Atlanta’s trailblazing hip-hop duo, EarthGang, embarked on a creative journey, taking their RIP Human Art Exhibit to The Standard, High Line Hotel in NYC in collaboration with AFROPUNK. The invite-only event marked the launch of EarthGang’s much-anticipated EP, “EarthGang vs the Algorithm: RIP Human Art,” set for release this fall.
The High Line Room was transformed into an immersive haven of artistic expression, featuring classical art reimagined by visionary emerging multidisciplinary artists. Attendees included figures from the art and music industries, including Malik Roberts, Caroline Wanga, Sickamore, and more.
Beyond the captivating art exhibit, the event featured panel discussions, artist interactions, and an exclusive preview of EarthGang’s upcoming EP. A fireside conversation moderated by Malaika Jabali of ESSENCE delved into the duo’s creative process, their new project, and the fusion of art, music, and technology that defines their work.
EarthGang’s appearance at AFROPUNK follows their groundbreaking 2019 festival performance. Their upcoming EP, “EarthGang vs the Algorithm: RIP Human Art,” challenges algorithm dominance and celebrates human creativity’s enduring spirit. The duo recently offered a taste of the EP with the single and music video “Bobby Boucher” Feat. Benji., inspired by the cult-classic film “The Waterboy,” gaining acclaim, even from the film’s star, Adam Sandler.
