Snoop Dogg , Kurtis Blow, Curtis Young (Dr.Dre`s son) and other international stars of hip-hop took part in a special charity project “Helping is trendy” (“Pomaganie jest trendy”) which is organised by Polish rapper Gorzki (aka Uncle G) from Kalisz – the oldest towns in Poland.
Above those stars in the song “HIT Rappers” are featured such artists as Kokane, Rakaa from Dilated Peoples, PMD, Medusa, Prodigal Sunn and famous Polish opera singer Alicja Wegorzewska.
This song is something very unique because it`s an original mix of mainstream rap artists as well as legendary underground hip-hop artists. The purpose of the recording is to help children with autism from the Polish foundation “New Hope” (“Nowa Nadzieja”). The title HIT means Helping Is Trendy – which is the name of the charity action promoted in Poland and all over the world.
Autism is a serious problem. Not everybody knows that every 1 child from 88 children suffers from this disease.
Life of these kids often means sad isolation from normal socjety. Diagnosis at early stage and good therapy including proper diet helps to cure this disease and make life easier and improve it. Many famous people including Mozart, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton or Marilyn Monroe had autism at some stage of their life. Today if we talk about autism we think of such great people as Bill Gates, Keanu Reeves, Robbie Williams or one of the best football players Leo Messi from Barcelona club.
One of the leading specialists concerning autism dr. John Green form Portland is coming to Poland several times every year to help children with autism from New Hope Foundation. The media aren`t interested in the problem of autism that`s why we created a special project with stars to gain attention of the media – says Gorzki- raper and organiser of “Helping is trendy” project.
“Helping is trendy” is taking place four years already. The biggest Polish artists participate in it including artists from USA as 2Pac`s brother Mopreme Shakur (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGPrqfrKZGI&feature=youtu.be ) or Truth Hurts and Eric Bobo from Cypress Hill (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhuyZDoSlSM). All the artists recorded their vocals absolutely for free which is something special.

The music was written by acclaimed Polish composers Marcin Nierubiec and RobGitarnik. They also did the music for the Polish edition with the participation of Polish music legends (here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zq4-acCjxOQ )
“ It`s very important that we all help the kids. Our help can really change their life. If someone buys the CD all of the profits will go to the New Hope Foundation to help children with autism. If you can`t afford the CD you can also share this recording on your facebook or twitter profile. You can watch commercials on youtube to gain money for the children. I would also like to ask the media to show big heart for children with autism by promoting the song, especially the radio stations and tv channels. Remember that by helping the kids you help the world become a better place – Snoop Dogg explains.
