Every Friday we’ll get your weekend started with some solid plans. These are the things we think you should watch, read or do over the next few days. Enjoy!
THINGS TO DO
Music in the Park
These are the last days of Summer 16, so get outdoors and enjoy the sun while you still can. Check out your local park's calendar and find all the free live entertainment. Live music in the park is a great way to chill with friends or meet new people and connect.
THINGS TO WATCH
The Get Down
The multi-talented Baz Luhrmann and a team of collaborators -- Oscar-winner Catherine Martin, legendary MC Nas, Grandmaster Flash, Pulitzer-winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis, and hip-hop historian Nelson George -- have created a music-driven drama that documents the emergence of a new art form.
Set in the late 1970s, when New York was at the brink of bankruptcy and disco was dying out, the rise of hip-hop is told through the lives, art, music and dance of a group of young people in the South Bronx.
It's Bigger Than Hip Hop : The Rise of the Post Hip Hop Generation
This book takes a look at the rise of a generation that sees beyond the smoke and mirrors of corporate-manufactured rap and is building a movement that will change not only the face of pop culture, but the world.
Sit with this book this weekend and dive into hip hop like you've never seen it.
