Who We Are
I Am Hip-Hop Magazine is produced by the charitable youth led organization No Bounds www.nobounds.org.uk
The aim of the magazine was to use the Hip-Hop culture to influence and reinforce positivity within society especially amongst the youth and disadvantaged.
Available as a yearly print edition and online website, the magazine embraces all elements of Hip-Hop culture especially the 5th element ‘Knowledge’. With articles on social issues, interviews and reviews of Hip-Hop artists, poetry, education, well-being and conscious arts, the magazine has become a Hip-Hop collectable. We have been fortunate enough to be able to interview some of Hip-hop’s greats such as Immortal Technique, Dead Prez, Phife Dawg, The Last Poets, Pete Rock, Pharaohe Monch, Jedi Mind Tricks, Ghetts, Onyx, Boots Riley – to name just a few!
So far we have produced 5 successful print issues, which have been sold online and stocked in various shops and cafes in the UK including Tate Modern, Somerset House, Housmans Bookstore, Chip Shop Brixton, as well as across the globe in USA, Brasil, Portugal, Ireland, Uganda, India, Colombia and China.
I Am Hip Hop Magazine has branched out into radio, visual content with GlobalFaction, events, youth mentor programs and rap therapy workshops! Hip-Hop don’t stop – we have made it our mission to fully embrace the roots of the Hip-Hop culture and provide a voice to the voiceless. In a world where we are constantly told what to think and do, we aim to provide an alternative, independent positive platform.
We have a collective of volunteers who donate their time and skills whether that’s to write, produce content, photograph, curate, help with marketing and more! We are always looking for new writers and helpers to join our collective.
