LIFE THE GRIOT
AWAKENING PURPOSE AND POTENTIAL

Building with Words – Hip Hop Awards 2015

Project Description

“In the 6th century BCE, an Assyrian sage named Ahiqar coined a phrase that is important today as it was the moment he spoke it. He said, ‘The word is mightier than the sword.’ Today the pens of the youth are used as daggers to destroy entire generations.” Life challenges hip hop artists in the region to become more responsible with their pens and use their music to influence positive thinking and behavior.
