Princeton University talk on Hip Hop

T Eric Monroe Princeton University talk on Hip Hop

February 14th I had the honor and privilege to give my first collegiate talk about Hip Hop Princeton University

Overview of talk
- Origin and history of the culture of Hip Hop
- 90’s Hip Hop
- How Hip Hop influenced American culture (impact, value and importance)
- The influence of African Americans on the broader American cultural landscape

Starting with Princeton University sets a high mark for things to come.

With the release of my upcoming book, “Rare & Unseen Moments of 90’s Hip Hop Collectors Edition, I plan on doing more University talks and presentations about Hip Hop, and my experiences with Hip Hop during the 1990’s.

The exhibition brought together so many people from all walks of life: art collectors, skaters, bankers, city officials, generations of Family, independent artist, and most of all, fans of 90’s Hiphop.

The work on display brought the viewer back to a time that they were able to relate to. The photographs offered an intimate, personal look inside the Hip Hop artists’ personal life. Seeing an unguarded, personal side of the artist that is often reserved for Family and close friends.

The images give a firsthand perspective to a time whewere just starting their careers in the early-to-mid 1990’s. You feel the passion, the struggle, the perseverance that made the artists music stand the test of time.

Last night, guests took to the 6th floor Loft for a conversation surrounding the history that influenced our new exhibition, 'Hip-Hop: Conscious, Unconscious'. Panelists included Mass Appeal Creative Director and exhibition co-curator Sacha Jenkins, co-curator Sally Berman @runred, exhibiting photographers T. Eric Monroe @tdoteric and Joe Conzo @joeconzo , and historian and Universal Hip Hop Museum (@UHHMuseum) co-curator Pete Nice @rushtown298 .

The evening was full of vibrant storytelling through rare perspectives, highlighting the significance of hip-hop's 50 year cultural journey. More than just a genre of music, the evolution of hip-hop has left a remarkable global impact.

'Hip-Hop: Conscious, Unconscious' is on view through May 30th. 






My portraits of @2pac @thenotoriousbig @lilcease @bustarhymes & @mslaurynhill are featured alongside many historic moments in Hiphop at: ‘Hip-Hop: Conscious, Unconscious’, that opened January 26th.

Together with @massappeal and @hiphop50, we’re creating the definitive destination for celebrating hip-hop’s global impact on visual expression – a traveling exhibition and immersive experience bringing together a roster of artists who have documented this cultural phenomenon.

On view through May 2023, ‘Hip-Hop: Conscious, Unconscious’ features over 200 photographs, and traces the rise and proliferation of hip-hop through five decades of work from trailblazing image-makers who helped codify hip-hop as the most influential pop culture movement of its generation.

Taking over two museum floors, the exhibition is presented in collaboration with @chase @marriottbonvoy credit cards and adds to Mass Appeal’s Hip Hop 50 cross-platform initiative - a manifestation of the company’s commitment to celebrating the culture in the most authentic and globally impactful way possible.
