Besides the A-list lineup, show producers created an event that will showcase multiple facets of Hip Hop. Some include live graffiti artists, Visual Symphony with an old school Hip Hop history film and visual effects show as well as a dance competition by Millennium Dance Complex (past dancers include Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson).
