HIP-HOP group Rap 4 Change is tack­ling all the hard sub­jects one verse at a time.

Band mem­bers Os­car Singh, Ni­tasha Prasad, Pa­trick Malcolm and Phill Takairangi are head­ing into pri­mary schools ed­u­cat­ing young peo­ple on the ef­fects of bul­ly­ing, peer pres­sure, and drugs and al­co­hol.

Group man­ager Ned Narouz said the group wants to get its mes­sage across to ev­ery pri­mary school in Syd­ney. “There were no pro­grams like this tar­geted at pri­mary school kids, we wanted to get kids be­fore th­ese prob­lems start to arise,” he said.

The Rap 4 Change group is hold­ing a fundraiser with a few well known artists such as DJ Meka and V-Tribe.

The event will be on Satur­day, Novem­ber 21, at the Lucky Aus­tralian Tav­ern in St Marys. For more de­tails head to their Face­book page “Rap 4 Change”.
