Bingewatch Real Hip Hop May 18th on

I like this

Have you ever sat and watched a marathon of back to back episodes of your favorite TV show on DVR or during a special airing? If you have, then you’re a bingewatcher. It’s not a bad thing. It’s just a new phenomenon provided to us more readily in the age of ON DEMAND VIDEO. Sometimes, you can catch a marathon already in progress and get caught up on what you’ve missed. Well, in case you didn’t already know, Shades of Hip Hop has over 20 years of Hip Hop footage archived on video tape. And we’re not talking about your run of the mill video either. This archive contains classics.

If you want to see what Hip Hop looked like in the 1990’s from a unique, up-close, behind the scenes point of view, then join us on Sunday May 18th ALL DAY, starting at 12 midnight on in the VIDEO ARCHIVE. We will be airing some of the Shades of Hip Hop full length features that started the phenomenon of video mixtapes. In addition, we have some exclusive footage unlike any other Hip Hop site, because we were there. There will also be some special guests joining us to discuss the state of Hip Hop since last year and the future of Hip Hop for ourselves and generations to come. The special will be hosted by the Worldwide Cypher family’s own Kurt Nice (U.S.) IGI B (Switzerland) and DJ XL (U.K.) who first came together about 6 years ago in the first WWC Sunday Show. Also on the check in will be Nigeria, Canada, France, Colombia, Germany, Macedonia, Ireland, India, and states across America.
