RISE UP! REPRESENT! (JULY 6-8TH)
The Native Hawaiian Student Services (NHSS) is coordinating a community event series next week called “Rise UP! Represent!” which is an epic series of free workshops, performances, film showcases, and talk story sessions featuring nationally renowned hip hop artists Blue Scholars & Bambu! The event is focused on student leadership and developing community organizing skills. We are hoping to bring together a crowd of CC students & UH Manoa students, as well as community members!
Elements will include Free food, DJʻs, music, spoken word, hip hop dance performances, film showcases and community engagement fairs. All workshops will be led by artists and community activists whose projects creatively address issues of youth empowerment, justice, and social change.

We’ll be presenting workshops at this conference this week at the University of Hawai’i. Big up to the Native Hawaiian Studies dept!
I’m back in Hawaii. No Blue Scholars shows this trip, but I’ll be in Honolulu for a week performing and speaking at the University of Hawaii and Farrington High School with fellow Filipino emcees Bambu and Kiwi. Might hit up a studio session or two. Closing out the week, we’ll all be hitting the stage Friday night (11/12) at Fresh Cafe for Pnoy Apparel’s Shirt The Kids benefit concert. There, Bam will make good on losing a bet to me, for the second year in a row, on the USC vs. Washington football game. Check this video for the backstory:
