Verboten will host a fundraiser for the benefit of B.E.A.T. (Bringing Education and Art Together), a nonprofit organization based in NYC which produces pioneering music and dance programs for some of the most under-served students and communities in New York City. Early Keith Haring collaborator “Little Angel” Ortiz (aka LA Roc/ LAII) will be giving his signature treatment live to a Blondie “Rapture” record, joining a roster of major heavyweights in the New York street art scene like DCEVE, Korn, Elle, and the Mirf, who will all donate a one of a kind piece for raffle. Joe Conzo, the man who took hip hop’s baby pictures, will be adding a selection of work from his deep portfolio to win as well. Bringing the beats will be JSmoke from the legendary DJ collective “The Allies” that brought you A-Trak and DJ Craze, followed by Brooklyn native and B.E.A.T. Makers Director, Michael “Dhundee” Edwards.
