Five Out Of Five

New York: Five Out Of Five from Red Bull Music Academy on href="">Vimeo.

The Red Bull Music Academy pays tribute to hip hop, right where it all began. Over the course of five days, five classic albums from five boroughs are revisited via workshops and public talks in each respective borough. At night, the artists re-create their seminal work for a special concert, bridging the gap from old to new school. The five albums are: ‘The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick’ (1988), Black Moon’s ‘Enta Da Stage’ (1993), ‘Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’ (1993), ‘The Infamous’ by Mobb Deep (1995), and Dipset’s ‘Diplomatic Immunity’ (2003). 
Full schedule after the cut.

"Come Together" exhibit runs through November 1
RZA's canvas sits on the wall facing a display case full of original Picasso plates. Chuck D's takes its place beside Salvador Dali's celebrated Surrealist Piano sculpture. The Art Of Drums collection occupies the interior wing across from the Marilyn Monroe prints. This is the world-famous Andrew Weiss Gallery in Beverly Hills, home to "Come Together", a two-month exhibition of the artwork of Los Angeles creativity house SceneFour and its iconic collaborators: RZA of the Wu-Tang ClanChuck D of Public EnemyBootsy Collinsof Bootsy's Rubber Band, P-Funk and the JBsHieroglyphics CrewDJ QbertShavo Odadjian from System of a DownGeorge LynchMatt Sorum from Velvet Revolver/Guns N RosesFrankie "Kash" Waddy from Parliament-FunkadelicAngelo Moore ofFishbone and Page Hamilton of Helmet. With the help of their legendary friends, SceneFour partners Ravi Dosaj and Cory Danzigerare spearheading a new movement in the art world: collaborative art. And based upon the September 14th opening night party, a kick-off to the exhibit which runs until November 1 at Andrew Weiss Gallery in Beverly Hills, the exhibition is set to be a blockbuster.
"Come Together" is unlike anything ever attempted in the art world, as a discerning group of musical icons from rap, hip-hop, rock, heavy metal, and funk worked together over the last several years on their own fine art creation with SceneFour. At the conclusion of each collaboration, the team releases artwork, all numbered and signed by the artist. Andrew Weiss, a legend in the art world for four decades, saw the merit in SceneFour's collaborative art movement early on. "When Warhol had his factory, people thought it was a joke at the time," says Weiss. "[The 'Come Together' collection] is reminiscent of that. You have the artists, designers and printers all involved in the creation of the art." 
This exhibition marks the first time all of these creations are available to see and purchase in one location. Viewed as a whole, the collection is sprawling, yet unified in tone and vision. RZAODB and The Genius reinterpret the American Revolution on Victory Or Death, named "The Greatest Painting Of 2010" by Village Voice. Chuck D stands at the Arizona/Mexico border of an Orwellian America not too far into the future in "By The Time I Got To Arizona". And the Art Of Drums collection takes a stab into the future of art, using a shortlist of the world's most acclaimed drummers to literally capture sound on canvas. Opening night’s attendance was unprecedented, with artists like Danger Mouse, David Yow of The Jesus Lizard and Jurassic 5's Chali 2na present alongside Chuck, Shavo, Q-Bert and the rest of SceneFour's collaborators.
