About Tools of War grhh

Co-founded by Jorge “Fabel” Pabon and Christie Z-Pabon, Tools of War was named with the idea that there are many “tools” one can use in competing or battling within Hip Hop culture: turntables, paint, microphones, one’s body, and especially one’s voice (and so on). Although the name may appear aggressive, the intent behind it’s use is actually to inform and educate people regarding not only Hip Hop but many other social and political issues. As we grow, we are finding that it has also become a forum for voicing opinions and sharing ideas which might help in unifying and uplifting people all over the world.

If You Build it, They Will Come…
Going into our 8th year of throwing True School Hip Hop Park Jams in the NYC Parks,
we are reminded of the classic movie “Field of Dreams”
where major legends and unsung heroes gather in the summer to do what they love best.
People hear about it from all over and rush to relive or experience a time in the NYC parks
where a culture that didn’t yet have a name took it’s first baby steps…
