In an effort to promote the importance of health information in the Black and Brown community and beyond as we close the year, Milwaukee organizations are coming together to host “Hip Hop and Health”—a live, virtual panel event moderated by Carrie “Noni Juice” Mahone with a live performance by renown DJ Jazzy Jeff of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.

The event will take place on Dec. 13 at 6:30 PM CST, and feature a two-part panel conversation, discussing vital questions about health information as it intersects with Hip Hop culture. The panel will explore how Hip Hop and its culture connect with positive health practices.

Local business owners, educators, community leaders, and health advocates will be featured panelists, including:

County Executive David Crowley along with other health providers will address the panel and audience with educational information during the event.

An event about Hip Hop will never just have a simple question-and-answer format. “Hip Hop and Health” will also include live music, thanks to live DJs—DJ Jazzy Jeff and Milwaukee’s own DJ Bizzon & DJ Snack Daddy—art features, and “Health Trivia” prize money will be awarded by answering questions based on health empowerment information provided in the registration process. Also, locally owned minority businesses still serving customers during the COVID-19 pandemic will be promoted during the event in partnership and collaboration with MKE Black App.

During the event, campaigns of local art collaborations that took place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the “Mask On It” song and challenge, will be highlighted. This song was commissioned by the Creative Health Collective and Robert “Biko” Baker, PhD. The song was produced by Ray Nitti, Bizness Boi and RellBeatz and features over 8 Milwaukee based Hip Hop artists.

The event is Free, Family-Friendly, and will not be your traditional “talking at you” virtual experience.

Please visit for details and to register for the event before December 12th.
