Street Fighter II hip-hop charity album released

A group of 20 hip-hop artists located in Richmond, Virginia has released an album of Street Fighter II covers, with all proceeds going to benefit local public schools. Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior is a twelve-track album, putting a hip-hop spin on the iconic soundtrack. Artists on the album include include radio host Black Liquid, members of Gritty City Records, DJs Phil Dice, 8-Bit Mullet, and Dope Solo/Sultans.

“I was excited to receive so much interest once I shared the concept with the collaborators,” says project organizer Alan “8-Bit Mullet” Brymer. “It’s been a great way to connect with other artists, support a good cause, and have fun re-living a game that each of us grew up loving despite our different backgrounds.”

The album is available on Bandcamp for a name-your price option. Along with the album’s release, a release and fundraising party is scheduled for tonight, June 22 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time,  at Garden Grove Brewery in Richmond. The party will include a Street Fighter II tournament, live artwork, a cosplay contest; additionally, the bar will be serving Yoga Fire, a habanero-infused Street Fighter II-themed ale. The party will be streamed here on Twitch for those outside the area.

All proceeds from the album will go to Building a Better RPS, a charity that supports school improvements in the Richmond Public School System.

About the Author

A native and lifelong Texan, I currently work in software education while contributing news, reviews, and interviews to VGMO on the side. I love the feeling that comes with the discovery of a brand new soundtrack, and always look forward to the next rekindling of that excitement.

Outside of VGMO, I enjoy playing piano, listening to classical music and film scores, and trying to go unnoticed in any stealth RPG I can find.
