KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Union Station was packed Sunday morning with visitors, tourists, and dancers.

"This project is really kind of life-changing a little bit," dancer India Sorrells said.

"The historical aura of it is really amazing," dancer Susan Dietrich said. "It makes it feel a lot more energetic actually."

Hip hop artist Krizz Kaliko used the historic building as the backdrop for his newest video.

"It's big, it's beautiful. The way the ceilings look, I love the way the walls look in here," Krizz Kaliko said.

Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne produces Krizz Kaliko's music. This latest project is about giving chances to local people.

"We grabbed dancers mostly from the inner city in Kansas City. And some from the outskirts: Lee's Summit, Overland Park, wherever. But it was definitely Kansas City dancers and I wanted them to do it. Somebody gave me a opportunity. Tech N9ne gave me an opportunity 16 years ago," Krizz Kaliko said.

Tech N9ne, about to go on his own tour, stopped by to check out production.

"Everything I do is for Kansas City. I mean, this is my comfort zone; this is my habitat," Tech N9ne said.

He said productions like this are another way to keep KC on the map.

"I got to go meet all the kids dancing in it," he said. "It's just so beautiful that we can create something like that and everybody wants to be involved. We got that much love here in Kansas City, because we are Kansas City."
