Upper Playground x Oakland’s Youth UpRising Center x Too $hort

Upper Playground recently partnered with the non-profit Youth UpRising, a multi-service youth leadership development center in East Oakland, California. Iconic Oakland rapper Too $hort is a fixture at the center, and he mentors an artist development class for aspiring young MCs.

As a Bay Area based company and a strong supporter of the arts community, Upper Playground was honored to work with this organization that fosters creativity and entrepreneurship among young adults. Upper Playground provided apparel and photo services for the young adults to shoot publicity photos for their portfolios. Too $hort was on hand to represent as well.

A sampling of images from the photo shoot at the Youth UpRising Center is included below.
