Music by 5-10 year olds in East Harlem (Amber Charter Grade School at East 106th St). Each group of four children name their own band, and the name of the whole project together is Da Hiphop Raskalz.
We've been teaching them to play and write hip-hop and they do it extremely well. The kids not only write the lyrics and sing and rap, but play all the instruments and program the drums! They also created the front cover!

"The fall's hottest, bangin' rap release" (Montreal Mirror, read full review)
"Most mainstream hip-hop artists rap about money, sex and other adult preoccupations. However, the MCs of Da HipHop Raskalz are spitting rhymes of a different sort, about dinosaurs, fractions -- and, most of all, candy."
