Description

What is the Rose that Grew From Concrete?

Inspired by Tupac, our event theme was created to show people that it's not the cards of life that dictate your life but how you can adapt to your surroundings.

Hip-N-Paint (HNP) is Sip and Paint with a Hip-Hop Twist. Bring your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, or whoever to sip some good dranks and express your creativity through painting. Hip-N-Paint starts at 6-9pm and continues until 12 am in conjunction with the Tech Trap House.

The Tech Trap House (TTH) was created to bridge the community gap between underrepresented communities and the tech industry using arts, music, and gaming.

Artists:

Bebe Hendrix: Website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, Soundcloud, Youtube

Bebe Hendrix, 32-year old Oakland, CA native, is the embodiment of a true Emcee. In his music, you can hear touches of Jazz, Early Rock and Roll, early 90's R&B, and of course Hip Hop. In an area known for its hyphy mob sound, Bebe has chosen to take a more instrumental approach. Rapping over live bass rips and natural drum loops reminiscent of the boom-bap era. Lyrically no subject is taboo as he speaks on his personal involvement in the streets, politics, sex, drugs, love and other social issues that are relevant in his generation. In fact, no artist has proved to be more unafraid of speaking on the subject of love than Bebe. In his last two projects, "Best Wishes" and the more recent "No Malice Intended". The subject of love proved to be the very thesis as Bebe shared his intimate feelings and experiences on love and relationships. In his own words " true artist draw from love." but don't get it confused he is no sensitive Drake or a ladies man like LL Cool J. He was once homeless and gives you a front-row seat into his flaws and insecurities as a human being. One might be quick to dismiss his style, as "EMO" rap. But to him, it is, "mood music", the perfect artistic expression of emotions at that very moment. So whether it is joy, anger, or sadness. Each emotion can be sonically felt throughout his music. It is that pure authentic stance that he takes on his art form, that makes his music so special. Everything is organic nothing is forced. in his own words. " Your either going to love it or hate it, and I'm completely fine with either outcome."

Sarai: Instagram and Soundcloud
