Rap Snacks, which calls itself “the official snack brand of Hip Hop,” has been keeping busy outside of creating snacks for hip-hop heavyweights like Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Migos, Master P, and Snoop Dogg. The company showcased its digital content series, Rap Snacks Symphony, earlier this year at the National HBCU Auxiliary and Dance Directors Association Conference. This occurred back in March at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park, Georgia.
Rap Snacks Symphony is a digital content series featuring an HBCU marching band and dance team playing the music of artists who appear on Rap Snacks bags. Last year, the featured band was Central State University’s Invincible Marching Marauders, out of Wilberforce, Ohio. This year’s edition featured Clark Atlanta University’s Marching Panthers and Essence Dance Team.
