PROJECT BLOWED

After only the second Peace Ride, Ben Caldwell from Kaos Network and Badru Umi from Project Blowed approached the Peace Rides about a collaboration with Leimert Park. Born from this meeting were the Peace Concerts, which have become an integral element in the monthly Peace Rides ever since. 

With roots extending back to the early-1990s when the Good Life Café in Leimert Park served as one of the most important platforms for hip hop artists from Los Angeles to express themselves (profanity-free), for nearly two decades Project Blowed has served to incubate some of the most creative underground talent the West Coast rap scene has ever produced. Project Blowed is a hip-hop crew, it is a record label, it is an open mic workshop and it also one of the earliest and most contributive groups in the United in Peace movement.
