George Clinton, DJ Pete Rock, and CL Smooth Come To Town:

Funk music pioneer George Clinton will join an all-star roster of talent scheduled to speak or perform at the third annual One Nation Hip-Hop Summit on Saturday, Nov. 6, at the Barnum Hall Theatre on the campus of Santa Monica High School. Venerable 90s New York rap duo Pete Rock and CL Smooth will make a special appearance during the showcase portion of the event, with Onyx, X-Clan and up-and-coming artists scheduled to perform.

A student-produced theatrical production and a discussion panel will take place before the showcase. Panelists include Chang Weisberg, founder of Guerilla Union, the promoter behind Rock the Bells festivals; Quincy “QD3” Jones III, music and film producer; Jody Armour, professor of law at the University Southern California; Jeff Weiss, a music critic for Los Angeles Times and the LA Weekly; Terrace Martin, multi-platinum producer; and James Leach, publishing firm SESAC’s associate vice president of writer/publisher relations and new technologies. Tupac Shakur’s mentor and first manager Leila Steinberg will moderate the panel.

The Summit was conceived and organized by a committee within the Santa Monica-based nonprofit Pico Youth and Family Center in association with Steinberg’s Alternative Intervention Models (AIM), KRS-One’s Temple of Hip-Hop and Guerilla Union. The theme behind One Nation this year, “Building Bridges: Locally and Globally” was devised to resonate with the youth. Through interaction with notable hip-hop figures, the organizers hope to encourage organic community leadership, collaboration and entrepreneurship among the attendees.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at OneNationHipHop.org, at the Pico Youth and Family Center, 715 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405, or at the door. Reduced group rates are available.
