To say that Audubon is gifted is a massive understatement. The man can rap, he can sing and for the last few years has consistently put out projects that are multi-dimensional, complex and compelling. Not to mention that he gave our beloved Washington Heights a national and international spotlight with MTV’s Washington Heights show. This Monday, October 24th Audubon will be doing his thing in the foyer of the magnificent United Palace alongside Tess and April Oneill. The event is free but make sure you get there early. Doors open at 6 pm. It will be a night to remember.
Tess is not an artist you can easily put in a box. Her music is part R&B, part Rock ‘N’ Roll, part Hip-Hop and 100% badass. She is a bona fide rebel and her music is a testament to a free spirit that refuses to conform or contain her genius. Tess has rocked stages both near and far and on Monday, October 24th she will grace the foyer of the United Palace alongside April Oneill and Audubon. The event is free but make sure you get there early. Doors open at 6 pm. It will be a night to remember.
From the moment you hear April Oneill sing you get it. Her heart, her soul and her pain permeates every note. The young talented songstress commands a stage with a presence and a power that will surprise you. Come check her out this Monday, October 24th at the United Palace as she does her thing alongside Audubon and Tess. The event is free but make sure you get there early. Doors open at 6 pm. It will be a night to remember.
Uptown Hip-Hop is coming along nicely. It is a must that you spread that Uptown Love and check out the latest from Uptown’s own Dubwork of the mighty IOD camp. The highly anticipated project is available now on iTunes and is another important milestone for Hip-Hop coming out of Washington Heights and Inwood. Get up on it, you can thank us later.

A new wave of art galleries are starting to move up uptown from Chelsea and lower Manhattan, and it is time to ask serious questions about their impact and what we can do to guarantee Harlem survives culturally.

How does one defend one’s turf — the place where one lives alongside the people one identifies with? How does one defend that place against incursions by agents or forces that seem to want to change that environment, make it inhospitable, when it had felt like where one belongs for a long time? I like the term turf, though it is a corny word that brings to mind overwrought musicals with overly stylized characters. I like it because it connotes the ground, the soil and grass underneath one’s feet that can feel like one’s personal preserve.
Harlem is a preserve of a certain spirit and culture that seems worth defending. It’s not an exaggeration to say that it is under threat, that it is being invaded by institutions and economic forces that aim to transform it, and, intentionally or not, make it less affordable for its long time residents. The median household income in Harlem is now about $37,000 per year, as opposed to about $50,000 for the whole of New York, yet with buildings like One Morningside Park going up, selling two-bedroom condominiums at $2.5 million that median figure will not last much longer. Harlem’s turf is getting smaller, and what’s making slowly shrivel into a husk of its former self is gentrification.
