Chuck ‘Jigsaw’

Creekmur and “Grouchy” Greg Watkins, co-CEO’s of AllHipHop.com

formally announces its First Annual AllHipHop Week, which will include voter

registration, Breeding Ground Live, The Social Lounge, the 2nd Annual BBQ and

others special events.

Jigsaw and Grouchy said

the week wasn’t even supposed to be.

“We never intended

to have a week, but we happened to have all these great events lined up and

so we just decided to package it together,” said Jigsaw of the week’s

affairs. “I think this is going to be a memorable week that people are

going to want to enjoy yearly.”

The week offers a number

of highlights with the brightest spots being the quarterly AllHipHop Social

Lounge, The Breeding Ground Live at SOB’s and the 2nd Annual AHH BBQ.

On Tuesday, August 24th

at 6pm – ALLHIPHOP’S SOCIAL LOUNGE returns to SOB’s nightclub in New York City

at 204 Varick Street at West Houston Street. The Social Lounge is hosted by

Erick Parker (Vibe Magazine) and Amanda Diva of MTV 2.

Furthermore, the FREE program

features an esteemed panel that will discuss a number of pressing topics that

face the Hip-Hop community. With DJ Lazy K spinning, panelist include Def Jam

rapper Joe Budden, Dr. Benjamin Chavis, CEO of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network,

M-1 from dead prez and Ms. Info, a personality from Hot 97’s famed morning

show. The Social Lounge will be capped off by a performance by Freeway and Ice

City.

Grouchy Greg says, “This

is by far one of the best and diverse group of individuals that we’ve

pulled together. We really expect to home in on the dilemmas that we face daily,

but also offer realistic solutions that people can take with them.” This

is the second such community gathering at SOB’s.

The day after the Social

Lounge, SOB’s will also host the first BREEDING GROUND LIVE, where AllHipHop’s

greatest unsigned artists get on stage to display what was once limited to the

internet. The Breeding Ground is the online entity where AllHipHop allows talented

lyricists to spit fire for the millions that visit the site.

AllHipHop President Steve Julien, who oversees the Breeding Ground says, “We

have Stimuli from Brooklyn, Blyss from D.C., Mims from Washington Heights NYC,

Uno Dos and others coming to tear it down. On top of that, rap vet Lord Finese

is the host so we have it all locked down.”

On Friday, August 27th at 6 PM at The Star Club on 246 Columbus St., AllHipHop continues its week with a Hip-Hop Film Screening. By partnering up with H2O [Hip-Hop Odyssey] International Film Festival, AllHipHop plans to show a films with a Hip-Hop perspective.

hip-hoppers can convene to network, chill, eat and meet other like-minded individuals.
