Empowering youth



Above .500 Inc. presents a transformative talent search event aimed at discovering the next generation of conscious artists aged 15-25. Embracing the urgent need to shift the narrative in mainstream music away from perpetuating stereotypes, violence, and hyper-sexualized content, this initiative seeks to empower youth by providing a platform for 10 selected participants to showcase their music, focusing on genuine life experiences and positive storytelling.
