Rap Rehab

Young adults! Lyrical artists! And those who can drop a beat! Get out your best lines. A clean song writing contest with studio scholarship is offered for the ultimate Lakeland collabo!

You can be a contestant in our Sound of Our Town Music Competition! There will be a song writing lesson and chorography taught by the KKC dance group. If you win, you will receive a scholarship to the Mid Town Studio!

This project launch is part of a Rap Rehab workshop at the summit.  You don’t want to miss this opportunity to write, recite and perform at the rally commencing at 6 PM.  If you are not a writer, perhaps you can use your creative skills to choreograph your dance moves.  KKC, a local dance group will help with the choreography to your new song. 

Expect anything and everything.  You won’t want to miss this turned-up finale of this Summer’s REFUSE TO LOSE SUMMIT!
