This summer we worked with one of our favorite New York City organizations: The City Parks Foundation and their annual live events platform SummerStage. In a series of videos, we spoke to different SummerStage 2016 artists about hip hop, access to the arts, outdoor performance and summertime in NYC.  We love the end result and think you will too!
