Richmond music community comes together to benefit public schools with Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior and streaming charity event on Twitch
Richmond, VA – 20 producers, DJs, and emcees from Richmond, Virginia are excited to present a collaborative hip-hop tribute charity album featuring the iconic melodies from Street Fighter II. Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior breathes new life into each of the world warriors’ themes, and best of all, proceeds will be donated to the Richmond-based Building a Better RPS charitable organization to benefit public schools in the area. Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior is available now wherever digital music is sold:
Collaborators including radio host Black Liquid, members of Gritty City Records, DJs Phil Dice, 8-Bit Mullet, and Dope Solo/Sultans, a co-founder of the Party Liberation Front, and others joined the project to showcase Richmond’s musical talent, support a much-needed cause, promote inclusion and unity among local groups, and pay homage to one of the greatest videogames of all time by remixing its thrilling original soundtrack.
A release show and fundraising event will be held at Garden Grove Brewery on Thursday, June 22nd, at 8:00pm. The show, which will also be streamed live on Twitch, will include a Street Fighter II tournament, costume contest, and live art by Amy Black, a prominent tattoo artist. Garden Grove will be serving a Street Fighter- themed beer, Yoga Fire: a habanero-infused India Pale Ale. Funds from donations, a raffle, and profits from CD and digital sales will go towards projects aimed at improving Richmond’s public school system.
“I was excited to receive so much interest once I shared the concept with the collaborators,” comments project organizer Alan “8-Bit Mullet” Brymer. “It’s been a great way to connect with other artists, support a good cause, and have fun re-living a game that each of us grew up loving despite our different backgrounds.”
