  • Art makes the difference for the few kids who make it, and it also makes the difference for the films that stand out from the pack. The Hip Hop Project, a documentary by Matt Ruskin, is one of them. show more

  • The Hip Hop Project, a documentary about Kazi and the young men and women he mentors, isn't quite as successful as Kazi himself - a Bahamian orphan and teenage street hustler who turned his life around, and got folks like Queen Latifah, Russell Simmons and Bruce Willis to help out him and his project. show more

  • Although it often feels more like a promotional tool than an objective documentary, there is no denying the emotional resonance propelling Matt Ruskin's first feature. show more

    Ihave nothing but respect for all these folks who took the journey of these young people going through their hard times and seeing their transformation as far as the film takes them. I hope that many other youths are touched by this "Project" and are inspired to take moves in a postitive Dircetion. Members that they did not go in depth about such as Live Wire owning his own record label "The Formula Inc." because he came out of The Hip Ho Project. They say teh youth of today are lost and Hip Hop is dead, this film begs to differ!
