#Bestof2013 – Top 10 ‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? [List]

Posted on December 27, 2013 by



We waited as long as we could to fit in December releases but with less than a week left in 2013, we need to get our year end lists out there.  One of the things I am most proud of from the previous year is the launch of the ‘Da’ is Hip Hop? weekly series.  From the Sal Garcia directed trailer to the 40+ responses from hip hoppers spanning 9 countries on 4 continents, it was great to hear about what hip hop meant to so many different parts of the United States and the World.  As 2013 wraps up and we look for new ways to improve #DWisHH, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite responses.  That being said, they were all interesting and we gotta thank everyone that contributed, promoted, shared, retweeted, READ/WATCHED/LISTENED, and told a friend. Make sure you to catch up on all of 2013’s “DWiHH” but if you want a primer, check out the Top 10 below.  What does hip hop mean to YOU?
