The Hip Hop Project airs on the Sundance Channel!


Broadcast Premiere

This Monday watch the award-winnning documentary The Hip Hop Project,
at 9pm (est), on The Sundance Channel.

Documentarian Matt Ruskin tells the “irresistibly uplifting” Variety story of Chris “Kazi” Rolle and his Brooklyn-based organization that encourages disadvantaged kids to express themselves in verse rather than violence. A formerly homeless teenager abandoned by his mother in the Bahamas, Rolle now acts as a charismatic catalyst on urban teens with a mission to “heal through hip-hop.” In one of the film’s most powerful moments, Rolle returns to the Bahamas, where he attempts to meet with his birth mother. “Vibrant and soulful”
