“Brought to you by local skateboard shop/record store/street supply depot Rec Shop and hip-hop promotion/multimedia company Poor Vida, The Elements of Hip-Hop celebrates its 3rd year at the Green Elephant. The all-day event is our local underground's answer to the summer festival game and is one of the most ambitious and unique affairs Dallas has to offer. The extravaganza will feature two stages with more than 40 live hip-hop performances (Awkquarius, Playdough, the Mohicans, Brain Gang and DFW Cypher are but a few of the acts), a few live bands, b-boy and b-girl battles, turntable showcases and live graffiti art. "One of the things we wanted to emphasize is that this is educational," says Poor Vida's Donny Benavidez, who stresses that one of the goals of Elements is to illuminate the local hip-hop community. "A big knock on local hip-hop is that people don't work together and that it's hard to build, but we are proof," says fellow Poor Vida promoter Joel Salazar. "We are doing it." ”
