AllBmoreHipHop Revives Baltimore Rap’s Town Hall Meeting This Monday
This Monday eventing at 7 p.m., a â€śtown hall meetingâ€ťÂ of sorts is being held for the Baltimore hip-hop community at the Guilford Avenue venue 5 Seasons, which might as well be the communityâ€™s hub. The unique event, which is open to any musician, fan, or participant in the scene with an interest and a $3 donation, is presented by the Baltimore Hip Hop Council, founded in 2007 by Courtney â€śC Loveâ€ť Wheeler–though it looks like local online powerhouse AllBmoreHipHop has taken the reins for this installment.
The organization first presented a monthly town hall meeting in late 2007 and early 2008, and I related a less than flattering anecdote about my experience at one of those events in last yearâ€™s Big Music Issue. But having this kind of organized dialogue about how the cityâ€™s hip-hop community is doing and where it should go next is a solid concept with a great deal of potential, if the right people show up and share their ideas.
