The Hollywood Partnership for a Better Community project organized and ran by Teddy, showed Hollywood youth the importance of striving for goals. It was strongly supported by LAPD Captain, Michael Downing, as well as local vendors and corporations, including Toyota of Hollywood, Roebecks, Vons, Red Bull and a local night club. Youth got parents, neighbors and fellow students to pledge to teach children "tagging" is a punishable crime called vandalism, and pledge to discourage it.

Teddy rallied staff and volunteers, government officials from surrounding cities and Cease Fire anti-violence organization to celebrate the Positive Art of Hip Hop. Unlike "gangsta rap," which promotes vulgar language, illegal activities and drugs and alcohol, artists engaged in the Positive Art of Hip Hop promote a healthy life and the boundless energy of the Hip Hop culture.
