We need talented Philly Hip-Hop and R&B artists ages 15 – 25 for our soundtrack and showcase.

The Philadelphia Hip-Hop Legacy Project is based on the past, present and future of Hip Hop in Philadelphia. Designed to show our audience the ethnicity, culture, development and popularity of hip hop; The Philadelphia Hip-Hop Legacy Project will span across three major decades displaying all of the major contributions made from the City of Brotherly Love.

Philadelphia is known for good music. Musicians, DJs, Singers, Rappers, and Executives abound in the city. The Philadelphia Hip-Hop Legacy Project aims to ensure young aspiring artists and executives know the rich tradition and musical history of Philadelphia and it’s global influence on Hip-Hop as they create their own pathways to success.

Students (the emcee/journalist, the dancer, and the filmmaker) from Philadelphia were selected to document their experience traveling to Los Angeles, CA to attend the GRAMMY Foundation’s 13th Annual Music Preservation Project “Word Revolution, a Celebration of the Evolution of Hip Hop,” with Musical Director… none other than Philadelphia’s own Adam Blackstone. To view a preview of the LA Trip view below

• Short Film (20 minutes) by students to highlight the progression and future of Philly Hip-Hop
• Compilation CD created by students that audition and participate in Philly Hip-Hop Bootcamp
• Event to showcase the talented students selected for the compilation and to view the film

Do you love Hip-Hop? Are you a youth between the ages of 15 and 25? Do you work with youth? Do you have a background in media literacy or youth engagement? Do you have an extensive knowledge of Philadelphia’s music history? We are looking for students, artists, historians, and others to contribute to the project.

Auditions will be held in March for students interested in contributing their music to the compilation.

Throughout the year youth from various organizations across the city of Philadelphia will be invited to use
media to help us document the legacy of Philadelphia Hip-Hop; contributions of Philadelphia musicians, DJs, recording artist, and executives; and their influence on Hip-Hop globally.
