On Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3rd, The Mixtape Museum and Young Hackers are hosting Hip-Hop Hacks at Spotify NY.
Hip-Hop Hacks is a two-day hackathon for high school students to explore technology’s role in hip-hop and how the most popular genre in the world inspires technological innovation. Since its inception, hip-hop has evolved in tandem with technology, from turntables and microphones to mediums like vinyl, compact cassettes, mp3s, and now apps and algorithms. Students will study the elements of hip-hop, participate in code and music workshops, network with other students, and learn from music- and tech-industry veterans.
More information is available on the Hip-Hop Hacks website.
