Local children were given the experience of a lifetime as they took part in filming a music video last month. The video for "Stop The Violence," by local hip-hop group The Rhyte Hitters, was filmed at Mount Carmel Baptist Church on Beach 71 Street on October 18.

The concept for the video, said True, the group's leader, is to "save lives and clean up the streets … and teach the kids right from wrong. That's the future. That's the main reason why I had the kids, including two of my own kids, in the video."

The group is currently working on their latest album, "Stop the War - Part 2: Unfinished Business."

"Stop in the Name of Peace," is the final dance step for the dancers who took part. "Stop in the Name of Peace," is the final dance step for the dancers who took part.

Outside the church, True and the children raise the peace sign. "We're trying to spread the word around about stopping the violence," said True.
