebrate all elements of hip hop, with this year focusing on honoring one of the groups that exemplifies all aspects of those elements, The Roots. The Roots are most recently known as the house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon but have been a part of the fabric of hip hop for over 30 years.
Opening the tribute is Los Angeles-based neo-soul artist Brooke Taylor, who is best known from her appearances on The Steve Harvey Morning Show, being crowned the “Neighborhood Idol” on the Big Boy’s Morning Show, and for collaborations with artists such as the underground rapper Murs. Other confirmed performers include Gregory Jerome, Ckai Dawson, Spence Browne, Original Flow, DJ Quest, Roderick Porter, DJ G-MCK and Culture Cinematic band.
The 3rd Annual Oklahoma Hip-Hop Festival would not be possible without the support of our Fiscal sponsor the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. Other sponsors includes Jack Daniel’s and Downtown OKC Inc.
