The 7th annual hip hop summit was held at Liberty Theater Saturday. Music artists came from all across the state to mentor youth about the hip-hop culture and the industry. Organization leaders want to instill positive messages about love and hope in today's music and are encouraging the young generation to do just that.
They also say education is key to making it in the business.
"I need all my entertainers to understand that if you want to increase your vocabulary you might want to pay attention in English class. If you want to learn how to count your money, the money that you will make in the entertainment business, you will have to understand math," said Barry Brown.
A talent showcase was held during the summit.
