The Universal Zulu Nation is synonymous with the founding family of Hip Hop. It is a grassroots community-based organization that was begun by a young student named Afrika Bambaataa in the Bronx borough of New York City in 1973. Acknowledged internationally as the Godfather of Hip Hop culture, it was his vision to empower communities by uniting the artistic elements of Hip Hop, and the UZN has since grown into a vast, international network of Hip Hop artists, organizers, and activists, dedicated to preserving and promoting the culture.

206 Zulu, Seattle's chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation, was founded in 2004 by King Khazm, and has since received wide recognition for the precedence it has set in community building, education, outreach, activism, and artistic excellence. Since its inception, 206 Zulu has taken the UZN motto of "Knowledge, Wisdom, and Understanding" to another level for the next generation.
