We are dealing with the State of Music and in particularHip Hop and the effects it has on the people. You have to ask yourself what happened? What happened to music? If you remember in the 70s and even the 80’s and into the 90’s music was socially conscious it was politically correct. Everything that was going on in the world was mirrored in the music and vice versa but today things have changed.
What happened to the music?
The one consistent that you see with all of the genres of “rap” is that it is not uplifting life anymore. It is not socially conscious. The so called conscious rap does not get any play on radio or tvat all.
It is by design that the gangster, young swag, and dance rappers get pushed. The people who are in control do not need money they just want to control the music.
The music is the soul.
The music is the people.
If you can control the music then you can control the people. Our intellectual property, the things that influence the music, the things we write say and do. We have to learn to hold on to it and control it for us.
We have to take that back. ~Sol Messiah

Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen Vol. 5 , “BE THE CURE!” is excited to celebrate our 5th YEAR ANNIVERSARY Concert and kick off International Women’s Month on Sat., March 3, 2012 at Hostos Community College in the South Bronx. Our goal is to initiate dialogue and inspire actionin supporting healthier nutrition, more physical activity, and increased community involvement among women and their families through the vibrant culture of hip- hop. We will use hip-hop as a tool to address and bring awareness to both reproductive cancers (i.e. cervical, endometrial, ovarian, vaginal) and breast cancer which disproportionately affect communities of color.
WE GET IT!!!! We see the women in our communities dying of breast and cervical cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, AIDS and domestic violence in our hoods all of the time. We know and understand that poverty is a human condition marked by substandard housing, low educational attainment, and subsistence-level employment. We understand that the poverty which plagues our communities has enabled high rates of unemployment, exposure to environmental toxins, and poor access to health care. Yes, WE GET IT!!! So we, at Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen choose to BE THE CURE. We acknowledge that we cannot depend on our government to bring equality to these disparities. We can no longer wait for politicians and government officials to get it together. Time is running out for our families and communities who are in desperate need of proper healthcare. It is up to US to use preventative measures to lessen the mortality rates.
African American women have the highest breast cancer death rate among minority women—32.8 per 100,000 population. Latinas have the third highest death rate death rate of 15.0 per 100,000.
In 2011, more than 12,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer. Most of these women are younger than 55. Women suffering most severely from this disparity include African American women in the South, Latina women along the Texas-Mexico border, white women in Appalachia, American Indians of the Northern Plains, Vietnamese American women, and Alaska Natives.
Sexually transmitted HPV infection is believed to be responsible for 90 to 95 percent of all cervical cancers.
Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen, Vol. 5: Be the Cure! will assist in introducing healthier alternatives to our families and communities. We believe that hip-hop is a healing instrument that can be used for mental, emotional, and physical wellness. We encourage you to become a b-girl, deejay, emcee or graffiti artist who will disseminate positive information and create a more holistic culture.

As one of the founders of Momma’s Hip Hop Kitchen , I am moved to tears at the thought that one little dream would turn into something so big and powerful. I have watched our audience grow from 500 people to 1,500 in 5 years. I have watched over 200 women perform with all of their love and might to bring healing to the audience, to their community and to the globe. I have worked with over 300 exceptional organizations and vendors like La Pena del Bronx, RDAC-BX, Mothers on the Move, Casa Atabex Ache and Guerrilla Republik. I have met new lifelong friends in the volunteers, the photographers, videographers, backstage managers, tshirt designers, muralists…..this list goes on. I have seen people come out from all over the world for this event from Denver to Germany, Chicago to Venezuela, Minneapolis to Mexico.
As an artist myself, I enjoy seeing other artist be a vessel! I am inspired by the “Artist Meet N’ Greet” that we host a few weeks before the event, so that the artists can know each other for the big show. No room for competition when our goal is to heal. What happens backstage is magic because the day of the show the women come in knowing each other and it’s all PURE LOVE and POWER!!!!
I have watched people of all kinds be in awe of amazing young artist like NeNe Ali Spokenwordpoet. I have seen people jolt as if they have been invoked with the spirit from Queen GodIs Ink and Akua Naru Olatunji. I have witnessed the crowd scream with pride as they watch the Legendary Ana Rokafella Garcia and her beautiful crew rock that stage and end in the dopest B-Girl stance. I have seen Latina mothers high-five each other at the end of La Bruja’s super poem with her daughter at her side. What I have seen in this lifetime through MHHK is an incredible women in hip hop social justice and self-respect/love movement.
I have grown way more than I could have ever imagined.
I just wanted to say that I don’t regret DREAMING. God has always met me where I need it most. MHHK Vol. 5: “BE THE CURE!” concert is not only a celebration of 5 years of community awareness and impeccable talent, but of souls who are willing to be the cure in the midst of the fire and the ridiculous brutality that we endure.
I wholeheartedly respect and honor families that are willing to be healers and be healed through HIP HOP, through art. I am infused with an undying commitment and dedication every year that I see an old face who brought a new friend or family member. I know that Kathleen Adams and I ( Lah Tere) believe that this platform was sent to us as a mission from our Creator. We are humbled by the support and passion of our international community. We are pleased to serve you the best Soup for the Hip Hop Soul! ♥
Last year’s theme was : “Let’s Get Active!” and so we are doing it by “Being the Cure!” through the arts. Join us!
Sol Messiahh. He is called the Navigator, the Bey of God Hop. He is to God Hop what Afrika Bambaata is to Hip Hop. His only focus is organizing and generating real energy that will empower communities and generate currency that will sustain healthy lifestyles. This translates to “Eat some Food, Teach the babies, Rock some shows” = FOOD, CLOTHING, HIP HOP
No child left behind? Well the children of the United States are ranking in the low to mid teens in reading, science, and math. Over half of middle aged children in the United States lack elementary proficiency in reading. The epic proportions of drop outs at primary and secondary levels is proof that student needs are not being met and that we may have to reassess our teaching methods and ideologies.
The elements of Hip Hop are the essential building blocks that are needed to build mental and physical life skills in our communities right now. Afrika Bambaataa the Godfather of Hip Hop called the fifth element, knowledge of self. Armored with that knowledge, The God Hop Movement presents Food, Clothing, and Hip Hop. This is a cultural education project that will teach the history and development of Hip Hop’s (Indigenous Art) culture. It will engage and educate students about health, community development and advocacy, social entrepreneurship, leadership and team building, and career development.
