Pricing: One show generally costs $1000 and is significantly discounted if your school requires more than one show. We realize that budgets are tight and many schools do not have a lot of funding to bring in external programs so, please don’t hesitate to let us know if that rate does not work in your budget. Also, if you help us arrange a show at another school in your district, we will offer another significant discount. We try to schedule several visits in an area to keep the travel costs down and pass along the savings.

Mission Statement:

Rap music is arguably the most popular and influential music that our youth listen to today and when paired with a positive message, it can make a lasting impression that could impact them for the rest of their lives. Using humor, crowd engagement, and hip-hop, our aim is to help youth realize that anything is possible when you have the right perspective and the right attitude.

Philosophy/Belief Statement: Get On Your Grind! Be Defined! Use Your Mind!
