East of East is an ongoing archival project that attempts to maintain a record of hip hop culture in Atlantic Canada. To date, there are more than 1600 digitized albums, hundreds of flyers and posters, and lists containing information about close to 500 hip hop artists in the region.
Plans to develop the contents of the archive into a publicly-searchable database are underway. For now, elements of the archive can be viewed on Instagram @east_of_east_hip_hop.
