The Temple Of Hip Hop proudly announces our Official HHAW Events & Activities for 2012!

During Hip Hop Appreciation Week, serious “Hiphoppas” are advised to:


Give the next person the right of way. Allow others to pass you.

Donate your skill to someone who cannot afford it.

Give the loose change of your purchases to the person behind you in line.

Be quick to compliment and slow to criticize. Perform forgiveness.

Give 10% of your salary to your child’s teacher, to your teacher, or to a teacher.

Offer assistance to a neighbor; clean their kitchen, bathroom, etc., baby-sit, tutor, etc.

Study and teach the culture, arts, history and philosophies of Hip Hop.

Talk to young people about images & performances of today’s mainstream Rappers and DJs.

Acknowledge and celebrate the person or place that introduced you to Hip Hop.



Hip Hop Appreciation Week not only allows real Hiphoppas to promote their own concerts, lectures, workshops, art exhibits and cultural conferences, in their own communities raising money and opportunities for themselves and their families, but it also calls upon Hip Hop’s artists as well as those corporate entities that make money exploiting “hip-hop” to give back to the culture that has given them so much.

Hip Hop Appreciation Week is an opportunity to be a supporter of Hip Hop’s Culture, not just an exploiter of Hip Hop’s arts. The Temple of Hip Hop teaches that the true preservation of Hip Hop must include the preservation of Hip Hop’s people, not just its products and artifacts. This is why Hip Hop Appreciation Week is so important to Hip Hop’s further development; it is because Hip Hop Appreciation Week is an event that gives average everyday Hiphoppas an opportunity to make some money, teach some young people, and enjoy some real Hip Hop; basically preserving the Culture by BEING the Culture.
