The Greatest Hip Hop Cover Story Ever Told


Editorial Review

Over the course of 30 years, hip-hop has moved from a curiosity to a ubiquitous force throughout the world, for better and sometimes for worse. "The Greatest Hip-Hop Cover Story Ever Told" aims to chart this path with a multimedia production at Dance Place, which features the most Washington hip-hop talents ever amassed on one stage. From street-oriented rappers like Laelo Hood to socially focused performers like Hueman Prophets, this show's cast of artists is as communal as it is ambitious. This performance contains explicit lyrics; for mature audiences only.
