Youth artists from across the Twin-Cities came together in the "Hip-Hop, History and The Arts" program at Fair School Downtown to create the "Past and Present" music EP which consists of Hip-Hop, R&B/Soul, and Spoken-Word Poetry. All original material was written and produced by the youth from the class. It was recorded at Ideawerks Studios and mastered by BayWater Music Studios.
