MTV2 is paying tribute to the five elements of Hip Hop this week with a documentary entitled “The Elements.” Consisting of five episodes, each episode of “The Elements” will focus on one of the elements of Hip Hop which include emceeing, breakdancing, deejaying, beat boxing, and the art of graffiti.
The five-part series aired yesterday, February 23 and will continue until Friday, February 27. And for those who have missed any episode a compilation including all five episodes will air on March 1 at 6:30 p.m.
“The Elements'” first episode, ‘The MC,’ which aired yesterday, featured local emcees from the New York area including Jesse James, Webbafied, and Fight Klub veteran Iron Solomon.
“Everyone who steps on our stage cosigns the fact that it’s the most authentic Hip Hop feeling they’ve had,” Big Zoo, co-founder of End of The Weak open mic contest explained. “Ultimately it’s the spirit of Hip Hop that keeps us all moving forward.”
The episode also gave viewers an exclusive look at a night of performances at End of the Weak, which holds the distinction of being New York City’s longest running Hip Hop open mic.
Each episode will air at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on MTV2 and will air as part of MTV2‘s Sucker Free Week.
