Still Achieve (2022): Music Video Premier
Nothing quite like summertime in the South Bronx! This summer we @nycthrive collaborated with our partners at @bronxconnect to facilitate our @r.h.y.m.e_nyc Hip Hop music and mentoring program with a great group of Bronx youth.
Over the course of a few weeks participants wrote, recorded and ultimately produced a song and music video “Still Achieve”
Watch and listen to Bronx youth articulate their desire and resolve to achieve greatness, persevere and overcome adversity in the face of criticism, misconceptions and pressure from the world around them.
The song is another reminder of the great intrinsic, invaluable worth and brilliance that youth possess.
We’re thrilled to be collaborating with the children of our city.
Stay tuned! @r.h.y.m.e_nyc coming soon to a school near you.
