Paying it forward has been instrumental in Absoloot’s success. He prides himself on making progress in the community his priority. This has led to various partnerships with many non-profit organizations and schools. With Absoloot’s outstanding image in the community and positive influence through music, mentoring, education and activism, he has been the the ideal fit for non-profit organizations such as:

- Urgent Inc.

For years he was constantly told, “Positive hip hop was wack and it would never sell.” One would expect this from your enemies but, even friends and family were apprehensive to support Absoloot’s mission. A very simple mission. To do what he felt was right. To know his lyrics were affecting his nephew and would eventually have an effect on his daughter. He decided he didn’t care what the naysayers had to say or how they felt. He would not allow his voice or any platform he utilized to put out ANY negative imagery or damaging stereotypes. His music would ONLY contain conscious or positive messages to help re-shape the narrative about black men in America.
His determination and persistence has most certainly paid off. Now, companies and nonprofits organizations are consistently reaching out and interested in working together. Given that, most companies want their company to be associated with a positivity and are eager to have him for speaking engagements, performances, mini workshops and mentoring. The age old saying just might be right.
“Paralyze resistance with persistence.”
