RHN will take the culture higher. Hip Hop is a global phenomenon with huge international audiences. The Real Hip Hop Network represents that new independent voice.

The partnership includes co-branding between the magazine and the networks, which is unique to the entertainment community. Effectively beginning the reclamation process for urban news media outlets as relevant and efficient journalistic platforms on a global scale. Over 30 million households as its launch point, expert projections take this unified movement to the level of mega network status in short order.

Executives within the respective companies, Jameelah “Just Jay” Wilkerson and Atonn F. Muhammad indicate the partnership is the new source for all things Hip-Hop. The Real Hip-Hop Network President/CEO says, “We are combining digital media, entertainment, and television with the four original pillars of Hip-Hop. These “pillars,” represent the different segments of the culture: rap music (oral), turntablism or DJing (aural), b-boying (physical) and graffiti art (visual).” The crucial and more recent pillar, Knowledge, Culture, and Overstanding, will also be represented with programming designed to inform and educate. The all-important 5th element is the saving grace of generations to come and a call home to those who have lost their way.
