About

Need a break from the  oonts-ooonts-oonts?  We do.  We decided it is time to bring a little bit of classic hip hop to the playa.  Rapper's Delight will be a hip hop themed camp and bar for Burning Man 2011. This is a place to celebrate classic hip hop in all its forms.  Come drop a rhyme, bust a move, and have a drink with us!  We'll be on the 4:30 Plaza!

Hip hop, as a musical genre as well as a social movement, had a very profound impact on the world and social climate we live in today.  It was born out of political unrest and economic struggle, and it birthed a brand new art form.  It also had a major influence on modern day electronic music.  We believe it is an art worth celebrating!  Also, we just really like to rock out to classic songs like Fantastic Voyage, Push It, and Planet Rock. How long has it been since you've listened to the Fugees, Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh, NWA, or Kid n Play?

Afrika Bambaataa, one of the most influential figures in the hip hop movement, said that there are five pillars of hip hop:  djing, mcing, break dancing, graffiti art, and knowledge.  We will incorporate each of these pillars into our camp to bring you the full classic hip hop experience.  We will have a graffiti wall where you can paint, and if you are feelin' fresh you can drop some rhymes.  Thanks to Black Rock Roller Disco, we'll also have a pro break dancing floor, so those of you ready to rock had better bring your best moves.  We will also incorporate hip hop history into the design of the camp, and if anyone is curious for more, we'd be glad to drop some knowledge on you.

Money you donate to this project will be spent primarily on building materials to build, light, and paint/decorate the bar and shade structure, and on actually stocking the bar.  It will also provide paint for the graffiti wall, as well as a generator that will allow us to Pump it Up!
