Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

April 24, 2015


Yesterday was Bavu Blakes Day in Austin, and it’s always exciting to see the city honor local musicians. In addition to the music Bavu has created, he’s made many contributions to the Austin hip-hop scene. All the way from his beginnings, through Hip Hop Hump Day, and his support of other musicians in Austin, to his recent releases, Bavu has been a champion of hip-hop and a measured, informed, and hard-working artist, community supporter and mentor. Bavu helped Weird City Fest with our kid’s emcee training program last year and it’s obvious to anyone that interacts with him that he cares about the youth in Austin and what they can get from hip-hop and what hip-hop can give back to them. I hope you’ll take some cues from Bavu’s support of our community and seize the opportunity to celebrate local artists today, many of whom are in the HHH mix this week and have been featured in previous mixes.
