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

Emily McMillan

After graduating with a master's in teaching, I realized that I wasn't quite ready to leave video games and their soundtracks behind. I've been keeping in touch with the video game music world from Texas by working with VGMO and updating my own YouTube cover channel. 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. Along with teaching and writing, I also enjoy listening to film scores, classical music, and playing pretty much any RPG you can name.
