About Classically Dope

Classically Dope is a hip-hop/rap and classical music collaboration between Konshens theMC and musicians from the UMD School of Music. Using music as an instrument of positive social influence, the ensemble tackles subjects such as the power of belief, racial inequality, stereotypes, police brutality, and being a change agent in the world.

Combining two genres that are typically seen as polar opposites, this fusion brings diverse communities together by showing that a common love for music transcends geography, race, age, values, and socioeconomic status. The focus is on what makes us alike and how we can always find commonality, empathy, and relatability with every person in our day-to-day lives.

Most recently the Classically Dope collaboration opened for Yo-Yo Ma and Esperanza Spalding at an outreach concert at Anacostia High School and performed at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on the Voices of Change spoken word showcase. In February 2019, Classically Dope was featured on Washington Performing Arts' Music Distilled concert series, an event co-sponsored by the Mars Urban Arts Initiative and Republic Restoratives. The group has also been featured by the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment, Emancipation Day at Freedom Plaza, Circa Media, One Love Massive, and NextNOW Fest.
