Progressive rap cinema artist Chae Hawk continues to bring creatives together in Buffalo to produce music that delivers a message. Currently Chae is taking that message to city schools in order to teach the students about what it means to be a true artist in myriad capacities.
Together with other inspirational artists such as Eric Crittenden (Buffalo Arts and Technology Center) and Billy Drease (rap artist), along with creative juices from WNY Book Arts Center, Chae is helping to change the enterprising face of Buffalo one student at a time.
The are many different aspects of the music industry, from sourcing labels to printing posters. Chae and his brand Teamwork are constantly trying to figure out how to open the minds of young people, and potential doors at the same time.
