Here We Are
Sole had the pleasure of hosting a Soleciety dinner at Catch Dubai attended by Lisa Leone and The Beatnuts while they were in town for the Hip Hop History Showcase – An exhibition running out of Dubai Design District with a selection of never-seen-before archive photography.
An evening inspired by moments dating back to the early 90’s shared by both, hip hop pioneers The Beatnuts and New York B-girl turned photographer, Lisa who was privy to the rise of hip hop’s biggest names in the 90s as she watched the wave of hip hop swell from the streets of LA and NYC and crash onto the world stage. From Nas’ now-legendary Illmatic recording sessions, Snoop Dogg’s “What’s My Name?”, Biggie’s “Big Poppa” and TLC’s “Creep.”
Thanks to our Sole Dubai family for being a part of it and to our good friend & photographer Farel Bisotto for capturing the shots above.
