BREAKING: Hip-Hop Chess Federation Featured in San Jose Mercury News !!!
SAN JOSE -- From the confines of a tiny studio nestled in the city's Seven Trees neighborhood, an upstart group that burst onto the scene seven years ago by introducing Bay Area youth to an innovative fusion of chess, martial arts and hip-hop still found itself an underdog needing to increase its profile.
That moment may be here for the Hip-Hop Chess Federation, which tapped the studio -- housed in a community center and library -- to record a locally produced album steadily gaining buzz in the hip-hop underground, coinciding with its expansion to the Los Angeles area.
