Clas/sick Hip Hop: 1993 Edition recreates some of 1993’s most successful hiphop songs through a chamber orchestra; Ensemble Mik Nawooj and Oakland’s own Kev Choice, Lauryn Hill’s former musical director, performing with the 11-piece Kev Choice Ensemble.

In 1993, OutKast, A Tribe Called Quest, Snoop Dogg, Wu Tang Clan, and Tupac Shakur all released seminal music that recalibrated the sonic possibilities of the entire genre. 1993 was also the year that YBCA opened its doors with a mission to celebrate both the Bay Area’s local prowess and the globe’s contemporary aesthetic vision. Combining these impulses, Clas/sick Hip Hop challenges more than 15 local MCs to 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 11-piece Kev Choice Ensemble. Tickets are for sale HERE!
