The event was part of the Making Beats Count country tour brings US-based art communities together around a shared vision: the power of music, visual and performing arts in building communities of service.

The forth entry in the contest, “The Foundation“, brought together national graffiti artists to work in partnership with NYC-based artists and musicians to shoot a music video and create a permanent mural that speaks to local communities.

The NYC event was organized by Beats, Rhymes & Relief in partnership with Universal Zulu Nation, Peoples Survival Program, and The National Black Theatre around the celebrations of the 40th anniversary of the Universal Zulu Nation and the 39th Birthday of Hip-Hop.

The event was attended by 150 people and featured Hip-Hop icons including Afrika Bambaataa, an iconic figure who is credited as being the “father of Hip-Hop.” A winter clothing drive collected items for the needy in the Harlem area.

The next Making Beats Count event will be held in Los Angeles, California in early 2014.
