CHALLENGE RUNS JANUARY 1-31, 2018
December 29, 2017 - Philadelphia Hip-Hop Legend Grand Agent will be hanging out with Cut Supreme all day on Thursday Jan. 4, 2018. On both of Cut’s shows that day, The Training Session (1-3 pm) and The Trim Mix Party (Midnight-3am), GA will discuss how his group, Tribeca-Grand, is motivating social media to take a stand for a cause of their choice with the launch of their #TakeAKneeChallenge. The contest running January 1-31, 2018 asks participants to upload an Instagram video of themselves kneeling, explaining their cause and playing the group’s song “Take A Knee” in the background.
One winner will be selected in each of the following four categories: Number of Plays, Number of Likes, Number of Comments and Number of Shares and Reposts. The winner of each category wins $250 and will be featured in Tribeca-Grand’s “Take A Knee” video to premiere on February 3, 2018. To enter the contest and to read the rules, visit TakeAKneeChallenge.com.
The challenge was inspired by Tribeca-Grand’s desire to unite people and to create awareness around their song “Take A Knee.” "We wanted to accomplish a few things,” Tribeca-Grand says. “The song itself was to remind people of the issue that sparked the movement, which is police brutality. Beyond that, we recognize not everyone relates to that issue, but we felt confident that everyone has an issue they feel as strongly about. We figured if people were able to get their own issue off their chest, the sharing of ideas could foster some empathy for one another."
“Take A Knee” is performing well on college and underground hip hop radio shows, currently holding the No. 5 spot on Nasty Nes’s National College Radio Chart RapAttackLives.com. The group has also been interviewed on:
Forthcoming bookings include Sirius XM shows Rap Is Outta Control with DJ Eclipse and Showoff Radio with Statik Selektah, both in January, 2018.
