Queens Library is hosting "31 Days of Non-Stop Hip Hop" this May. There will be an event, a performance, a jam, at Queens Library every day and the beat won't stop. All programs are free. They are being presented in collaboration with Hip Hop Saves Lives/Negus World.

Queens is the cradle of hip hop, urban fashion, def poetry and everything that goes with it. Queens Library announces its "Elements of Hip Hop" project, which will help preserve Queens' collective urban music history. Hip hop was born here. Hip hop lives here. The project is launching with the biggest celebration of hip hop Queens has seen in years (and Queens NY has seen a lot of music).
