Let's help friends Bring Healing Hip Hop to Incarcerated Youth

Webmaster

Our friends at Urban Art Beat have a mission. Read the article below from the UAB Donation page (written by Rosaleen) and see how you can help.

Urban Art Beat has been invited to start a program with incarcerated LGBTQ youth at Rikers Island. 

 It is called Beyond Beats and Bars

mission statement:

a process dedicated to the personal development of our youth

within the criminal injustice system.

through critical revolutionary hip hop pedagogy

we tap into expression, experimentation and example.

creativity is our key to dialogue

as we unlock the possibilities of poetic progress.

Most important question right now is how we will get there with the a highly trained team of teaching artists and mentors.

Why raise funds? Like, what SPECIFICALLY will your donations be going towards? I'm glad you asked! 

We're here to serve the youth and that costs money! We live and love Hip Hop and serve through our Critical Revolutionary Hip Hop Pedagogy, so we are reaching out to our village, as it takes a village, to raise a village!

Rikers Island is one of the most notorious jails in a country too full of jails.  They are giving us an opportunity to serve. As fervent opponents of the School to Prison Pipeline, we want to get in there and empower! We want youth in the system to know its not the end for them and that there are opportunities and power to be found in their own voices! 

But we need your help. Riker's certainly isn't paying for it. We need to cover costs associated with preparing for and executing  Beyond Beats and Bars

a new black arts movement will ground us as we prepare, spiritually, communally and pedagogically. 

We are reaching out to you to help us prepare as well. You are our village, the system is sick and the youth are the ones that suffer. We know that our style of Hip Hop workshops heal. Help us bring that healing to Rikers Island!!

MoSoul 5th Annual at PS 18 Recap

Webmaster

Yesterday we had the opportunity to be part of 'Mo Soul 5th Annual' at PS 18. This is the 5th year in a row Mo Soul has put together this event for the community. They donated 100's of backpacks and school supplies to kids in the community. Not to mention beautiful plates of food for everyone in the community for free. We forgot to take a photo of our plate because we were hypnotized by the flavor. 

Shout out to Mo, DJ Val P, Unicorn Empress, Kofi Black, Geralynn and more

Check out photos from the event and be sure to check out MoSoulfood for your next event 

Making An Impact with Music

Webmaster

What Up Stereotype Fam,

Last week #HipHopEdCon was one for the books. We will be sharing photos from the event in the upcoming week. We are grateful for our crew. It was such a success we decided to make it a quarterly event series. Thanks again to Hip Hop Retreat Week.

The following day we had the opportunity to visit 'Staten Island Invasion Radio' and talk about the event and many other non stereotypical topics.

 

 

Watch our Stereotype Co's Creative Director Dave Noodlez speak on the birth of Stereotype, breaking stereotype's and announcing a special event happening this November.

Impact with Music

Stereotype Co donates 5% of every order to Projectivity Group. Projectivity is an non-profit organization located in Staten Island, NY. They provide educational opportunities and resources to the youth in the community. They are also responsible for finding a lot opportunities for artists to create and showcase their work with the world. They donate dozens of hours of studio time to kids in community every month. The money we donate helps them buy new equipment for kids to make music and for the kids time to record their songs.

Last month we were able to donate this beautiful keyboard to their studio. Every purchase counts and helps.
