The Hip Hop Project

Synopsis: The Hip Hop Project is the dynamic and inspirational story of a group of New York City teenagers who transform their life stories into powerful works of art, using hip hop as a vehicle for self-development and personal discovery. The film traces the evolution of this award-winning outreach program developed by Kazi, a formerly homeless teenager turned youth mentor. After four years of collaboration, the group produced a powerful and thought-provoking album that provides a revealing look at their lives. In contrast to all the negative attention focused on hip hop and rap music, this is a story of hope, healing and the realization of dreams.

whatever opportunity there is.

As long as I can do what I love

and survive

and as long

as it's around hip-hop-

I love hip-hop,

you know what I'm saying?

Because this is just-

it's like an outlet

like no other.

I used to just write rhymes

in class or whatever.

I wouldn't do no work.

I wouldn't do nothing

but write rhymes.

I fucked up in ninth grade,

and I had to really redefine

who I was

and find another path.

My father got incarcerated

probably, like, three weeks ago.

He got arrested for drugs

or whatever, selling drugs.

And, you know,

they raided the house,

and how I felt then,

it was like

they were doing something wrong,

not my father,

you know what I'm saying?

He really put his education

aside when he was younger.

That left my father illiterate

to the point where he barely

can write his name.

I won't settle.

I won't settle for

what my mother settled for.

I won't settle for

what my father settled for.

- 34th Street, Penn Station.

- It's like the price

of my range

Only nigga balls

entertaining on the A train

Feel it

It's NY to Calico

We don't give a f*ck

Brave niggas

let the Cali blow

You see your head

on your front porch

On your fuckin' patio

What the f*ck you wanted

for the ravio

Nigga named Cann

From NY, man

BK Brookdale Hospital

where I was born

But I felt the earth shake

- CaNNoN was always

a wordsmith.

He would rap,

but some words,

I wouldn't know

what the hell he said.

It's like he'd just

find a dictionary

and use the biggest words he

could find to rhyme or whatever.

But I could tell

he had crazy skill, you know,

just how he always hitting

the beat.

He had mad rhymes,

just mad rhymes.

- Lookin' for war

The nigga that seek

you shall find

You ain't hurt,
