Arts To Literacy (ATL) made its debut in Brooklyn, NY and migrated to Miami after identifying the inequalities in educational opportunities that children below the poverty line are expected to endure. ATL introduces young people to an entrepreneurial world of art and entertainment while cultivating healthy self-expression paradigms, problem solving skills, self-control and academic achievement.
ATL’s mission is to use art, filmmaking and creative writing to teach personal sustainability, foster crucial life-skills, build self-esteem and ignite hope for the future of the disenfranchised youth of Miami- Dade. It is our vision to eradicate the “cradle to penitentiary” mentality that has eroded the ambition of our youth for far too long.
The program is designed to identify each participant’s strength and grant them the opportunity to apply those strengths artistically and express themselves through fine art, writing and producing short films as well as writing and publishing literature on their own from start to finish. Through this process children in the program learn the invaluable critical thinking and life skills involved in taking their dreams from inception to reality and most importantly self-sustainability for navigating in a world that is too often closed to them.
A female chorus supports the song in a way that honors Chubb’s 1980s roots, the same era that inspired The High & Mighty. To begin the second verse, the BK MC raps, “Well coming back…to whatever year, this is / Still cold chillin’, you know the biz / We’re still rockin’ shell-toe Adidas / Short walk, c’mon, Cleetus / Nutty professor, in the sector / If ya bust pipes, you must have pressure / the Aqua-man with the scepter / I got jokes, Eddie Murph’ for the hecklers / Test if ya want, I’ll taunt you / Scary, ain’t it? I’ll haunt you.”
The beat breaks at the end with a classic nod to late-1980s Dance-Rap. Chubb Rock and DJ Mighty Mi created a vibe that’s timeless and feel-good, all reinforced by skills.
