MN Hip Hop News
There are many ways to honor a person of greatness, this could be done through marches, memorials, murals or even song, but bringing people together to witness the battle element of Hip Hop is very unique.
When one thinks of battling particularly in Hip Hop culture, they may think off the top of an MC battle or DJ battle, rarely does our consciousness think about how beat producers’ would battle? Same rules basically as the above two... lose once and you’re out.. only come with your best cause in the famous words of Rakim.. “no mistakes aloud”.

This February will mark the 3rd year of The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition organizing a "28 Days Of Spit" compilation project featuring nothing but Minnesota Hip Hop talent. The last two years have generated a lot of love and support for the project, with '28 Days Of Spit 2015' being released exclusively through our new web platform here. This year MN-HHC will be another hot February with a host of great local Hip-Hop!
WHAT IS 28 DAYS OF SPIT?
28 Days Of 'Real' Spit originally started as a simple concept during a M.A.C. House LLC meeting.. “During the month of February, we as Hip Hop, need to present nothing but 28 days of that Real Shit!” It was then presented to The Minnesota Hip Hop Coalition for support and we couldn’t agree more! This simple phrase evokes a serious commitment to present the most forward thinking concepts that specifically help to preserve Real Hip Hop. So this month is strictly about promoting the higher-self in ALL of us and present this evolved way of being in the best light possible.
