About this video

Robert Rivera’s The Good Life Organization (GLO) catches young people who slip through the cracks of our educational and social systems. He catches them with hip-hop, storytelling, videography, and personal connection.

He does it because he stepped out of the cracks himself in a journey that took him from “dope dealer to hope dealer.” Hip-hop is their history, and it’s important that they know it and claim it, and build off that foundation, Rivera says. “If our kids today can recapture that narrative, realize their link in the chain of tradition, it’s not so farfetched that they might have the idea for the new Facebook.”
