yay area politickin'

If you're free tomorrow evening, come represent at a very rare hip-hop panel at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, one of the nation's top public affairs forums:

ERIC ARNOLD, Reporter, East Bay Express
MISTAH F.A.B., Artist, Thizz Entertainment
TAMARA PALMER, Author, Country Fried Soul: Adventures in Dirty South Hip Hop; Reporter, SF Weekly
TRAXAMILLION aka THE SLAPP ADDICT, Producer; King of the Hyphy Sound
ADISA BANJOKO, Journalist; Author, Lyrical Swords, Vol. I and II - Moderator


The Bay Area rap scene is witnessing its largest resurgence since the early 1990s. Like southern "crunk," the Bay Area "hyphy" phenomenon is a production style, dance and mind state sweeping the country. Popularized by locals E-40, the Federation and Keak Da Sneak, "hyphy" means "going dumb & gettin' loose." This panel will attempt to separate the popular drug elements of the hyphy movement from its social, political and musical roots.

6:00 p.m., Registration | 6:30 p.m., Program | 7:30 p.m., Wine and cheese reception | Club office, 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco | Free for Members, $15 for Non-Members, $7 for Students (with valid ID; to reserve student tickets call 415-597-6705) | Directions to The Club.
