While a lot of artists and critics like to discuss whether or not Hip Hop is dead, how many of them are actually doing anything about the situation? Hushh is one group that’s been taking action and they’ve been drawing quite a lot of interest from Hip Hop’s elite for their efforts.

Hushh, which is comprised of the Connecticut duo of Status and Diadem, stands for Help Us Save Hip Hop. The list of old clichés and recent phenomenons that Status and Diadem are looking to save Hip Hop from is a long one. Hushh wants to save Hip Hop from corny songs that revolve around creating a new dance or catchphrase. Hushh wants to save Hip Hop from gangster posturing and posing. Hushh wants to save Hip Hop from straying too far from its essence. The duo are attempting to reach these goals by creating music the way it’s supposed to be done, skillfully and from the heart.

Webster's defines a hero as "A legendary figure of great strength and ability - one that shows great courage". In the world of Hip Hop, the measure of a man seems to be much more about celebrity image and much less about actual strength and substance. Somewhere during the evolution of Hip Hop, the art form lost its meaning and more importantly, its conscience - which is exactly why the music duo known by the acronym H.U.S.H.H. (Help Us Save Hip Hop) may be able to share their relevance. Perhaps passion and determination are just enough for two unlikely hero’s from Connecticut to step up and change the game as we all know it.

Diadem and DJ Status are no strangers to impossible situations, their bond has only strengthened throughout their turbulent lives and regardless of their undeniably heartbreaking stories, they have found renewed strength through their unconditional love of Hip Hop.

In addition to their passion and conviction, these guys definitely have the goods, and despite the absence of Dia's arms and legs the duo has managed to create a sound that has gained the respect and support of some of Hip Hop's finest heavy hitters. Among their supporters are 50 Cent, Missy Elliott, Wyclef Jean, Wu Tang, Akon and Snoop Dog with their most vocal advocate being Method Man who has included Stat and Dia in his upcoming reality show project, "Can''t forget my people HUSHH, I''m pitching my reality tv show, I''ve included Stat and Dia."
