"You Don't Join Us. We Join You."
The Hip Hop Congress Network is informed by a grassroots coalition of leaders across the country and worldwide who are actively using Hip Hop culture to build real-time solutions. As a reader, your voice is significant to spreading that word.

The time to address all aspects of local, regional and national leadership is 2020. We share a vision of the future built on your understanding of our communal needs. For over 25 years the Hip Hop Congress has united artists, local organizers, students and educators under an umbrella of civic action and social awareness.

Hip Hop Congress remembers Reo "Robot" Moore: Original Oakland Boogaloo.
Robot In Paradise.
It is with a heavy heart that we shared the news of legendary Oakland Boogaloo, Reo “Robot” Moore's passing on Sunday, Oct. 11th. Reo was well-known for his signature moves of the “Dinosaur/Dinorama”, “Sinbad” and “Dime-Stop.” He helped spread the art form nationwide during his time serving in the military throughout the 1970's.

Reo’s passion for dance is what kept him alive even while on dialysis. A hospital visit from Lonnie Green inviting him to be a Master Teacher and judge at The International Strutter’s Room Master Camp in 2019 was enough reason for him to dance out his final year. Our hearts are with his family and loved ones at this time as we honor his legacy as a Bay Area inner-city Black dance culture pioneer.
