Press: Hip Hop Chess Federation stepping things up

image
The Hip-Hop Chess Federation is currently putting together HHCF Street Games Vol. 2 Mixtape!! It is scheduled to drop in May, but we need your help to make it happen.
Street Games Vol. 1 dropped in Nov. 2014. Put together  by DJ Rob Flow and Hosted by A Plus of Hieroglyphics, it was the first ever mixtape to fuse the themes of music, chess and martial arts to promote unity, strategy and nonviolence . It featured songs like 64 Squares in the Cipher, A Technical Flow and Universal Language that celebrated physical fitness and mental clarity on the streets. Jiu Jitsu masters like Ryron Gracie and Gumby from OTM were paired with chess masters and rappers like Maurice Ashley, Jennifer Shahade, Rakaa of Dilated Peoples and Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA.

It was covered extensively by Allhiphop.com, the Open Mat Radio Podcast and a beautiful piece by the San Jose Mercury News among others.

Because of the high level of support from the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, traditional martial arts and MMA communities we will be having more rhymes related to BJJ//MMA and physical fitness.

HHCF is currently seeking $2,000.00 in donations to cover the costs of mixing and mastering, getting the cover art created etc. None of the performers on the mixtape are paid for their artistic donations. They all donate their time and energy to inspire the youth toward positive things like Hip-Hop, Chess and martial arts through the HHCF Street Games series.

Those who donate $200.00 or more will get their brand shouted out on the mixtape and have their logo put on the cover of the mixtape. The host of the tape is currently being held in a black box under the pentagon…..But lets just say, its going to be insane , beautiful and unprecedented!! But we can’t make it happen without you. The HHCF is a 501(c)3 and your donation will be tax deductible.
