We get to see it live.”

“We want to make it about the talent of the artist," adds Cooper. "We’re trying to get the dopest artists into it and make it about the art form.  When you make it about the art form, respect is coming back into Hip Hop and Hip Hop will be taken as a serious art form again.”
