Roxanne Shante, Kool Herc & More Bowl to Fight Cancer


A group of ’80s rap legends have joined forces to fight breast cancer by bowling.

The event, dubbed Hip-Hop Pin Drop, is scheduled to take place in January at New York City’s Frames Bowling Lounge, and was organized by U.T.F.O.’s Kangol Kid, Roxanne Shante and film executive Shaunda Lumpkin, who lost her mother after a 3-year bout with the disease.

Hip-hop’s forefather Kool Herc, Dana Dane, the Sugar Hill Gang, DoItAll of Lords of the Underground, Doc Ice of UTFO and Jam Master Jay‘s son Jason Mizell Jr., are among the artists included in the Hip-Hop Pin Drop, part of the Mama Luke Organization’s attempt to spread breast cancer awareness “one pin at a time.”

The first Hip-Hop Pin Drop goes down on Jan. 6, 2011. Get involved.
