4 Corners Assembly

Today Hip Hop is a multi-billion dollar per year industry, but where did it come from? Why was it created? And most importantly, what can we learn from it?

The 4 Corners Assembly takes students back in time to the Bronx, New York; one of the most inequitable circumstances for people of colour. Throughout the 70’s the area was a symbol of urban decay. However, it was from these dire circumstances that Hip Hop was born. 

The story of Hip Hop is the story of how a community started to communicate a message of equality to the world. Through decades of suffering, this art form blended and transcended to become a means for seeing, celebrating, experiencing, understanding, confronting, and commenting on life. Hip-Hop became a way of life, inextricably linked to culture for people of color. 

The name “4 Corners” comes from the four elements of Hip-Hop culture. They include: 

DJing — The artistic handling of beats and music

Mcing — Putting spoken-word poetry to a beat

Breaking—Hip-Hop’s dance form

Graffiti — The painting of highly stylized graffiti

DJ’s are the soul behind the beat that pleases, surprises, and puts people on the dance floor; all while communicating a subtle and powerful message through song. It is that insight, a passionate knowledge of music, and technical know-how that make Djing one of the pillars of Hip-Hop culture.

Caribbean genres such as Calypso, Chutney, Kaiso, Bomba, Reggae and Hip-Hop represent roots and resistance. See how this music was created by people separated by geography, languages, customs, and traditions who did not concede to abuse and restraint but instead, turned their suffering into a celebration of who they are and how far they have come — as one.
