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!
THIS IS A HOT MOVIE... DON'T SLEEP ON IT.
