NYCENTRIC was an idea created to go against the current trend in pop culture today. Lately it has become very difficult to go out or turn on the radio without listening to the new dirty south and miami pop craze. I started to feel as if new york city music and subculture was starting to lack an identity even here in new york city. This was frustrating to us considering the rich history of hip-hop culture that was cradled here in the rougher streets of new york city. Our city is the epoch of hip-hop culture, and nycentric is a reminder, a celebration and a symbol of the rebirth of new york. this event will re-enlighten the people about our culture defining city that is new york city.
