From Executive Producers Bruce Willis and Queen Latifah, The Hip Hop Project is the compelling story of Kazi, a formerly homeless teenager who inspired a group of New York City teens to transform their life stories into powerful works of art, using hip hop as a vehicle for self-development and personal discovery.
Kazi challenges young people to write music about real issues affecting their lives as they strive to produce a powerful and thought-provoking CD filled with moving personal narratives and sharp social commentary.
Featured in the film are Hip Hop Project supporters music mogul Russell Simmons, actor Bruce Willis, hip hop pioneer Doug E. Fresh and music journalist Sway.
In contrast to all of the negative attention focused on hip hop and rap music, this is a story of hope, healing and the realization of dreams.Inspired by Kazi's work, 100% of the net profits are being donated to organizations working with youth.
