DJ’s bring their rotation of rhythms telling their stories through spinning records & showing their skills by mixing cutting & scratching. B-Boys/ B-Girls, breakers, and hip hop dancers lay down thier new moves on vinyl floor adorned with the signatures of “graff” artist.

The Hip Hop Expo has become an event that many midwest hip hop enthusiast use as a place to network & voice their reverence for the culture.
