The mission of Emetrece Productions is to bridge education with entertainment, using hip-hop as a tool for reflection on social, political, racial, gendered and class divisions, in order to further unity amongst diverse communities.

------------

Emetrece Productions was founded as an audio-visual hip-hop production company in 2003. The name Emetrece originated many years earlier in 1991 as a nom d' plume for anonymous publications by Melisa Riviere, written out as M13, reminiscent of a weapon title. Melisa's name containing 13 letters and with the initials MR could be scripted in such a way to appear as an M13. After substantial trafficking of M13 authorship, the name was altered to Emetrece so as to identify with Melisa’s Latina origin and target the Latin community. The word strategically includes 4 letters ‘E,’ each of which relates to an element of hip-hop – DJ, graffiti art, break dance, and lyricism/rap. Emetrece Productions offers a unique fifth element of audio-visual historical documentation represented by film in the fifth circle of the logo.

Past, present and future projects by Emetrece Productions include musical collaboration between Cuba and Puerto Rico such as Son Dos Alas - Anónimo Consejo feat. Tego Calderón, Sin Permiso - Los Aldeanos & Intifada, Sangre Guerrera between SieteNueve and El B, as well as curating and organizing local and international events events such as Anthropology of Hip-Hop, Callejón de la Salsa, Ritmos Unidos: An Afro-Latin Tribute to MLK Day, and co-founding B-Girl Be: A Celebration of Women in Hip-Hop with Intermedia Arts. Internationally published albums by Emetrece Productions include Guerreros de la Tinta by Los Aldeanos, Despierta by Doble FIlo, El PacienT by Silvito el Libre, M.I. Split Personalities by Maria Isa, and El Legado by Escuadrón Patriota.
