Young Roots, Deep Rhymes: a film about Priest

posted in: Blog | 0

We’re excited for you to see our new film highlighting the story of Priest, a 14 year old Rapper and Hip Hop artist from North Minneapolis. Priest recorded his first song at the age of 9, released a five song EP when he was 10, and released his first full album at the age of 12. His music has been highlighted by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and he has performed 100 times nationwide. Priest is an inspiration to many young artists and youth, but especially “Black Boys,” (the title of one of his songs). As a young African American artist, Priest is a role model who is calling youth to have pride in who they are and where they came from. His message is, “you are never too young to make a difference!”
