Partnership with City of Baltimore and Sugar Hill Gang

Hip Hop is Green partnered with the Housing Authority of Baltimore “Everybody is at Risk” COVID-19 prevention and awareness campaign by negotiating participation from the legendary hip hop group the Sugarhill Gang to help spread the word about wearing facial coverings to stop the spread of the virus.

The Sugarhill Gang, the trailblazing artists with the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Rapper’s Delight”, learned of HABC’s comprehensive efforts to inform and advise residents on best practices to stop the spread of COVID-19 and offered to support the “Everybody is at Risk” campaign. The group combined another one of their legendary hits, “Apache – Jump On it” to create a video and inform residents about the importance of wearing facial coverings.
