Keepers of the Art kick off 6th annual Showcase with EPMD, Kid Capri, Dee-1 and more at Lock 3


AKRON, OH – It’s that time of year again for the Keepers of the Art Music Showcase (formerly known as the Akron Hip-Hop Showcase), an annual family friendly event celebrating the golden age of hip-hop culture with true school hip-hop artists, youth outreach, food vendors, shopping and live graffiti art demonstrations. Held this Labor Day weekend in downtown Akron’s Lock 3 (located at 200 S. Main St, 44333) the lineup for this 6th-year event is open for all ages and will feature performances by EPMD and DJ Scratch, Kid Capri, Grand Puba, Masta Ace, J-Live and J.Rawls the evening of Saturday, Aug. 31, all for just $10. Doors open at 6 p.m., show time is 7 p.m.


“This is the hip-hop event northeast Ohio looks forward to all year. With this year’s lineup of iconic hip-hop figures we would like to invite the rest of the state and surrounding areas to Akron to see what we have taking place here,” said Bay Shaun Seay, special events coordinator for Keepers of the Art.


Keepers’ of the Art Executive Director, Ismail Al-Amin added, “In the midst of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, hip-hop culture is often misrepresented and demonized. It is time to honestly examine and re-define the images of Black and Brown people in mass media. One way that this can be accomplished is by restoring diversity of content and imagery via radio and television. The Keepers of the Art Music Showcase does just that. It provides a nostalgic look back at “Golden Age” or pre-commercialized rap music when individualism, diversity of image and artistic freedom was the rule, and a time when it was impossible to put all Black and Brown youth in a box and label them violent, under-educated and degenerate.”


To kick things off, Keepers of the Art will also be producing the “Teen Forum” television program that deals with the everyday issues impacting teens and attempts to bring them into a positive light to uplift and motivate the teen audience and viewers. The first taping of the Teen Forum will take place on Saturday, August 31 at the Buchtel Community Learning Center. Topics of interest are – popular culture and the media, education, history and culture, mental health, criminal justice/penal systems, family, drugs/alcohol, teen sex, youth violence and civic engagement. Special guests for the taping will be hip-hop artist and former educator Dee-1, a native of New Orleans, LA and Columbus, OH native, J.Rawls, a hip-hop producer. This event is not open to the public.

Summary: Get in front of the top tastemakers at Ohio Hip Hop Awards Showcase Tour

The Ohio Hip Hop Awards & Music Conference honors the hard work and achievements of the state’s urban arts culture. Although Hip Hop is the conference’s primary focus, it promotes, celebrates, and embraces all forms of urban music & entertainment.

This coming June, the Ohio Hip Hop Awards “Summer Showcase Tour” (OHHA) will be hitting up 7 cities in Ohio, producing a widely publicized talent showcase competition. At these various tour stops, the OHHA will bring out local and regional music fans, radio personalities, and media to view the performances. The competition is evaluated by a panel of judges from the OHHA board, and various local and regional tastemakers that are relevant to each market. At the conclusion of the tour, OHHA will hold a live press conference streamed via their official website, where the acts with the top 5 scores from the entire competition are revealed to the public. These acts win a performance slot at the main event award show ceremony and concert in September, along with the added benefit of being built into the marketing of the main event – all flyers, posters, social media promotions, radio and TV commercials, and press releases. All second place runner-ups will be invited to perform at the OHHA’s official pre-party the day before the main event. Artists are allowed to compete in any one city of their choice, or in multiple cities/as many cities as they want.

The OHHA will guarantee one (1) ReverbNation artist a complimentary slot for the full tour (7 cities) and also guarantee two (2) other ReverbNation artists a complimentary slot for 1 city of their choosing. All artists who submit through ReverbNation, whether chosen or not, will get 2 complimentary tickets to attend any one tour event of their choosing.

Performance Details: Performances are 5 minutes each, and set up for track performaces will be provided including turntables, computer with USB inputs, and CD player. Live bands are allowed but will need to provide their own equipment to facilitate their performance. Each act also gets 20 tickets to every showcase they register for, which can be given to friends or family to attend & support them in the competition, or sold to fans for profit. Tickets have a value of $10 each, and any money made from tickets sold remains with the artists. [$200 value]
