In the fall semester of 2006, Student Hip-Hop Organization was founded at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Since then, it has branched to surrounding universities and has played an integral part in Virginia’s hip-hop scene while cultivating the minds of their campuses and communities.

The organization is known for its quality, independent spirit, and most importantly, authenticity. It has become an institution and creative platform for students and artists to gain experience and find opportunity in their individual passions. SHHO strives to promote higher learning through hip-hop.

The organization has selectively worked with the best up-and-coming artists, hip-hop legends, like-minded companies, and passionate student talents- all who have established SHHO as an organic uncompromising brand.



ODU SHHO just announced their first event as an organization by bringing Malice of the Clipse for a lecture, Q&A, book signing, meet and greet, and hell he might even play musical chairs with you. Who knows what can happen? He’ll be stopping by Norfolk March 3rd so make sure you mark your calendars.

If that’s not good enough for you, UVA SHHO will also be bringing Grammy award winning producer 9th Wonder for a lecture on February 22nd. Isn’t expansion great? Isn’t learning great? Both events are free and open to the public.
