Grammy's Celebrate The Evolution Of Hip-Hop During Grammy Week

(AllHipHop News) This year the Grammy Foundation’s Music Preservation Project will explore hip-hop as an art form in a celebration called “Word Revolution: A Celebration Of The Evolution Of Hip-Hop."

The Grammy Foundation’s goal is to work towards preserving the music’s rich history, by focusing on the contributions from the genre of Hip-Hop and its influence on America’s culture.

The red carpet event will take place on February 10th at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles, and will feature an extensive list of guests including, but not limited to; 9th Wonder, Marsha Ambrosius,, Arrested Development, Beat Freaks, DJ Beverly Bond, El Debarge, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Kid Capri, Lil’ Mama, MC Lyte, Chrissette Michele, Phife of A Tribe Called Quest, DJ Skee and Paul Wall.

The Grammy Week celebration, which is being presented by Centric and the BET Network, will not just recognize the genre of hip-hop, but will also promote the Grammy Foundation's mission of educating the public about music history.

In addition to a list of great hip-hop contributors, Neil Portnow President/CEO of the Recording Academy and the Grammy Foundation will be in attendance at the multi-media presentation, which will include performances and appearances by other music industry leaders and members of the Recording Academy.

The event, which is open to the general public at a cost of $25, kicks off at 6:00 PM PST on Thursday, February 10th.
