Hip Hop Gives began in fall of 2015 when a group of creatives were inspired to make an impact in the communities that contributed to their personal and artistic development.
Many of the founders grow up as inner city youth and they recognize the sheer abundance of skilled and gifted people that call the inner cities home.
Today, Hip Hop Gives builds on the foundation established by the group of creatives. In the spirit of mutual aid and community building, the team, is dedicated to deepening the impact that this benefit show has on lives of inner city youth across the city, and soon other cities and states.
