THE UG HIP-HOP FAMILY GATHERING
By Byaruhanga Felix (@TheNinjaFelix)
In case you want to know the current state of Ugandan hip-hop or are there any people in Uganda that do/support local hip-hop then you need to attend the “UG hip-hop Family Gathering”. The support goes further than quoting punchlines on social media, asking for free download links and page likes/follows. This will be the fourth edition of The Hip-Hop family party. It’s an annual event where the fam (hip-hop fans), gets together to meet and greet. According to Cleo one of the major organizers behind it says this is where artists get to meet fans and vice-versa. “We will be having a lot of activity this year, like Freestyles and Cyphers, Grafitti. There will also be some surprise performances, Rap Battles and Battle of Producers. we shall also be officially releasing The S.U.P.E.R Cypher video” said Cleo.
