Making Space for Young Artists to Change the Sound of the Bay Area

Making Space for Young Artists to Change the Sound of the Bay Area

Working with History Through Hip Hop, Spotify created an inspiring place for young artists in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood to express themselves through music.

Encouraged to voice their opinions on topics ranging from gentrification to inequality, artists recorded original songs and then performed live at SF's iconic Warfield Theatre.

History Through Hip Hop in action.

We also promoted an album by History Through Hip Hop. Released through Rock The Cause Records, all streams of the album raised money for future projects in the community.
