The NY Hip Hop Report with Manny Faces, presented by Birthplace Magazine, continued Sunday, August 5, with our 12th episode. After a huge jump in archive listeners, the show is getting popular, both live and through listening through the archives.
Despite a brief glitch in communication in the show’s first segment, all went well afterwards as Manny and Senior Staff Writer Steven Ortiz spoke on the importance of keeping less-prominent aspects of hip hop music and culture alive, including graffiti, beatboxing, etc., speaking with Chesney Snow about the upcoming 3rd Annual American Beatbox Championships. A beatboxer from Germany checked in with a live call, and shared with us how strong the beatboxing culture is overseas, particularly in Germany.
