KickStarter for 2014 World Finals in Uganda

This year, for the first time, the international End of the Weak cultural exchange program will take place in Uganda, Africa.

EOW Uganda will host 24 participants from 9 countries to experience Ugandan culture and connect with local artists and people.

This year’s project involves:
— art and music workshops
— music, dance and urban art collaborations recorded, performed and exhibited
— an all-day festival scheduled October 25th where workshop participants will display and perform their creative work
— public panel discussion with local community to share their experiences with Hip Hop culture with the visiting international artists
— grand finalé performance by local and international MCs, dancers, street artists and DJs

The entire cultural exchange program will take place October 18- 27, 2014, with educational workshops October 20-24 and the music festival on October 25, 2014.

The total project cost including travel, accommodation, merchandising, video/photo documentation, studio recording, CD production, and venue rental is over $30,000. Each country has held local fundraisers in their respective countries to support costs for accommodation, transport and other travel expenses.

We are looking to the Kick Starter community to raise ONLY $5000 to help produce the festival.

These funds will be used:
— for venue, sound system and lighting rental

End of the Weak (EOW) was founded in 2000 as one of the few weekly platforms in NYC where hungry MCs could showcase and hone their talent. What started as a small Open Mic in the back of a restaurant has grown into NYC’s longest-running weekly hip-hop show and an International Hip-Hop movement. End Of the Weak has expanded into five continents, twelve countries and twenty-two cities around the globe in our ten years in existence. The MC Challenge has given artists all over the world a new medium to test their talents. The non-confrontational tone of the EOW MC Challenge and the talent of the MC’s that compete in it have catapulted its success and brings together hip-hop lovers across the world. End of the Weak is now a multi national entertainment lifestyle brand and produces events, multimedia and clothing that represents the uniquely global hip hop flavor.

The Universal Zulu Nation is an international hip hop awareness group formed and headed by hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaata. Originally known simply as the Organization, it arose in the 1970s as reformed New York City gang members began to organize cultural events for youths, combining local dance and music movements into what would become known as the various elements of hip hop culture. By the 1980s, hip hop had spread globally, and the Zulu Nation has since established (autonomous) branches in Japan, France, the UK, Australia, South Korea and the Cape Flats in Cape Town South Africa. The Zulu Nation has undergone changes over the past decade. From the late 1980s, at the height of the Afrocentric movement in hip hop (when artists such as KRS-One, Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, the Native Tongues, and Rakim hit success), the movement seemed to be incorporating many doctrines from the Nation of Islam, the Nation of Gods and Earths, and the Nuwaubians. In the 2000s, however, its official website affirmed that the Zulu Nation has left the system of “believing” and instead adheres to Factology versus Beliefs, a philosophy and doctrine that can often be seen in, though is not always exclusive to, Nuwaubianism.


Chicago MC’s Showcase 2/17/13


Darrius Terrell Luckett aka “KD” is a young titan on the rise. His musical journey began at the age of 13, tapping into a creative spark that grew into a passion for rap and hip-hop. Being raised in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago, a neighborhood that unfortunately had and still does have a notorious reputation of poverty and violence, KD had a story to tell. He learned how to channel his anger, aggression and negative energies through his music. This type of energy was the focal point of musical content that is true and from the heart.

KD – My Apologies (produced by D. Brooks)
