About the event

In honor of the monumental 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop, the Challenger Learning Center is thrilled to partner with the FSU College of Social Science and Public Policy to present an unforgettable evening of hip hop culture and entertainment. Our celebration will include a screening of the brand-new documentary "Mixtape" and a Submersive Sounds Hip Hop Showcase featuring incredible local talent.

Experience the Premiere of "MIXTAPE"

Before the era of radio play, the internet, and social media, there were mixtapes – the unsung heroes that transformed Hip Hop from a subculture into the heart of mainstream music. In this documentary "MIXTAPE," released in August 2023, we journey through the underground origins of Hip Hop with insights from legends such as Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, KRS-One, DJ Khaled, 2 Chainz, DJ Clue, N.O.R.E., and more. Discover the untold story that shaped the genre we know and love today.

Following the screening of "MIXTAPE," immerse yourself in a spectacular Hip Hop showcase featuring local talent:

Our DJ for this special night is none other than Tallahassee's own DJ Demp, a legend in hip hip who has spun tracks for some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Luke, Trick Daddy, Lil Flip, David Banner, Trina, and Juvenile. DJ Demp was awarded the Key to the City of Tallahassee in January 2023 for his continued dedication and commitment to the community.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop, delve into its origins, and experience the power of local talent. Hosted by Dr. Lisa Munson, Florida State University Sociology Professor and Author of the "Sociology of Hip Hop Culture."

Join us at the Challenger Learning Center on November 16, 2023, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Get ready to immerse yourself in the rhythm, history, and artistry of hip hop like never before!
