No Sleep 'til Brooklyn!

If you're in New York and you love hiphop, you don't want to miss this one, folks. Sponsored the ever-wonderful Powerhouse Books, it's a retrospective on hiphop, which will be on display at he PowerHouse Arena (37 Main Street, Brooklyn) during October 13th through the 16th. According to the press release:

No Sleep 'til Brooklyn is a 30-year retrospective of hip hop culture documenting its humble beginnings in the South Bronx through its glorious rise to global domination.The group exhibition represents every element of hip hop—from the breakers, graffiti writers, emcees, and djs to the photographers, writers, personalities, and fans who have made hip hop the greatest single force in pop culture. But this is by no means a story of celebrity, fame, and mass-market names. As KRS-One said, "Rap is something you do, hip hop is something you live." And so we dedicate No Sleep 'til Brooklyn to the people and to the streets, paying tribute to the founders, the innovators, and the next generation.

Here is one image (by Boogie) that will be displayed at the show:
