The awards ceremony will not only celebrate and honour some of the earliest pioneers and life time achievers who have paved the way, and established what has become a rapidly growing successful UK Hip Hop scene that we have today; it will help raise funds for The K.W.A.M.E. Project, which focuses on disadvantaged pupils and NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training).
The event will kick off with a Charity Auction hosted by DJ and early 90s BBC presenter Normski prior to the awards ceremony, where notable personalities and honourees as well as the key individuals and outlets from different industries that have supported the UK Hip Hop movement. There will be live performances from Joseph Macwan & Out of Karma and stand-up comedy from Toju (Balls of Steel). Guests will have the opportunity to bid on some of the rarest finds of Hip Hop memorabilia, the profits raised will be donated to The K.W.A.M.E. Project.
The awards ceremony, taking place in the evening (5.30pm) will be hosted by London Hip Hop veteran T J Chill (Zulu Nation) and Breakin’ Convention artistic director Jonzi D. The will have a mix of the different Hip Hop art forms including DJs, MCs, B-Boys/Girls and graffiti artists. Performing artists on the night will be Young Ty, Cynikal, MCM (Caveman) and Funky DL. Coverage of the event will be broadcasted throughout Europe on cable network. This will also coincide with a documentary feature on the real history of UK Hip Hop culture.
Inspiration for a generation unaware of the roots of UK Hip Hop, UHHH 2012 will bridge the gap between the old and the new, and anyone who ever said “there is no relation” will be enlightened before the night is through.
