Tickets for The Purple Tape
Featuring the New Song Academy Students, BROS & Wordsmith, The Purple Tape is a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop. A local radio station is giving away four free tickets to the Fresh 2 Def Fest in Baltimore, MD if someone can find the last "Purple Tape" in existence. It's a purple-tinted cassette pressing of Raekwon's (Wu-Tang Clan) 1995 solo debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Only 10,000 cassettes were printed guaranteeing it would only fall into the hands of the most devoted Raekwon/Wu-Tang fans. The search for the purple tape ends up being a lesson in Hip Hop History as the students realize the culture of Hip Hop is a way of living. Whether its MCing, DJ’ing, break dancing or graffiti; Hip Hop has influenced the way they talk, dress, dance and present themselves to the public. Songs from the aforementioned artists will lend a soundtrack to this Hip Hop treasure hunt.
