Earlier this week, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announced its 2013-2014 season which includes a weeklong festival “One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide.” The 2014 hip-hop festival will feature Nas performing music from his classic album “Illmatic” with musicians from the National Symphony Orchestra. The festival will also feature Puerto Rican musicians Calle 13 and a graffiti exhibition.
Kennedy Center President Michael Kaiser said,
“Hip-hop is clearly something new and different for us.” I think to do something very current is important. We’re trying to speak to many different audiences.”
”One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide” will take place March 28 to April 7, 2014. Dope!
