Richmond music community joins to benefit public schools with Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior and streaming charity event on Twitch.
Twenty producers, DJs, and emcees from Richmond, Virginia are excited to present a collaborative hip-hop tribute charity album featuring the iconic melodies from Street Fighter II. Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior breathes new life into each of the world warriors' themes, and best of all, proceeds will be donated to the Richmond-based Building a Better RPS charitable organization to benefit public schools in the area. Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior is available today wherever digital music is sold.

Check out the tracks on Bandcamp.

A release show and fundraising event will be held at Garden Grove Brewery on Thursday, June 22nd, at 8:00pm. The show, which will be streamed live on Twitch, will include a Street Fighter 2 tournament and costume contest. Garden Grove will also be serving a Street Fighter-themed beer, Hundred Hop Slap.

Funds from donations, a raffle, and profits from CD and digital sales will go towards projects aimed at improving Richmond's public school system.
