Hip Co is a popular and rapidly growing form of Liberian Hip Hop music. The Lab is supporting a popular music artist named ‘Amaze’ to lead the Hip Co Accountability Network, a group of fellow Liberian artists who are developing messages of positive social change and integrity through their music. With the Lab’s support they are engaging young people in positive ways around their music and building a network to push for reforms on critical accountability issues within the industry such as copyright.
“We reach thousands of Liberia’s youth through our music. The Hip Co Accountability Network is now traveling around Liberia with the Lab, making sure young people know how and why to vote in the elections- engaging them in ways they understand and enjoy. It’s music for change.” – Amaze
