AMERICAN HISTORY THROUGH HIP HOP started as an assignment in a history class. Two friends made a song all about the Erie Canal and the teacher liked it. That led to this project, which tells the stories of American History in a new way, using the beats and the lyric styles of hip hop to get a new generation excited to learn.


Nick A. has loved music for as long as he can remember, and fell in love with history early in school. Currently a senior at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City, he takes vocal classes every day and is surrounded by music. He spends his free time biking around and making songs. All the beats and lyrics are his, except for "1825" which was a collaboration on lyrics with Lucas C.
