PROJECT 008
VIDEO RECAP

     With so many new shops and galleries opening up in the South Bronx, Little by little, the culture is restoring itself where it all began. Recently, very well known in the music industry for his forward thinking and creative mind, Set Free opened up what is soon to be known as one of the coolest and most cultured hubs in the historical borough of The Bronx, "The Compound". 

     Being the home of Hip-Hop it only seems right. Set Free connected with the Legendary Photographer Jonathan Mannion to showcase his vast catalog of shots taken from old to new featuring huge names like Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg, The LOX, Aaliyah and so many more. 

     Since this event was right in our backyard, we took the opportunity to take that pop-up gallery's opening night and bring it to the people like no other. With special guests like Yasiin Bey a.k.a. Mos Def and Chris Rivers (The Legend Big Pun's son), this event was definitely one for the books.
