HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc. is a non-profit dedicated to closing the gaps in education, between parents/guardians, youth, and educators. It is also formed to help youth better prioritize images and words they receive from entertainment, and to greatly enhance the self-esteem within youth.

The HIP HOP GROWS UP alliance with Bruce George, Co-Founder of Def Poetry Jam, to head the HHGU Literary Wing was happily announced last week. Additionally, HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc. is very pleased to reveal the union with two exceptional women of God to work with the Spiritual Wing of HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc.

"It is our esteemed pleasure to announce that, in conjunction to formulating a literary wing, we have added a spiritual wing, which includes two anointed women of God: Dr. Allean Varnado and Dr. Yvonne Cole," as stated by Talia Ashley, Co-Founder of HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc.

"Having a divine connection to God is far too important to the growth and transformation of our youth and to HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc.," says Ms. CeCe Morris, Co-founder of HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc.

Dr. Allean Varnado is a dynamic Evangelist who has a heart to minister to families and young people. She also has a special intuitiveness with young people and their families, because of her quick wit and humor, to keep them laughing as she ministers to them. Dr. Varnado is mother of rapper/producer/songwriter/ Record Label Executive, Daz Dillinger, of the Hip Hop group The Dogg Pound and Aunt of the Superstar Sensation of Hip Hop and Entertainment Snoop Dogg.

Dr. Yvonne Cole is a remarkable woman of God, as an Evangelist, Gospel Singer, and Speaker. As a prophet of the Lord, Dr. Cole ministers to youth across the country. Her humble and sincere approach to youth is inspiring to see. Dr. Yvonne Cole is mother of Shun alias NUTTSO, who was hand-chosen by the late, great Tupac Shakur (2Pac) , of his group "The Outlaws." And she is also the adopted mother of Superstar R&B Sensation, Keyshia Cole.

"As an Educator, Evangelist, Singer/songwriter, I am delighted to be a part of HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc. I want to see first above all things, HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc., train youth to put God and His word first and make sure that they know, you want to be able to grow up spiritually and educationally. We want the youth to find out who they are in Christ. Then they will know that no man can stand in the way, of getting what God has provided for them through Jesus Christ. We want them educated. It is very important that they get the best. ." – Dr. Allean Varnado

"I am so glad to partner with HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc. As a minister, I see the challenge our kids face today. I feel our kids want some one to hear them and HIP HOP GROWS UP, Inc. is that ear. If the elders don''t hear the kids, then who will?" – Dr. Yvonne Cole
