Jahi’s 3 year initiative to visit and collaborate with 20 science museums and institutions around the world presenting the turntable as an instrument of Hip Hop culture full of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. 

We explore the science and inventors of Hip Hop culture and science through live demonstrations, science experts, Hip Hop pioneers and innovators, and a visual audio experience. 

On June 18th, 2021, Jahi kicked off his STEM and Hip Hop initiative with Berkeley Lab, co-curating their first "Live Science" event, "Scratching The Surface- A Hip Hop STEM Story" featuring the turntable as an instrument of Hip Hop culture full of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Along with the Berkeley Lab team Dr. Faith Dukes Director of K-12 Programs, Alisa Bettale, Curriculum and Instruction, Miles Green, Audio Tech Specialist and DJ, and Dr. Carl Haber, Physicist and MacArthur Fellow, Scratching The Surface- A Hip Hop Story, explored the connection between invention, sound, vinyl, with live DJ demonstrations and scientific explanations.
