It’s been said that hip-hop is the most vibrant and cultural art you’ll ever come across. Last Saturday, a group of influencers and key tastemakers came together to celebrate this thought with great music and delicious food. Beats and Brunch LA was presented by Dizon Dreams and LA Mixer to celebrate the best in West Coast sounds with a hip-hop themed brunch.
The day started with specially handcrafted cocktails like the Run DMC, Wutang is Forever, Thug Passion and even included a sneak peak at Kulture LA’s fall line. Next up was a performance by violinist Miracle McKinney who paid tribute to some classic hip-hop tracks including Ice Cube’s “It Was A Good Day”.
The main event was an all-star speaking panel full of seasoned players in the business. The panel included Ervin ‘EP’ Pope (produced Jay-Z & Snoop Dogg), Curtiss King (Artist and Producer for Top Dawg Entertainment), Free The Robots (Alpha Pup Records) and Besidone (Revolt TV) and moderated by Brittany Boston (Founder/CEO of Musicology). This group shared their stories about coming up in the music industry but also gave some words of wisdom on how hard work and perseverance can lead to success. Special thanks to the remarkable Chef Lovely on whipping up such appetizing dishes and giving us all something to look forward to post panel.
The best way to sum it all up can be done by Tupac Shakur who said, “If you can’t find something to live for, you best find something to die for”. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates on the next brunch!
