The NOLA Hiphop Archive was founded in 2012 as an effort to collect, document, and make accessible to the public the oral histories of New Orleans’ influential rappers, producers and DJs who helped to create and popularize hiphop and bounce music traditions in the city and beyond. This is the NOLA Hiphop Archive promo video featuring Mystikal, Ricky B, Leroy “Precise” Edwards, Mannie Fresh, Skip UTP, Partners-n-Crime, Dee-1, DJ Quickie Mart, and KLC. The NOLA Hiphop Archive launches Spring 2014 worldwide. Watch the vid below and head down to find out how you can help support this project through Kickstarter.
The Kickstarter initiative will be used to assist in the collection of an additional 30 new videotaped oral histories, to be completed by the end of 2014, as well as the creation of a digital viewing station, housed in the Amistad Research Center at Tulane University. A donation of any amount toward our successful goal will help to further document and provide support and recognition for these important members of our creative community and beyond.
