Hip Hop Docs: DMV Bridging The Gap – A Historic Account of DC, MD and VA Hip Hop

by Yvette Travillian

DC, Maryland and Virgina (also known as the DMV) has been in the hip-hop game for a long-ass time, but it’s only been recently that the area has been getting its due shine. Now, in-demand producer (and DMV native)  JUDAH is  bringing to the big screen an awesome look into the history of the music scene behind the Capitol – check out the details below:

After a monumental photo shoot in front of the Lincoln Theatre, the still-life portrait of the DMV’s (DC, Maryland, Virginia) hip-hop generation comes to life.

On Saturday April 17th, popular DC-producer JUDAH partnered with the Historical Society of Washington, DC (in conjunction with SolSource DC/Hip Hop Cinema Cafe) to bring the district, the first of its kind, an account of the region’s own hip-hop history of the last decade and its position in the music industry. Directed by Dre of ABB Video and Sophia “The Historian” Nelson of Ordinary People Books, the collaboration with JUDAH sheds light on the journey for exposure and collectivity in rap music for DMV hip-hop artists.

Commentary from: Studio 43 artist X.O. (also of Diamond District), MCA recording artist Black Indian, 368 Music Group artist Phil Ade, radio personality DJ Heat, noted producer Kev Brown (and many others!)
