The Hip Hop Alliance Responds
The Hip Hop Alliance Responds. Rapper-turned-actor Bow Wow practically demanded a rap committee to protect artists. Now, the HHA wants to educate him on their existence.
Hip Hop Alliance Responds to Bow Wow
The Hip Hop Alliance Responds. Coincidentally, Hip Hop celebrates 50 years today. So, this topic proves to be very on-brand for the culture.
As previously mentioned, Shad ‘Bow Wow’ Moss took to Twitter to all but demand a hip-hop board. Seemingly, this committee’s main purpose would be the benefit of the artists.
Obviously, Moss wasn’t privy to the Hip Hop Alliance created by multiple pioneers of the genre back in 2021.
Fast forward, the alliance wants to speak more with the Shorty Like Mine rapper. Specifically, Chuck D, Kurtis Blow, and KRS-One invited him and others to join a Clubhouse conversation that took place on January 20th.
Not to mention, they issued a statement via the LL Cool J-owned Rock The Bells platform.
“Like every other aspect of society’s workforce, the artists and creators of Hip Hop need protection, support and advocacy,” the statement reads. “From label disputes to intellectual property retrieval and the need for an overall governing body, the Hip Hop Alliance was established.”
HHA Coming Together
As we can see, the union takes advocating for the artist quite seriously. The statement continues:
“Recent comments this weekend created a unique opportunity to bring forth a conversation that many in Hip-Hop & R&B have been addressing for a long time. The need of a governing body of Hip Hop. The goal of HHA is to empower artists to make informed decisions about their career and ensure that their rights are respected and protected.”
Furthermore, the Alliance plans to continue the conversation while utilizing Black History Month to reach more people.
“As our culture comes together to honor and celebrate the 50th year of the creation of Hip-Hop, now is the time for all of us to come together. In that spirit, we invite our brother Bow Wow to join us this coming Friday (January 20) at 7 p.m. EST on the Clubhouse app and/or our Black History Month online conference on Tuesday (February 25) at 4 p.m. EST on the HHA YouTube page.”
So far, there’s no buzz on whether or not Bow joined the conversation last night. Hopefully, the hip-hop world continues to stand in solidarity and push the alliance forward.
Happy birthday to hip-hop!
