Student Activity Series: Gulfton Rap Team Advocates for Solidarity

YES Prep students meet the high academic standards of YES Prep while participating in extracurricular activities after school and on the weekends. In our Student Activity Series, we spotlight students who dedicate themselves to academic and extracurricular success. In this spotlight, we’ll meet YES Prep Gulfton’s La Fuerza Rap Team.

Coached by YES Prep Gulfton teacher Kevin Hritz, La Fuerza Rap Team was featured in a TedX Youth Houston event in 2013 and is part of research on rap narrative and psychological well-being conducted by the City University of New York’s Graduate Center.

Three members of La Fuerza, Cameron Brown, Edwin Cruz, and Carlos Razo, performed their original song “Predator” at the first annual Solidarity Walk on April 1.

Check out the video and photos of their performance below.
