State of the Culture is hitting the road this summer. A series of REVOLT Summits will trek through America with the first stop set for New York City on July 24 at Brooklyn's Kings Theatre. General admission tickets are now available free of charge through the REVOLT Summit website, but VIP tix are on sale exclusively at select NYC AT&T stores. Queen Naija will also be performing at the NYC event.
The launch Hip-Hop Summit will feature the first-ever live taping of REVOLT's State of the Culture with Joe Budden,Remy Ma, Jinx, and A$AP Ferg as a special guest contributor to the program. "I’m excited that the REVOLT Summit is going to be in New York this year because there’s so much untapped talent that I know will benefit from it," said Remy. "I’m also excited to be doing our first State of The Culture live taping. I always love the energy when I get together with Joe & Jinx and I’m super appreciative to Revolt for giving us a platform to share our voices."
The rapper-turned-media personality recognizes the importance of industry events like this taking place within the hip-hop ethos. "The REVOLT Summit this year may be the most important thus far, especially as we enter a space where gathering like-minded people to share information is crucial," Budden declared. "You can expect to see many special faces at the summit including Jinx, Remy and I live on stage to bring the SOTC panel to the fans in person."
Future Summits are scheduled to hit Atlanta from Sept. 12 to Sept. 14 and Los Angeles on Oct. 24 through Oct. 26 this fall. "Revolt continues to play a vital role in the media space, because it gives the urban music community a platform with perspective that only revolt personalities can give. On that note I’m excited for season two of SOTC to begin," Budden concluded.
