Storyline

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. Written by Anonymous

Wow .... Anti-Black Vote Stacking ???
26 January 2010 | by cerealpirateSee all my reviews

I have not seen this movie nor will I. I have given this rating due to the fact that Rap and Hip Hop has destroyed this country. To sit back and listen to all of the mindless lyrics and watch what the consumer turns into is more interesting than National Geographic.

I have reason to believe that Queen Latifa is trying to shine some good on this type of music but I hate to say it but Rap died with Will Smith and Queen Latifa. To stand up for this type of music means standing up for the drug dealers, rapist, murders, child molesters, and wife beaters! There is nothing good coming from that brain washing junk but the millions of mindless followers that go out and help pay for Master P's new yacht. I am done with music in general and until I move to the UK will have to settle with silence.

Bruce Willis lost a lot of my respect from this piece of crap called a movie!
