Mighty 4 Celebrates Hip Hop culture

Submitted By Arthur H. Barinque

Since 1998, Mighty 4 has continued to preserve Hip Hop art forms and history. The organizationÕs mission is aiming to create a positive outlet for the youth and empowering them with the tools to drive their creativity. Fueled by music, art and dance, the Mighty 4 strives to educate and provide a foundation for future artists. It has served as the San Francisco Bay AreaÕs only annual Hip Hop cultural festival which hopes to unify and preserve the four cornerstones of what is known as the Hip Hop culture: Emceeing (rap music), style writing (aerosol culture), DJing, and breakinÕ (a.k.a. breakdancing).

On Saturday, Oct. 5, Mighty 4, a local non-profit based out of Union City, held its 15th Anniversary at Temple, a multi-functional venue in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Around 800 people from all over the globe showed up to show their support and appreciation for what Mighty 4 has done for the Hip Hop community and culture.
