Nine 11 Thesaurus



Charlie Ahearn meets Brooklyn's Nine 11 Thesaurus at IS 291, the junior high school where they first formed and where they now act as mentors through The Beacon Center for Arts and Leadership, helping young MCs students with oppression and adversity by expressing themselves through hip-hop. Made up of some the smartest and freshest MCs of the day, they freestyle on the grounds of their birthplace--mostly a cappella but also over beats by Eminem and Mister Softee--and talk about how 9/11 catalyzed them to do something creative in the aftermath of something so destructive.
