Now these names may feel very strange and unfamiliar to you. Understandable.

You see, before the days of Corporate-sponsored gangsta, narcotics-glorifying, and misogynistic “rap” videos and the mass consumption of Souljah Boy, Lil B, Waka Flocka, and Nicki Minaj, there was an art form known as Hip-Hop, studied and cultivated by artists such as the Jungle Brothers, De La Soul, and a Tribe Called Quest.

Stemming from the West African griot tradition brought to New York City by young Jamaican, Puerto Rican, and southern African American migrant youths in the 1970s, Hip-Hop was a channel for the political and social commentary of America’s marginalized citizens.

This Lower Manhattan concert on February 7th will be a chance for this lost channel to open back up for New Yorkers as members of Native Tongues rock the house all night.

Check the S.O.B. website more more information on venue and admission!
