This album is dedicated to all of the superheroes in our community.
Superheroes are all around us... most of the time we don't even know it.
This album tells the story of our group of superheroes who take off and fly over North Minneapolis to let everyone know that our community is more powerful than the villains who try to hold us down. The Y.N.RichKids are her to save the day! We encounter love, loss, community violence, darkness, and adults who don't believe in us. In the end, we return to earth with a powerful message... "Never give up on yourself or each other. If you need us, we will be ready to take on th haters, violence-makers, and villains who will always try to bring you down..." Being a superhero is not easy for a young person. We have villains all around us, but the superpowers that we need to defeat them have always been inside of us.
The Y.N.RichKids want to thank the dedicated that have helped us develop our superpowers.
Special thanks to:
JT Evans and King Ralio for helping produce an incredible album
KMOJ and Big Sy for helping support our dream.
The YMCA and the YMCA Beacon Center at Nellie Stone Johnson for having a place for us to land and recharge our superpowers.
Also, a huge thanks to our parents and everyone on the Northside that are superheroes with us in this battle.
To all the villains.... Watch out because we will defeat you.
