The same can be said of Second Life and the Hip Hop community. One thing that hasn't changed is our love of music and entertaining the SL grid. It's time again to share that love with the residents.

Day1 - Battle of The Era's | Day2 - Battle of the Record Labels | Day3 - Battle of the Producers and the finale on Day4 - the all out competitive represent your coast, Battle of the Coasts.  The list of DJs include: Ven Detta, Doe Riler, Matheus Brunson, DjayFifty Darkcide, Pinky Claridge, Suzie Coba Esquire, Fontaine Seetan, India Delgado, Cindy Alaric, Torrey James Sr., Shon Larsson, DJ Brasco, Niecey Qods, Exo Dannunzio Bellaire, Cali Huntress, Dominick Scarpone, Brockie Spicer, Darren Diabolito Jr., IDJ G Rock, Patrick Johnson, and Jik Shamroy.

Hip Hop Clubs In Second Life- Camury Reporting...

Hip Hop is a popular culture that emerged among the Caribbean, African-American and Latin American communities of the New York suburbs of the 1970s. The social context was violence and crime in these neighborhoods, and the only form of leisure possible for young people was on the streets. They found in music, poetry, dance and painting a form of manifestation of their reality and contestation.

Music is the main artistic manifestation of hip hop, which also has in dance and graphite strong representation. From the United States, hip hop culture has spread throughout the world.

Hip hop has four main elements: Rap, DJing, Breaking (practiced by b-boys and b-girls) and the art of graphite.

When hip hop emerged, it focused on disc jockeys that created rhythmic beats and were short stretches of music with an emphasis on repetition. Subsequently, these rhythmic beats were accompanied by rap, identified as a musical style of rhythm and poetry, along with improvised dances, such as breakdance, popping and locking.

The relationship between graffiti and hip hop emerged when new forms of painting were being performed in areas where rap, dj and dance were practiced.

Gradually hip hop has gained space in the clubs. The doubles DJs and MCs still gain prominence and compete with each other, the battles of rap, made only by the cultural manifestation and without connotation of violence. Graffiti on the walls remains the expression of painting in hip hop culture, and break is the dance that went out from the streets to parties all over the cities.

In Second Life you can know a little more about Hip Hop and have fun in one of those hot spots of music in the virtual world.

The History Of Hip Hop – A Second Life Event- October 9th-11th 2015

India Umia-Delgado, Producer
Shon Larsson, SPG ENT. Producer

A First Of Its Kind Cultural Event Produced For The Second Life Grid
On any given day of the week there is a DJ spinning Hip Hop music at a party on SL.  You will hear different styles from old school to new school, remixes to new releases.  There have been events involving groups of DeeJays of two to three and up to five at times, coming together for rezday, birthday, anniversary parties etc, but there has not been an event celebrating and paying homage to Hip Hop as a whole until now.

From October 9-11, 2015 DJ India Delgado, and Shon Larsson (DJ Rebellious1) are co-producing (a first of its kind on Second Life) three day History Of Hip Hop Event paying homage to the four elements of Hip Hop.  What will make this a historic event is we have brought together for the first time ten of SL’s best Hip Hop DeeJays from different regions of the USA in one place at the same time along with nine of the best hosts.  For three consecutive days, these DeeJays will represent their love of Hip Hop music.  We will cover the history of Hip Hop by era, by influential record label, conscious and gangsta MC’s, and by representing their region.  The DeeJays are: DJ Cinfull, DJ Styles Finess, DJ Soopa Uglee, DJ Mattmatrix, DJ MC Boogie James, DJ Ghost Dee, DJ Vendetta, DJ India, and DJ Rebellious1.  The Hosts for this event are: Z-Fatality, Quixotimus “QT”, PINK, Capricorn, Tasty Temptation, Chulamami, Kinkiie, Mkayla, and Thick Stakz.

You can’t talk about the history of Hip Hop without acknowledging B-boys and B-girls.  So to join us in this historic event, we have seven organizations performing break dance routines. Those organizations are: Xi Alpha Phi Fraternity, Theta Delta Alpha Sorority, Theta Delta Alpha-Teens, Theta Delta Alpha-Babies, Ksi Iota Sigma, Alpha Sigma Omega, and The Twin Star Dancers.  These groups will represent the East coast, West coast, Dirty South, and the Midwest.  If this wasn’t enough, you can’t talk about the History Of Hip Hop without talking about battles.  If you are familiar with the SL DJ scene, you know that DJ battles are few and pretty much non-existent unless it’s a female DJ battle.

For the first time ever on SL, we the DeeJays have come together to give the battles of all battles!  The DeeJays will battle it out on each of the three days of the event: Battle of the eras, Battle of the labels, and the grand battle, Battle of the coasts/regions.  This is not about who is better than the next DJ.  This is about our collective love of the music as we represent the coasts of choice.  East vs West vs Dirty South vs Midwest will be a wild free for all and an all-around epic event.  We are doing this event for all of you, but we are also doing this event for us.  We spend a lot of time performing for others but rarely show our appreciation for our brother and sister DeeJays.  We love the music and love sharing it.  It’s also a thank you to each other. 

We could not produce such a huge event without the assistance of our VIP sponsors.  Thank you to the following sponsors for believing in our vision, and helping us bring this event to life.

Hip Hop Clubs in Second Life -Piers Diesel Reporting...

Hip Hop is not only a music genre, it is also a culture. If you hit the clubs in Second Life you are guaranteed to hear old skool Hip Hop tunes of the latest hits on the billboard. However, if you are new to hip hop in Second Life and want to know where to go then here is a list to guide you on your way.
Hip hop just as in Real Life is alive and buzzing in Second Life. Here are some clubs we found.

Bootyliciouz Club
Opened back in 2007 plays Hip Hop and R&B is certainly a club where you will find the latest tunes being played. In the past it used to be buzzing any time of the Second Life clock with people dancing on the bar and also the dance floor, however when I went down it was empty. Don’t let that put you off though, as this could be the time of day I went down. If you and your friend(s) want to listen to Hop Hop music then this would be a good place to get the party started.

Soul Vibrations
This is a beach side club where the people are friendly.  The music is between hip hop soul and reggae. Anytime you go down there the place is always buzzing and no one bothers you. Everyone is just simply enjoying the music either dancing or relaxing near the ocean.


This is another beach venue where you will find Hip Hop as well as R&B, Soul, Funk and much more. It is a beach club couples as well as singles. A bit like Soul Vibrations in the venue lay out where the dance floor is in the open near the beach. The venue is always packed also the people are friendly.
There also other parts where you can TP to if you and your partner wish to dance somewhere else or just explore.

Serenity Groove
For those who want to listen to Hip Hop at home then there is Serenity Groove. An International Online Radio, that strives to provide its listeners with diverse programming daily. Here you will find a variety of music such as Hip Hop. Also R&B, House, Neo-Soul, Reggae, Dancehall, Talk Shows, Live DJs and Performers, and special events on a weekly basis.

If you are looking for Hip Hop music, you will definitely be able to find what you are looking for on the grid, as the demand for Hip hop increases the demand for new clubs to launch around the grid will also increase.

Spotlight on Timothy Bisquit , SL Hip Hop Artist Releases the SL Blueprint Albums. -Lanai Jarrico Reporting..

Lanai going hard at Club Indica

Hip Hop is my favorite genre. I’m not ashamed to go hard on some Jay Z, Rick Ross or  even some Kanye west while driving in my car or cleaning my house. I haven't gotten the cops called on me yet for loud music but I've gotten dirty looks.  It’s not just a genre of music, it’s a culture. From music and fashion to attitude. People can either love it, hate it or keep it movin, cause Hip Hop is here to stay.

One thing you can find in the Hip Hop genre that you can’t find in many cookie cutter songs these days, is realism, slick rhymes mixed with humor. The hustle of the street and the way a hip hop artist can use their experiences to overcome obstacles and attain a dream, is what most is about.  But lets not get it twisted. Hip Hop is not all about being gangsta, hardships and hustles in the hood.  Artists such as Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Gweneth Paltrow even that old crow Madonna has been known to go hard and spit on the mic and those ladies probubly couldn't even bust a grape in a fruit fight.
