First of all, thank you everyone who came out and supported the Conscious Kulturez food drive for Occupy the Hood Boston #FeedTheHood campaign. Friday night we took over Kulturez Dynasty in Harvard Sq. and ran a food drive out of the homie Mayan‘s shop. For several hours we hung out, collected canned goods and donations from attendees who came for some of best in Boston Hip-Hop. The show was hosted by the Queen Bee JayDee from Beats Rhymes & Life with sounds by the one and only EvillDewer. We featured a spectrum of music and dance from #HighKey Music, MeTaL, Random, Krash and TV Remi of True East Ent., Cassius the 5th, Rey Leon, OverTime Often, Pause and Catch Wreck with Spenda of Retrospek. Everyone tore it down and had a good time.
The fundraiser / food drive part went great as well. We exceeded all our expectations raising just over $200 and a full box of canned goods. If you want to see how this money will be spent and how much of an impact just $200 will have, check out this video.
We also invite everyone to join us again next week as we do it bigger with Conscious Styles at Spontaneous Celebrations.
