Music has always had strong beginnings and roots in our country. It's become such an essential part of life woven into our nation's culture and history. Which is why the humongous Quirino Grandstand in Rizal Park—the site for many of our nation's historic occasions—has been tapped as the venue for the first ever MTV Music Evolution set in the 17th of May. The live music event in partnership with the Department of Tourism seeks to bring to life the evolution of a music genre and enables the audience to discover how certain music styles have developed and transformed over the years. This time, hip-hop is taking the spotlight for the event's inauguration.

So, why kick it off with hip-hop you ask? It's quite simple. The genre has just been so present and celebrated in a way—it's so current and fresh—on our very own shores that it just feels like the timing is right. Hip-hop has actually been sort of a creative way to voice out societal concerns in the Philippines. This, in itself, makes it pretty crazy to not do a hip-hop themed concert. It's just one of those things that are both pretty unique in our culture and universally renowned as a genre as well.
