Henry from Project Spitfire contacted me about 6 months ago and told me about his cause and I was immediately with it. Project Spitfire is a youth violence prevention organization in Chicago, that gives at-risk youth the opportunity to write and record music. I’ll let Henry tell it in more detail:
‘Gentrifications’ is the first music video from Project Spitfire, a youth violence prevention organization here in Chicago that uses music to reach high-risk youth. ‘Gentrifications’ is by our artist Young DBoy Low, a 21 year old from the Low End on Chicago’s South Side. Along with DBoy our upcoming album will feature 10-15 tracks by young un-heard artists from the city’s most violent neighborhoods. Project Spitfire helps them tell their stories through music and spread awareness for this critical issue while also teaching them the ropes of the music industry.
