Rock The Block is HERE

Bay Area hip hop heads unite. Rock The Block: The Bay is finally here! Check it out live and in effect this Thursday, February 4th, at 9pm in the UC Berkeley Multicultural Center. This time, Students for Hip Hop has partnered up with close friends CalSlam (on their way to competing in Boston at this year’s College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational) to put on what is promised to be a solid night.

Confirmed Artists include:

-Mandeep Sethi (Scroll down to check his promo with MC Sahku)

-Chuuwee (Scroll down to check his video for C.R.E.A.T.S.)



-As well as Student performers Alex Park and Riley Kovatch.

Of course, look to see this floating around the East Bay for the next few days. (*cough cough* Put together by our very own in house graphic designer, gabbyzuko)

Everybody over here at (S4HH) has put a lot of work into this and is excited to see it finally come together. In support for the relief efforts in Haiti, Cal Students for Hip Hop is donating all proceeds made by the concert to Partners in Health. $5 dollar donations (or more) are encouraged. It’s going to a good cause.

Help us make this live – The more folks that show up, the more likely (S4HH) will be able to put on quality concerts in the future. We’re doing this in conjunction with the University’s “Welcome Week” campaign so this is for the transfer students, spring admits, lower class men, upper class men, grad students, professor and most of all… the hip hop heads in an around the East Bay community. We hope to see you there.
