After a monumental photo shoot in front of the Lincoln Theatre, the still-life portrait of the DMV‘s (DC, Maryland, Virginia) hip-hop generation comes to life.
On Saturday April 17th, popular DC-producer JUDAH partnered with the Historical Society of DC (in conjunction with Hip Hop Cinema Cafe) to bring the district, the first of its kind, an account of the region’s own hip-hop history of the last decade and its position in the music industry. Directed by Dre of ABB Video and Sophia “The Historian” Nelson of Ordinary People Books, the collaboration with JUDAH sheds light on the journey for exposure and collectivity in rap music for DMV hip-hop artists.
