Two city students performed raps for the Relationship Abuse Prevention Program at Brooklyn Borough Hall Plaza Wednesday.
Queens resident Tyriek Overton and Bronx resident Jovan Martinez were named "Rap for RAPP" contest winners.
The two students used hip-hop to explain what makes relationships work.
They were presented awards at Brooklyn Borough Hall Plaza and were given 'Beats by Dre' headphones.
The raps also stressed the need to reinstate three-million dollars of city funding for the program, which faces closure on July 1.
Teen RAPP helps students deal with all types of relationship violence.
"I rap for RAPP to help end silence, silence about domestic violence," Overton said. "With kindness, we spread information and knowledge and show you what an abuser or victim sees through their eyelids. The time is now.”
