Part of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts’ restored commitment to local artists, “Clas/sick Hip-Hop: 1993 Edition,” ups the intersectionality as well as the ante of the juxapositional series, which debuted in 2012. Curated by Marc Bamuthi Joseph, YBCA’s Chief of Programs and Pedagogy, Clas/sick revisits the “Golden Age” year of 1993, a seminal period in the development and evolution of the hip-hop genre, and a year which saw groundbreaking releases from artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Digable Planets, Wu-Tang Clan, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Souls of Mischief, Freestyle Fellowship, Black Moon, Guru’s Jazzmatazz, KRS-One, Del the Funky Homosapien, 2Pac, The Coup, and many others. 1993 is also notable in that it was the year YBCA opened its doors and began its mission as a Left Coast-centered outpost for contemporary arts.

“Clas/sick” is a multi-disciplinary affair, which features live band performances conducted by two musical directors – JooWan Kim and Kev Choice, directing Ensemble Mik Nawooj and the Kev Choice Ensemble respectively –; 25 guest emcees; a cappella chorus Young Gifted & Black; dancers from the 50 Cent Tabernacle; video design by David Szlasa; a dance party of Golden Age hip-hop gems with DJs Kevvy Kev, Sake One, Dion Decibels, Davey D and Fuze; 93-second video testimonials by local culturati; and ancillary film series and dance classes.
