In the fall semester of 2006, Student Hip-Hop Organization was founded at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Since then, it has branched to surrounding universities and has played an integral part in Virginia’s hip-hop scene while cultivating the minds of their campuses and communities.

The organization is known for its quality, independent spirit, and most importantly, authenticity. It has become an institution and creative platform for students and artists to gain experience and find opportunity in their individual passions. SHHO strives to promote higher learning through hip-hop.

The organization has selectively worked with the best up-and-coming artists, hip-hop legends, like-minded companies, and passionate student talents- all who have established SHHO as an organic uncompromising brand.



We are proud to host this FREE lecture with music journalist and blogger Andrew Noz. If you aren’t familiar with the veteran music journalist and blogger… well that’s a damn shame. Offering some of the most insightful writing and analysis in hip-hop, Noz stands out in a rap blogosphere polluted with over-saturation, imaginary influence, and the shameless chase of profit. Please join us in a talk about the increasing class divide in rap music.
