The Hip Hop Genera..
This is a great read for anyone who is interested in the hip-hop culture. It is particuclarly good for parents to read, who are interested in finding out what today's young people are thinking and where their head is at, so to speak.

Also a great Hip-Hop Youth Site is Russell Simmons Hip-Hop Summit. Founded in 2001, the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) is dedicated to harnessing the cultural relevance of Hip-Hop music to serve as a catalyst for education advocacy and other societal concerns fundamental to the well-being of at-risk youth throughout the United States.
A Better Today Brings a Brighter Tommorrow (an msoy original project) is working to create a listing of Hip Hop Helpers and Super Celebs, to showcase the postive impact the Hip-Hop can have on youth and within the community.
