HABC Partners with Sugar Hill Gang

The Housing Authority of Baltimore City’s (HABC) “Everybody is at Risk” COVID-19 prevention and awareness campaign has partnered with the legendary hip hop group the Sugarhill Gang to help spread the word about wearing facial coverings to stop the spread of the virus. Take a look at the innovative, exciting way we are getting the word out to keep our communities safe. The Sugarhill Gang, the trailblazing artists with the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Rapper’s Delight”, learned of HABC’s comprehensive efforts to inform and advise residents on best practices to stop the spread of COVID-19 and offered to support the “Everybody is at Risk” campaign.
