"The Hip Hop Handbook" is the brand for outstanding urban education and entertainment.
From school assemblies to instructional videos our company of world class performers and entertainers bring you the best in hip hop culture. Created by Jairus Green and Justin Murta in 2002 they began by marketing and creating a instructional book on the various Hip Hop elements.
After publishing the first book they started creating a curriculum in which they found that they could make a positive impact on youth and educate a broad base to the benefits of hip hop. Teachers across the country embraced the book and supported the opportunity of bringing this exciting experience to the classroom.
In the beginning of 2006 they created a performance showcase by the same name. Currently, they have performed in over 500 shows in 40 states and traveled through the 48 continental states, clocking over 85,000 miles per school year! To date they have performed for over 250,000 students from elementary to college levels and expanded Hip Hop culture awareness.
The Hip Hop Handbook is available for instructional assemblies, workshops, as well as festivals and corporate events. The Hip Hop Handbook recently opened for MxPx at the Microsoft Zune’s 2008 corporate holiday event, after receiving an incredible response at the 2007 Zune holiday event performing in conjunction with Biz Markie.
After hundreds of successful shows Hip Hop Handbook began developing other lines of educational based videos and soundtracks. We educate young folks about the history of hip-hop, along with hands-on instruction of breakdancing, emceeing, deejaying and aerosol arts. Volume one is already available at retail stores national and internationally and other volumes will be released throughout the year. All of our material contains positive performance and entertainment that is sure to inspire.
