Upstar Records is a professional music studio within Sunset Youth Services, a support program for youth and their families. This weekend the label showcases the work of young artists with the release of the album "Life Is Not a Game."
The music highlights the struggles young people face growing up without privilege. It's a collaboration of many artists who participate in the community-building work at the drop-in program located at 3918 Judah Street in San Francisco's Outer Sunset neighborhood.
In this edition of Bay Area Beats, we'll meet two of the rappers and a sound engineer who contributed to the compilation.
