NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Hip Hop Hall of Fame is announcing plans to launch a new Speakers Bureau Service for booking Hip Hop Pioneers and Historians to carry the positive and true story of Hip Hop Music & Culture around the world. At a time when youth culture is targeted for violence the Hip Hop Hall of Fame is stepping forward to lead the efforts to restore the principle values of Peace, Love, Unity, Education, Community, and having Fun back into the public discourse.
The bureau will initially launch with the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Creator-Producer JT Thompson, and Hip Hop Pioneers Easy AD of the Legendary Cold Crush Brothers, and DJ Lord Yoda of the Crash Crew and the Universal Zulu Nation. There will be more Hip Hop Pioneers added to the service over the next quarter.
'It is important to us that the real Hip Hop Pioneers and Golden Era Age artists share their stories and positive hip hop messages with Children, Youth, and Adults in Schools, Churches, Universities, Companies, and in the Communities where we live, serve, and sell products,' stated J.T. Thompson Chairman of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum.
The Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum and Television Awards Show producers have been fielding multiple requests from educational, religious, community and political leaders from cities around the country who would like to host speakers and events in their cities. The main objective of the Speakers Bureau is to give back to the communities that have given so much to Hip Hop History and Economics over the years. 'We have a duty and responsibility in our communities to do all that we can to provide our kids and youth with a safe environment, quality education, access to college, and an opportunity to achieve the American dream,' according to Business Development Manager Bobby Fisher.
