According to The Boston Globe, the event took place during the opening of the Equinox Fitness Club in Boston’s Back Bay. “The city’s really doing something about making life better for it’s young people,” DMC told The Globe. “You see so much hope in Boston’s young people. So much evolution. There is so much life here.”

Little Rock, Arkansas teenagers are quickly flocking to a new after school program called Arkansas Arts Hip-Hop School. According to KATV Channel 7, the three month program is intended to keep kids off the street and teach the four elements of hip-hop — break-dancing, DJing, rapping and graffiti. “If they’re bored, kids have a tendency get into trouble,” Hip-Hop School teacher, T.J. Detter, told KATV. “This is a real positive way for kids to use a lot of energy to express themselves because expressing yourself is a good way to deal with some of your stress as a young person.”
