What two train lines famously stop at Brooklyn’s Marcy Avenue station? Which side of his face does Slick Rick wear an eyepatch over? What’s the name of Salt-N-Pepa’s DJ? According to Pete Rock, what do the letters T.R.O.Y. stand for? Who took the Wock to Poland? If you know the answers to these questions, you owe it to yourself to show and prove at the Atrium’s Hip-Hop Trivia Battle. Hosted by Lincoln Center’s Hip-Hop guest curator, the Head of Spotify's Cultural Partnerships division and the voice of Spotify's AI DJ, Xavier “X” Jernigan, this celebration of the culture will test the depths of even the most serious fan’s memory of famous MCs, immortal turntablists, internationally respected crews, and the art of the game. If bragging rights aren’t enough for you, we’ll be giving out prizes to the night’s top scholars. Bring your own squad or roll up solo and we’ll add you to a team for a trivia night face-off where, to paraphrase Kool Moe Dee, Knowledge is truly King.
