Hello Peeps it’s been a long time. Last time I wrote about Krip-Hop we just got out of a wonderful Diversifying Hip-Hop: Krip-Hop Homo-Hop event at University of California at Berkeley. Well a lot of things are popping at Krip-Hop Nation.

Krip-Hop Homo-Hop event has caught attention of New York University so this year Rob Da Noize Temple of the Sugar Hill Gang and Krip-Hop Nation will present at NYU on the evolution of Krip Hop, Krip Hop Nation, and the disability rights movement. Event Details: October 21st - Rob Da Noize Temple Speaks @ NYU The Kimmel Center60 Washington Square South Room 602 7pm-8: 30pm October 30th - Rob Da Noize Performs at NYU's Diva Ball Celebration The Kimmel Center60 Washington Square South E&L Auditorium, 4th floor7pm-11pm. NYU wants to bring Diversify Hip-Hop: Krip-Hop Homo-Hop to their campus next year. We’ll begin talking and organizing this after the holidays.

In 2009 Krip-Hop Nation teamed up with Handicapped Art Works in München, Augsburg, Germany to start working on a new international project, Mcees With Disabilities, MWD. MWD is an international CD Project of Mcees With Disabilities from around the world. MWD has collaborated with talented Hip-Hop artists with disabilities from around the world to create not only an international CD but to form a community to put a spotlight on the talents and projects of musicians with disabilities. Today MWD has artists in Germany, US, UK, Africa, Italy and Spain and is still growing.

After almost a year working together through the internet, Binkiwoi of Handicapped Art Works and I, Leroy will meet face to face in Binkiwoi’s home on October 29th to talk about MWD with a music manager and to put together MWD’s Demo. MWD’s process and creation has happened online so this is the first time we will see each other. After that creative meeting, Leroy/Krip-Hop heads to WOMEX World Music Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark where Staff Benda Bilili of the Congo will perform and be awarded the number one CD in Europe. Staff is an all disabled musician band. My sister, Pamela Juhl, who is a reporter in Copenhagen and I will cover the festival interviewing Staff and others at the festival.

After Denmark, Krip-Hop will be off to Philly and NY for a Krip-Hop presentations at Temple University and City College in New York. So stay tune for updates…
