Winter Block Party

Mercedes Zapata is a Chicago-based photographer and she was on hand at Winter Block Party to capture all the action of our evening concert!

There was a strong undercurrent of love and community that every participant and attendee brought to the table that truly embodied our theme of “We the People.”

We’ve curated five playlists that celebrate the elements: Lyricism, DJing, Breaking, Graffiti, and Knowledge.

We sat down with MC and DJ Dirty MF to talk hip-hop history, the blue groove lounge, and passing the torch of hip-hop to younger generations. 

We sat down with Matt to chat Chicago’s open mic scene, the ever-changing landscape of hip-hop, and what our theme “we the people” means to him …

In advance of their appearance at Winter Block Party 2020, Jesse De La Pena sat down with Parker Lee and Akbar of legendary hip-hop group Mental Giants.
