About End of the Weak

End of the Weak (Eodub) was founded in 2000 as one of the few weekly platforms in NYC where hip-hop performers were able to 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 15 countries across 5 continents and 22 cities around the globe. Our MC Challenge has given thousands of 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 our success and allowed to us bring together hip-hop lovers across the world.

Eodub is now a multi national entertainment lifestyle brand. We produce events, multimedia and clothing that represent our uniquely global hip hop flavor.

We welcome you to the 1st End of the Weak International Hip Hop Festival in Kampala, Uganda.

The event is made possible with support from

UNCC – Uganda National Cultual Centre
Goethe Institut
Bayimba Foundation
Urban Aksent Music
Afrika Arts Kollective
Sawa Records
Hot 100
Urban Hype
Sade Workshop

And the Entire UG Hip Hop Community.


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
— to design and produce t-shirts to distribute to fans and participants
— to record and produce a compilation album
