About The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy

Thank you for your consideration.

I'm an award-winning, independent journalist dedicated to covering Hip-Hop music and culture. 

Through the years, I've created multiple media outlets, including  Birthplace MagazineThe NY Hip Hop Reportand a nonprofit organization called The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy, in order to advance the public understanding of hip-hop's valuable artistic and cultural contributions.

I am also the producer and host of News Beat, an award-winning podcast that fuses social justice journalism and Hip-Hop through interviews with premier experts, academics and activists about important topics, with a mix of music and original hip-hop lyrics on every episode.

My flagship baby is a podcast series titled, "Hip-Hop Can Save America," which explores the innovative, inspiring, and often surprising ways Hip-Hop music, culture, and sensibilities are improving the world in areas including education, science/technology, health/wellness and more.

I also put out a hand-curated email newsletter that highlights amazing work merging Hip-Hop innovation in those same areas.

No one is advocating for the ability of Hip-Hop music and culture to uplift humanity like me and my small team are. Please consider helping us continue to stay independent, free from having to join networks or relinquish any creative control over our work

Hip-Hop music and culture do not typically receive the kind of respectful media coverage that I have always pledged to provide. I have always felt this was an urgent mission, regardless of whether or not it is financially sustainable.

Your small but valuable contributions will allow me to keep telling the stories that matter, in the manner in which they deserve to be told.

Please help us continue to represent hip hop music and culture the way they deserve.

- Manny Faces
