Today on Great Big Story, meet the Man Bringing Hip-Hop to the Deaf, in the latest episode from our Human Condition series.

Our producers spoke with Matt Maxey, the CEO and founder of DEAFinitely Dope, whose personal hearing loss inspired him to share rap music with the deaf community. Matt did not learn to sign until he was 18 years old, but he practiced by signing to his favorite rap artists. After uploading videos of his signing to Youtube, Matt was picked up by rappers like Chance the Rapper and D.R.A.M. where he helps bring music to a community otherwise excluded from such activities. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.

“…why not create something to where people can feel included and not just be deaf.”
