School Tyme Hip-Hop Productions,LLC (STHHP) is a music production company geared toward Edutainment, specializing in getting children ages 3–12 excited about education through the art of hip-hop. Founded February 8, 2007 by South Los Angeles native, Mr. Mengesha "Mystro" Francis, president and hip-hop producer,. Mystro who is a black entrepreneur is helping to change misconceptions about the voice of hip-hop.
The most significant goal for him, has been to convey the importance of the hip-hop culture to the school boards and their members. Currently he has been receiving a lot of positive feed back from prominent figures such as, LAUSD Boardmember of District One Marguerite Poindexter Lamotte, and Supervisor, Second District Yvonne Brathwaite Burke who has written, "The concept of your company sounds Innovative and Interesting. Keep me informed as to the progress of your company."
On April 26, 2007, the Los Angeles Sentinel published a featured article about STHHP within the entertainment section of the publication. The author, Brandon I. Brooks, Assistant Entertainment Editor states, "Fast forward thirty years after the release of School House Rock and a young black entrepreneur is ready to resurrect education through music. But instead of using rock & roll Mystro is planning on using the art of hip-hop music to teach education."
STHHP's first project is a single titled 9105 South Alphabet Boulevard.."
