History of the Hip Hop Hands Foundation
Hip Hop Hands’ founder Destin Soul’s intimate relationship with Rap Music’s Veterans exposed a horrible truth. Those who provided the musical antidote for our emotional and psychological challenges were in personal, financial and historical crisis. Soul quickly realized record companies, artist management and fans had failed! It was in 2008 when he had an epiphany, wanting to establish an organization to combat the multitude of issues plaguing the Rap community.
Much of what happens in life is met with resistance; there was no shortage of cynics. When pitching the idea, Soul found the superstructure of the music industry and the media weren’t interested. The neophytes enjoying success were disgustingly dismissive. Traumatized Veterans even shouted, “Nothin’ is free,” and found it impossible to trust or believe.
Soul’s optimism and dedication was instantly tested. By building and personally funding preservation efforts, and serving as a part-time financial lifeline, Soul was determined to set the progressive example. He was devoted to being the pebble causing the ripple to something paramount. It took seven years, but now with the help of a solid team, the Hip Hop Hands Foundation is finally alive and ready to PRESERVE, PROVIDE and PARTNER! Are you down?!
