About Us

Words Beats & Life began as a Hip-Hop conference at the University of Maryland in the fall of 2000; our founders worked to create a vehicle to propel individual lives and communities through Hip-Hop. Today, Words Beats & Life uses a holistic approach to youth and community development that involves Hip-Hop artists, scholars, educators, activists, and allies. We fulfill our mission through 5 programmatic areas. The Academy, The Cipher, The Jam, The Embassy, and The Hustle.
