"P.A.T.H." (which stands for Preserving, Archiving and Teaching Hip-Hop History) is the new film by award-winning filmmaker Dan Perez. It documents the P.A.T.H. Hip-Hop Academy, the first ever summer camp of it's kind in Miami.
P.A.T.H. is the brainchild of popular Miami hip-hop artist Brimstone127 who after eight years, finally found a home for his program at Miami Light Project. During the four week camp, teenagers from ages 12-18 studied Hip-Hop history, the art of DJing, MCing (rapping), B-boying and B-girling (break-dancing), and urban art (graffiti).
Several of Miami's most talented artists and performers served as instructors. The list included urban artist Krave, DJ Immortal from Scratch Academy, International B-Girl Beta Rawkz and Soulflower who has shared the mic with emcees such as Erykah Badu, KRS-ONE and Outkast. The camp also featured an impressive lineup of guest speakers. Hip-Hop pioneer Grandmaster Dee of Whodini, DJ Epps, popular Miami artist Lebo, Triple Seven, Faisal Tavernier of Urban America Newspaper, Mecca aka Grimo and International motivational speaker Kirk Nugent were just some of the names that took the time to stop in and address the students.
