ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album will be like no other, brining together Eco-consciousness and true HIP HOP - Higher Inner Peace, Helping Other People. It will serve as a continuation of the Going Green Living Bling curriculum taught to youth and families around health, food justice and Hip Hop. This project will feature guest artists that work in the sustainability and health field, as well as feature recipes, and the six steps to community organizing and leadership. Included in the insert will be printed copies of the recipes and six steps, as well as tools on how to grow food, and how to get involved with the Going Green Living Bling project that features growing organic food, getting healthy.

This album is used as a nutritional guide and lyrical cookbook of mentally edible Hip Hop. It features lyrics inspired by my community activism in holistic health education and urban agriculture and includes intergenerational Hip Hop collaborations. Four years ago my wife and I designed a curriculum called "Going Green, Living Bling: Redefining the Image of Wealth in Hip Hop Culture". This curriculum was designed to teach young people the importance of a localized food system, what it means to live in a food desert and how to sustain themselves in one. Some of the activities include hands-on healthy cooking and juicing demonstrations, film, Hip Hop Yoga, Urban Gardening, Introduction to Aquaponics and more. Since its creation it has been taught at various schools and has reached over 500 youth aged 7 to 24. This album serves to remind our students of what they've learned in this curriculum or introduce those youth who have never taken it, to new ideas. This album is also enriched with the six step Service Learning process of the Northeast Denver Youth Engagement Zone (Y.E.Z.) Collaborative


About Us:
GOING GREEN LIVING BLING...WE MUST CULTIVATE THE EARTH!
Going Green, Living Bling: Redefining the Image of Wealth, has become an Organic Curriculum, born from the title of a panel discussion at the first year of the Brown Suga Youth Festival. This idea came from the mind of Ietef Vita as he completed his requirements as a senior at PS1. The festival has reached it’s 9th year in 2012 and the curriculum it’s fourth. Over the past three years, with his partner and wife Neambe LeadonVita, they have taught ages 7 to 24; how to consume consciously, how to grow your own food, how to prepare healthy alternative diet meals, and the unfortunate truths about our food industry that make these tools necessary. This curriculum is also infused with art, music, yoga, holistic health, herbal remedies, live juicing, cooking and gardening. Ietef and Neambe are Parents, Eco-Cultivators, Organic Farmers, and Youth and Community Advocates.

Mission:
To expand this work with a focus on Food, Water, Environmental and Health Awareness and Security. To decrease the generational and cultural gaps that exist in our communities and to engage our youth so that they are educated, appreciated and feel empowered to do something about the issues we are facing. To use art as the platform for some of our activities to provide for the loss of it in some of our schools. To provide youth with skills they can utilize in their future and to improve upon self and community awareness, increase self esteem, shift the definition of wealth and empower them to positively affect their everyday lives (i.e. academics, personal relationships, extra curricular involvement, diet, self image).
Bullets:
- Knowledge of Self Awareness - Organic Gardening and Eating - Conscious Consumption - Art, Music and Yoga - Live Cooking and Juicing
