Next week the elements of the Hip Hop scene (past, present and future) will collide in Ithaca New York to coincide with the exhibition of The Hip Hop Collection at Cornell University.

The three-day event will feature panel discussions, art exhibits and a concert series featuring Afrika Bambaata (see Dan Smalls Presents, Inc.). Of particular interest to SIF will be the talk by Hip Hop Photo-historian Joe Conzo (who also documented the Latin Music scene in the 70s and 80s).
