Hailed as Rhode Island’s “Mecca of Hip Hop” by nearly every crew, group, and participant in RI’s Hip Hop community, United Skates of America was home to some legendary battles, performances, and encounters in the 1980s. It acted as a space for kids from all over Rhode Island who were under the age of 21 to come together and experience hip hop community first hand.
We are still looking for more photos and footage from USA during this time. If you have something or know of someone who would, we would love to hear from you!
USA is still up and running! You can visit their website here.
