Despite what you hear on the radio, true hip-hop isnt about Escalades, VIP rooms, or Superman[ing] that ho. In fact, local dance troupe Foot Klan equates hip-hop with higher inner peace helping other people. Representing the local scene since the early 90s, the Klans goal is to enrich the community by creating a safe and peaceful environment for people to connect and share their love of hip-hop culture. One of the best examples takes place each Wednesday, when Foot Klan opens its practice space to the public for Underground Hotspot. The all-ages night features dancing, DJ battles, spoken-word competitions, and former Phoenix Sun Cedric Ceballos spinning the wheels of steel.
Wed., Feb. 6, 10 p.m.-1 a.m., 2008
