Step into the vibrant world of hip hop with “Grouchy” Greg Watkins, the founder of We’re thrilled to have him as our guide as we navigate the pulsating journey of hip hop, right from that climactic day on August 11th, 1973, when it all began, to its evolution into an unbeatable cultural phenomenon. We’re celebrating half a century of hip hop, and what’s better than doing it in Delaware, a state with significant contributions to this genre.

Gear up for a sneak peek into the Delaware Hip Hop Summit Celebration, which promises a multicultural extravaganza marking the 50th anniversary of hip hop.

From workshops, activities, exhibitions to heart-thumping DJ showcases, graffiti, panel discussions, there’s a lot in store. So, get ready to soak in the rich tapestry of hip hop culture, its roots, and the extent of its influence today.
