Tyler worked with J. Michael Harrison and WRTI to partner with family members from the Emmy-nominated film QUEST to bring "Freestyle Fridays" to the performance space at the station's studio. Rappers and artists from the local community were given an outlet every other Friday to express themselves through music, with the extra opportunity of workshops to learn and grow their craft. Tyler was fortunate to lead these workshops, along with running recording sessions and live events throughout this effort. This highlight video is a compilation of 20 sessions of Freestyle Fridays at WRTI in 2019.
