UK #HipHopEd Manifesto

Over the last 2 years the UK#HipHopEd crew have been working towards a manifesto of our beliefs. On Monday 4th November we will be inviting responses to this manifesto as part of the relaunch of our UK #HipHopEd Twitter chats. These chats were the groups first official foray into HipHopEd, following on from the ground-breaking work of our US family. The chats will continue weekly throughout Novemebr before the work on our 5th UK #HipHopEd seminar in February 2014. If you are interested in matters of hiphop and education, find us on Twitter using  '#HipHopEd' and have your say on the topics raised. peaCe

  1. Young Gifted Bio:

    Born and raised in the eerie streets of New Brunswick, New Jersey.

    Young Gifted has been together since 1988. Started out as a dance crew; then turned rap group.

    Main Rapper Name: L.O.V.E stands for:

    (L) yrical (O) men (V) icious (E) verywhere “Aka” The Lunatic Bandit

    Love discovered that he had the lyrical skills to rap. Total Kaos discovered he had the skill and talent to make beats. So in 1990, Love and Total kaosdecided to put together the mega rap group “Young Gifted”.

    Group: Young Gifted
    Featured Artist: Love

    Mixtape title: Young Gifted “Jersey's Finest" Vol 1

    We know that Young Gifted is the hottest group out there, with the hottest rappers coming straight out of New Jersey. So with that thought in mind, we were inspired to come up with the titled track: Jersey’s Anthom. We decided it was best to name our mixtape: Young Gifted “Jersey Finest” Vol 1

    Mixtape title: Young Gifted "Get Busy On Um”

    In the early 90's, hip hop was finally getting the recognition as a force to be reckoned. So allot of people became inspiring rappers. Therefore the industry became flooded. So we felt that we had to step up our game and "Get Busy On Um".

    We believe that Young Gifted represent’s real hip hop. When hip hop was created, it was all about the culture and its movement. Now it’s about the all mighty dollar. Over the years, music has changed dramatically. We feel that artist moved away from developing their talent and lyrical skills. That's why we stayed true to the culture. Our lyrics are razor sharp, and on point. Our style is very versatile and we have tracks for all occasions. The lack of creativity and frustration with hip hop culture of today, Young Gifted had to get highly motivated and inspired to come up with the titled track: "Stay True To Your Trade"

    We were influenced by Rappers such as,

    Public Enemy, NWA, EPMD, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, KRS-1, BiG, Tupac, Snoop-Dog & the Dog Pound, Wu-tang Clan, Redman, Naughty by Nature, Queen Latifah & the Flavor Unit, Lyte, Jay-Z, Eminem, Nas, Canibus, Lil Wayne, Drake, Rick Ross.
