Harlem Renaissance High School “Better Way”

  • 0

R.H.Y.M.E. (Rhymes Helping Young Minds Excel) 12-Week music songwriting and mentoring program in collaboration with Harlem Renaissance High School.

The students of Harlem Renaissance, along with lead teaching artist CONQUEST: Jason Andre Roberts wrote, produced and recorded “BETTER WAY”, an impassioned, intense and thought provoking hip-hop anthem. One that’s speaks on racial inequality, police brutality, social issues and most of all, the hope and ambition of our youth to build better communities and be beacons of justice. In addition, they shot a captivating performance driven video, with imagery that supported the lyrical content, which also in turn, inspired the eventual cover art.
