Hip Hop in the Park 6 (or 2013, whichever feels right to you...) is around the corner! This year is already shaping up to be our best year yet. We probably say this every year, but that's a good thing! Anywho, this year we have Native Born Mafia hailing all the way from Australia. This makes HHitP6/2013 our first intercontinental year to date, which naturally we are very excited about. Moka Only will also be in town, and while he is not yet officially a part of the festival, we're going to help promote his event anyways because there aren't too many Canadians more Hip Hop than Moka Only.
So get excited! We are!!!

Hip-Hop in the Park is a week long music and culture festival in Edmonton, Alberta. Launched annually during the third week of every May, it celebrates Hip-Hop Appreciation Week endorsing hip-hop expression in a non-violent and positive way.
Hip-Hop Appreciation Week was founded by KRS-One’s Temple of Hip-Hop, and it marks the anniversary of when Hip-Hop became an official culture sanctioned by the United Nations. The Hip-Hop Declaration of Peace, an official UN document that clearly states the pillars and principles of Hip-Hop culture.
The HHitP Foundation is an organization spearheaded by the Hip Hop in the Park planning commitee members as an initiative to build communities, share resources, and develop Edmonton's uber-talented creative writing scene.
