***#iGrindExclusive*** #PennyUp (@CentsOfChange) And Chicago Excel Academy Puts Together IMPACTFUL Visual #SpittinCents

Dope things happen when you gather positive emcees/poets to do something powerful for Black History Month and beyond! 

Colby Chapman of #PennyUP
That's exactly what happened after executive director of#PennyUp Colby Chapman managed to orchestrate a black history visual titled "$pittin' Cent$". In the visual the emcees/poets were given 16-32 bars to touch on topics such as Police Brutality, Black Power, Racial Injustice, and Education. Each DJ selected an instrumental selection befitting the topic. The project included hand selected respected names from the Chicagoland area as well as students of Chicago Excel Academy! 
#PennyUP presents #SpittinCents: Through this project they revitalized, re-engaged, and reinforced Black history through rhymes, beats, photography, and videography.
