About Tools of War grassroots Hip Hop
Co-founded by Jorge "Fabel" Pabon and Christie Z-Pabon,Tools of War was named with the idea that there are many "tools" one can use in competing or battling within Hip Hop culture: paint, turntables, microphones, one's body, and especially one's voice. Although the name may appear aggressive, the intent behind it's use is actually to inform and educate people regarding not only Hip Hop but many other social and political issues. As we grow, we are finding that it has also become a forum for voicing opinions and sharing ideas which might help in unifying and uplifting people all over the world. Contact us at toolsofwar@ gmail.com

We are busier than ever with park jams and dj battles and don't have much time to browse the sites and facebook looking for great events to list. In fact there is a lot of great events that did not get listed because I need to go outside and have fun too!
