Hip hop block party on Saturday

Hip hop! Just got a press release about DC Has Hip Hop: a Block Party, presented by Flex Mathews, a local artist who was named the City Paper's best local rapper and gets a lot of love at DCist.

Inspired by the MuralsDC project, the event taking place on Saturday August 22nd from 3 to 8 pm alongside Aniekan Udofia’s mural in the alley at 1435 Meridian Pl NW. Local charity group Words, Beats and Life is sponsoring also, and there's a lot more too:
Live from the alley, DJ RBI will be holding it down on the ones & twos, as some of DC’s young local hip-hop talent take the mic and take over the dance floor. The block party includes a live b-boy/b-girl cipher and graffiti exhibition featuring students from the DC Urban Arts Academy, an emcee open mic, a mindpower freestyle cipher hosted by Jabari Exum, and a special art installation by mural artist Aniekan Udofia.
