In a celebration of a half-century of Hip-Hop culture, Hip-Hop Wired has introduced a podcast series, ‘Witness To History: 50 Years of Hip-Hop Greatness’. The series is an homage to the influential figures of the industry, with a particular focus on those whose contributions have been eclipsed by more mainstream names.

First Episode Features DJ Kid Capri

The inaugural episode of the series presents a thorough interview with DJ Kid Capri, a Bronx-born turntable prodigy with a wealth of knowledge on the history of Hip-Hop. Co-hosted by Aladdin Da Prince from WKYS, the podcast ventures into Capri’s pioneering work in mixtapes and his experiences on the iconic show, Def Comedy Jam.

Podcast: A Platform for Unheard Voices

The series aims to provide a platform for significant industry contributors to narrate their unique stories and shed light on their contributions to the Hip-Hop genre. This initiative by Hip-Hop Wired is expected to bring forth the unsung heroes of the industry, giving them the recognition they deserve.

Congress Honors Hip-Hop’s 50th Anniversary

In a parallel recognition of Hip-Hop’s importance, the U.S. Congress recently honored the 50th anniversary of the genre with resolutions in both the House and Senate. Spearheaded by Rep. Sydney Kamlager Dove, the House resolution received support from several other representatives. The Senate designated August 11th as Hip Hop Celebration Day, the entire month of August as Hip Hop Recognition Month, and November as Hip Hop History Month. The Recording Academy has also expressed gratitude for the official celebration of Hip-Hop’s 50th anniversary, underscoring the genre’s significance as a part of American culture and history.
