April has been an awesome month. We have had the chance and opportunity to meet some amazing people who want to make a change in the world and who are just positive, good hearted people. This month we have had the pleasure of showcasing the talent and message of three impressive artists: Andrew J. Katz, and The Rapper LJ Even though they express themselves in different ways, they all have made an impact on our world and we will continue to support them in all of their endeavors
In case you missed it here is a quick review for the artist showcased in the month of April:
Andrew Katz – Talented artist, graphic designer, volunteer, teacher and member of mADurgency artist collective. Andy first caught our eye with his amazing representation of Hip Hop Legends with his craft. He has captured perfectly the realness and likeness of stars such as Chuck D, Adam Yauch, EPMD, Big Daddy Kane, Ice T, Redman, Method Man, LL Cool J and many, many more. What impressed us most about Andy was his positive attitude and the want to make the world a better place, starting with our children. He is also an active member of MCA Day, which is a tribute to Adam Yauch the person, artist and activist.
The Rapper LJ – Talented rapper, producer, inspirational speaker and owner and CEO of his own record label Music Forever Entertainment. The first song we heard from LJ was “The Realist” and it was definitely worth the find. Not only is he a business man and talented rapper, he also wants to inspire the children and hopes that his music can help make the world a better place. He is a conscious rapper, that thinks about who is listening and what he is saying in every song that he puts out to the public. He has toured all across California to perform and speak to our youth. He hopes to make them better than him and those before him and to put a stop to the teaching of racism and hatred.

So what of the rest of this month? For the rest of the month of April we will continue to showcase the April artists. We are also honored to do a feature story on Linda Masarira. A powerful, fearless woman who is determined to make a better Zimbabwe for all. Stay tuned to learn more about this phenomenal woman who will impress you with her passion and her story.
We have stumbled across a singer that has completely blown us away. All we know is two things. Her name is Arlissa and she IS the next big voice. We hope to share her work and know that anyone that listens to her will be moved. She just can’t sing, this woman can “sang”. Which means, she is not your average next door singer. She has star power and we look forward to seeing and hearing more from and about her.
Thank you for your support. Hip Hop Humanism is doing many things and we hope that all that we are doing on the scene and behind the scenes are successful, so we can do our part and continue to do our part in making the world a better place.
