Last Friday I witnessed more than 20 local MCs recreate the hip hop catalog of 1993
backed on two different stages by two of the Bay Area’s foremost young composers:
JooWan Kim performing with his chamber orchestra Ensemble Mik Nawooj

and Oakland’s own Kev Choice (Lauryn Hill’s former musical director) performing with the 10-piece Kev Choice Ensemble.

And when I heard the hook “Snoop Doggy Dohhh-oooo-ohhh-oooo-oooggg” OPERA-style, that’s when I knew…
hip hop is all grownz up now.
