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

Great movie, inspirational
27 August 2008 | by MacysSee all my reviews

This is wonderful movie on many levels. It really is great piece of film making. It tells a great story, has drama and wonderful visuals. This is what good movie making should be. It the specific story of people overcoming great obstacles, a universal story which is as inspirational as when various versions were told in ancient Greece, and as relevant to our lives today as today's headline. It tells the real story of people who overcome great obstacles and some who just cope. You actually watch people grow, mature and develop wisdom as you watch this film, a very rare experience. This is a great story. I saw in London with an audience of young British students and they loved it. I It is an American story with a universal message. If you haven't seen it, make sure you do.
