Created by Marcus Gray in 1998, The Physics of Hip Hop began as a manifesto based on the idea that Hip Hop culture is comparable to any religion. He argued that HipHop can be used as a means for personal evolution and self initiation into adulthood.
The Physics of HipHop is a movement populated by cultural engineers and artists. We are interested in cultivating the evolution of Hiphop culture into true maturity. It is a platform for ideas, products and perspectives that uplift the core of what HipHop Culture can be. Extracting HipHops encrypted wisdom and creating art, dialog and products that bring value to the community.
Q: What does that have to do with diaper bags?
A:We recognize that in order for hiphop to evolve as a culture its participants must evolve as individuals. Thus, central to the evolution of the culture is the evolution of the family unit and the way it supports the children. More important is the evolution of their belief systems, perspective on their personal value and the potential of the culture.
HipHop culture, is associated with impoverished communities where the men are often victims of violence and or incarceration. There is a long standing stigma that fatherhood in the HipHop community is rare. While acknowledging this truth we are compelled to shine a light on fathers that are involved in raising their families.
In the spirit of the Physics of HipHop, we are inspired to celebrate fathers in the HipHop community with this diaper bag. Coming soon will be other products to support parenthood and the little ones that mean so much to us.
Look Out for more contributions to the culture.
WHAT IS A HIPHOP DIAPER BAG?
40+ years after its inception, Hip Hop Culture is still raising children on its art and wisdom. As a result HipHop has always been the voice of the rebel, the disenfranchised, the creative alchemist.
This diaper bag is a symbol of HipHops commitment to its youth and the overall maturing of the culture. Therefore we are passionate about changing the narrative that single mothers are raising the hiphop nation alone. That is to say, there are fathers standing proud on their path to parenthood.
This bag is dedicated to you! Our nation of creators and nurturers now have a stylish diaper bag that reflects their personal aesthetic. The Physics of Hip Hop is very proud to present this functional work of art designed for parents with the evolution of Hip Hop Culture, its creative consciousness and looking super cool while changing diapers in mind.
This dad bag is a spiritual idea. It’s a seed planted in the culture. It’s about more than a moment in time as a father when babies are in diapers.
My vision is that these babies will be proud to carry this bag beyond grade school. So even if your kids are out of diapers, or you don’t have kids at all, know that this durable backpack is a symbolic source of pride for the hiphop community.
Every bag sold we will give us the pleasure of donating a percentage of the profits to My Friends House, our favorite organization helping the homeless in Los Angeles.
