Why Give? The Impact

Sphere of Hip-Hop has been serving the hip-hop community since 1997. SOHH’s reach and influence extends beyond our presence on the web. We support many offline organizations to help them reach young fans of hip-hop music with substance. Through artist mentoring and consulting, we’re empowering artists and record labels from all over the world to approach their craft with excellence. We have regular visitors from well over 100 countries around the world.

A little help goes a long way towards being able to maintain, provide free services to artists, and to partner with youth based organizations around the world. A small amount of resources can go a very long way.

Your Donation Matters – We receive feedback, letters, tweets, messages, email, and more from people all around the world sharing what Sphere of Hip-Hop means to them. Here are a few:

“It has been my go-to place to discover new artists as well as find out what’s going on with the artists I have supported in the past. The site has been a staple for informing me about what is going on in the hip-hop community. Many artists you post have helped me through a lot of good times and bad.” – Kevin M.

“Propaganda performed at our outreach this weekend for our young adults. Had it not been for SOHH, I never would have experienced his music.” – Amy

“It’s no small testament to what a blessing SOHH has been in my life that probably 90% of the artists I’ve built with and listened to consistently over the past ten years are those I was introduced to via the site.” – Paradox (artist)

“ lets me be myself: loving God and hip-hop at the same time…” – Kare (Norway)

“It’s always a special connection when I meet people in person who I have interacted with on SOHH!” – Nathan

“Sphere of Hip Hop introduced me to CHH and has helped keep this radio station cool.” – Bill (Renegade Radio)

“I’ve followed you since the start. Big up.” – Yann (Switzerland)

“Not only did Sphere of Hip Hop have the artists I was inquiring about I got introduced to other artists I did not know about. I’m super thankful for Sphere of Hip Hop carrying the artists they do. Also, Sphere of Hip Hop has been wonderful at allowing me to purchase certain cd’s that are not in circulation anymore.” – Christian

“When I was facing down turbulent years in high school SOHH served as a resource for hard to find and incredible music that encouraged my faith, creativity, and love for lyricism and Hip Hop culture. To be able to access this resource into my young adult and adult years has been an INCREDIBLE blessing! I look forward to many more years of benefiting from SOHH and even introducing this fantastic (site) to my own kids!” – Jason

“By the way, I grew up listening to you guys. First song that caught my attention was Dirt’s Devils Heaven on a radio station in Miami. I wish was still a thing because you guys had a gold mine of music on that page, and very likely some songs I’ll never hear again. Back in high school I used to go to the library by my house, put on headphones, listen to random SOHH songs, write down my favorites on a mini notebook for later, and work on all my college level essays. Thanks!” – Jose

“I don’t know if I’ve ever told you, but I really appreciate all the work you’ve done with the sphere site. It provided me a community when I had years of confusion and depression. The forums made a huge impact on my life.” – Anonymous fan from Twitter

“Because in the midst of a world filled with really bad music, you guys keep us in the know about music that matters.” – Anonymous fan from Twitter
