Who We Are
Sphere of Hip-Hop has been supplying top quality, faith-based Hip-Hop to the masses for more than 15 years. One of the first sites of its kind, Sphere of Hip-Hop has been an innovative and creative outlet for Hip-Hop aficionados across the globe. With over 50,000 unique hits monthly, Sphere of Hip-Hop influences an audience worldwide by supplying free music downloads, streaming, podcasts, information on record labels and artists, and a strong sense of community where fans and artists can come together and create relationships built off the core of conjoined passion in us all… The Music!
Sphere has contributed to multiple faith-based ministries and at-risk youth outreaches in over a dozen countries where Hip-Hop has been, and continues to be, at the core of their culture, with more than 35,000 CD’s donated thus far. Sphere has also been a contributor to many stateside events and music festivals where people who’ve never been exposed to faith-based Hip-Hop have been introduced to some of the most prolific artists in our genre.

Why SOHH needs YOU, and this Campaign
Sphere is enlisted to participate in another music festival in July of this year. We believe it’s essential for Sphere to not only participate in the festival, but to directly impact the lives of the many listeners we will come in contact with while there. For us to do that in a deep and meaningful way, we need to supply these listeners with Top-Quality music, in a physical format. The most convenient and widely used method for physical music distribution in 2012, is the Compact Disc. Sphere of Hip-Hop is running this campaign, so we can take the necessary steps to supply this new audience with a physical product, and a great listening experience. To accomplish this goal with minimal impact to our current operating budget, we need to raise $2500. This $2500 will pay for the CD Replication, and Marketing materials associated with what we’re giving away…
So, what exactly are we giving away? We never thought you’d ask!
Sphere is currently organizing some of our genre’s best and most sought after artists to contribute to a brand new Sphere of Hip-Hop Compilation Album! This album will feature EXCLUSIVE tracks from many artists in our scene. NONE of these songs will be made available ANYWHERE ELSE! Your only opportunity to get these exclusive tracks, are by contributing to the Sphere campaign, right here!
With over 40 people involved in this project contributing their efforts out of the kindness of their hearts, our only costs on this project will be the actual cost of the product itself. 2000 CD’s and Stickers to match... plus shipping and this campaigns administrative cost via the campaign website. Beats, Rhymes, Engineering, Graphic Design, etc… All being donated by those we’ve asked to be involved!
What We Need & What You Get
$1: MP3 Download of the Sphere of Hip-Hop Compilation Album.
$10: Deluxe MP3 Download including Instrumentals and A Capella’s
$15: Deluxe MP3 Download, and the Physical CD in all its audio glory!

$100: Deluxe MP3 Download, the CD, the Sticker Pack, and your name as Executive Producer on the CD!
What happens if SOHH exceeds this goal?
We’re hoping this happens, as we have so many more things we would love to contribute towards. Ministries, festivals, artists who need our support, etc… Any additional capital raised will greatly increase our capability and reach to those who need to hear the message that the music we support offers up.
