Welcome To The Movement
A new solution for The Culture.
Mission Statement: Hip Hop For The People uses grassroots activism to educate people about socio-economic injustices and advocate solutions through Hip Hop Culture. We raise funds to support historically oppressed communities with programs that advance the principal tenets of Hip hop Culture; peace, love, unity, and having fun.
Hip Hop narratives that represent the community best have been marginalized and pushed to the periphery, leaving only the most problematic artist that resonates most with the 70% of college-age white males that consume rap music today. This has had a devastating impact on the ability of local artists to reach audiences and gain recognition, ultimately stifling the growth and diversity of the Hip Hop scene.
Hip Hop For The People Inc. is a Hip Hop Education org which was created to combat the marginalization of Hip Hop music in mainstream media. The organization aims to give these often underrepresented artists a voice and bring them to the forefront of a new community stage. A stage that is dedicated to tackling the most significant social justice issues Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities face today. Please join us.

Be the change . . .
Donating to budding Black arts organizations is vital for uplifting the community by addressing historical inequalities. Such support for Hip Hop Activism promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion, nurturing talents often overlooked due to systemic barriers. This financial backing enables these organizations to preserve and enhance Black cultural heritage, fostering a robust creative economy. Furthermore, it helps to challenge and reshape mainstream narratives, offering unique perspectives and stories from the Black community. Thus, these donations empower artists and contribute to a richer, more figurative arts landscape, ultimately inspiring unity and fostering societal change.
Grassroots Fundraising is our Foundation
Hip Hop for the People's grassroots fundraising program is a unique opportunity to educate affluent, primarily white communities about our struggle to reclaim our voice and the power of Hip Hop as a force for positive change. This also allows people with resources to put their money where their mouths are to create direct change and healing for our community. With your help, we can bring the positive side of Hip Hop to those in need, promoting unity, self-expression, and personal growth. Your donation will directly fund these events and programs promoting culture, creativity, and social change. Your investment in Hip Hop is an investment in the future and the power of the human spirit.
Hip Hop For The People Parties includes an open mic we call a cipher. This is part of our showcase where Hip Hop enthusiasts can showcase their freestyle skills in front of a live band playing instrumentals. It is open to all and provides a platform for people to express themselves through rap while being supported by live music. The event aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment for Hip Hop artists to grow and connect with others in the community. It provides an opportunity for people to share their talent, build their confidence, and connect with others who share a passion for Hip Hop.
