The compilation of our first two zines spanning 2013 was called the 2013 Archive. We printed 100 official copies with NEON covers and sold it all over east coast zine fests, readings, and from our shop section. You can read bits and pieces from it here on the site under tag zine #3. Now you can download it. We offer two formats: one for printing and folding yourself, and one for reading on a screen.

On the evening of Saturday, September 14th, The Hip Hop Party for the People will be throwing a fundraiser in order to build a Community Radio Station in North Philly!

The fundraiser will be hosted by S.Frosty and will feature guest performances by some of the city’s brightest talent as well as music by DJ John Morrison.

The cover is only $5 per guest, and proceeds will go directly toward building a truly independent, community controlled broadcasting voice that serves the people!

There is also a crowd-funding website where you can contribute to the project: http://tinyurl.com/pcdqqms
