Hip Hop x Financial Empowerment with fintech founder, DIVINE of Solvent

In this episode of "Hip Hop Can Save America," host Manny Faces engages with financial tech entrepreneur DIVINE to examine the intersection of Hip Hop, technology, and finance. DIVINE introduces his platform, Solvent, which empowers system-impacted individuals through financial literacy and entrepreneurship. They discuss Solvent's mission and services, along with DIVINE's journey "from crack to rap to tech," highlighting the potential of hip-hop to inspire positive change and innovation.

Manny and DIVINE delve into the transferable skills between street life and the corporate world and the importance of financial literacy for those re-entering society post-incarceration. Quotes like, "We're bringing financial literacy to the forefront of reintegration," and discussions about Solvent's partnership with Visa showcase the practical steps being taken towards financial inclusion. This episode provides a grounded look at how Hip Hop culture can influence and elevate underserved communities through technology and finance.
