HipcoATL is a project that started in 2017 with a vision of “bridging the gap” between Liberian and United States artists. Frank Norman, owner and president of Jeni Entertainment, co-produced with producers Carnele Hudson (Church) and James Phillips (LRoc) a music compilation with artists from both countries.
The compilation consists of 16 songs by artists signed to major and independent labels. The album intertwines a part of Liberia’s heritage of sounds, rhythm and lyrics. Each artist highlights their unique experiences and culture differences of what “bridging the gap” between countries means to them.
The HipcoATL project continues to inspire bridge opportunities of expansion to national and international tours, short stories, plays, reality shows and movies.
