SemiOverweight is focusing on a grassroots music project called "Ward of State" and you can follow the movement here, on twitter and Facebook ( @WardOfState ) or check back for the official fosterhood site.

The "Ward of State" project is about connecting inspired hip-hop to Washington state foster-youth and sharing the values of collaboration, communication, follow-through, and perseverance as the true keys to success...

Tupac Shakur screamed “T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E” almost twenty years ago (The Hate U Gave Little Infants FUCKS Everybody!) Last year, the Grammy award winning R&B artist, John Legend, claimed that an equal public education is theee Civil Rights movement of the new generation. These statements are valid if our collective data on dropout and graduation rates are telling us anything. We have to bridge the gap between concepts of success they learn in school and what they've seen in real life. In short, we need to address where these kids are coming from if we are going to expect a better future.
