Bulova x Windows of Hip Hop Host Hip Hop Celebration This Saturday 9/21 at Mall at Bay Plaza – FREE

Bulova and Windows of Hip Hop (WoHH), a Bronx Non-Profit Organization dedicated to preserving the history and education of hip hop, celebrate ‘Back to School’ season, partnering with New York based artist, Nicholai Khan, to design an exclusive storefront window of the world famous Macy’s Herald Square.

The custom window celebrates a new academic year as Bulova and WoHH continue together in their mission to preserve the history of hip hop and keep the love for music alive amongst the youngest of generations.

Together Bulova and WoHH are working to promote the educational, communal, and historical perspective of Hip Hop, specifically in the Bronx at CS 55 Elementary School. Earlier this year, the first part of their partnership took place with the launch of a hip hop music program. The next phase will be the construction of the first-ever recording studio within a New York school, for children to explore and express their musical creativity.

This Saturday, join WOHH and hip hop legend Grandmaster Caz for an interactive workshop, open mic, and other family activities at the Macy’s at Mall at Bay Plaza at 2 p.m.

Did You Catch Our Bronx Hip Hop Legends in Macklemore’s New Music Video?

After a brief hiatus, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are back with their latest single “Downtown.” The best part about this news is that it features Bronx hip hop legends Grandmaster Melle Mel and Grandmaster Caz.

Read more about the collaboration from Windows of Hip Hop below:

Grandmaster Melle Mel and Grandmaster Caz have been active board members of Windows of Hip Hop since it’s inception in 2012. Windows of Hip Hop (WoHH) is a non profit, Bronx based economic development project promoting the educational, communal, and historical perspective of Hip Hop. The ultimate goal is to create a state of the art, fully interactive, educational institution dedicated to Hip Hop in the Bronx. Melle Mel is excited to see the progress of the organization’s mission.  “The people of the Bronx thought that Windows of Hip Hop and us [the pioneers] opening up an academic center in the Bronx was important. It’s befitting that the people of the Bronx benefit from it the most and spearhead it- that’s why I’m 100% behind it and it’s what we are going to do.”
The organizations founder, Melissa Libran, is ecstatic that Macklemore has acknowledged the history of hip hopand chosen to bridge the gap between the pioneers of the genre and mainstream music. “These past three years have been an amazing experience building the Windows of Hip Hop (WoHH) brand and programs alongside the great architects of Hip Hop and the WOHH team.  We are very excited about the project and we will be revealing soon our newest initiative with Grand Master Melle Mel and Grand Master Caz along side other great hip hoplegends. Congrats to Macklemore and the pioneers featured on this track.”
