Cause Celeb


I am writing this blog [again the first one disappeared when I pressed the back button].

I recently went to a concert with a unique perspective, the only way to get a ticket was to volunteer for four hours in different community projects [Harlem, BX, BK etc], it was put together by Chris Robinson {the video director} and Boost Mobile {good phone company-it’s a pre-paid third party Nextel carrier}.

The show was very good it started with a DJ set from DJ AM {Nicole Ritchie fiancĂ©}& Trevar Barker from Blink 182 and MTV’s ‘Meet the Barkers’, Paul Wall [#1 album in the country ‘The People’s Champ] {Special Guest Kanye West [New Album ‘Late Registration’ and GLC their song ‘Drive Slow’ appears on both Late and People’s Champ} started things off, than he was joined by Slim Thug to do their hit “Still Tippin” [Where was Mike Jones?] anyways things started real good for a hip hop show [only 45 minutes late].
Faith Evans came and did a short three song set [Album The First Lady], she really can sing, than Trevar Barker from Blink 182 and a street performer from NYC [he drums in Time Square-yeah him] they set the house blazing and was later joined by Fabolous, who went through a string of hits from his three albums [Street Dreams, Ghetto Fabolous and Real Talk] and various remixes, next came a surprise performance from the D Block a.k.a the Lox who performed very well and did songs from each solo project and nothing from the entire groups efforts ‘Money Power Respect & Were R The Streets’, Jadakiss tore it down with ‘Bye Your Side’ off Kiss of Death, than came Fat Joe [All Or Nothing] and the Terror Squad {Remy Ma, Tony Sunshine and an absent Armageddon & Prospect}Remy tore the house down [Album out soon ‘Something About Remy] and than Joe did his thing and they ended with a tribute to the one and only Big Pun.
The show with down I95 to Atlanta and Young Jeezy came out and was incredible not to mention almost half the house had on a Snow Man t-shirt outside on the line when I was coming in. He was incredible with songs from his, Thug Motivation 101, but he really got them going with ‘And than What?’ and ‘Soul Survivor’ I rally had to admit the crowd loved it they all was swaying back and forth to ‘And than What?’ doing the A-Town stomp that kid is a star.
Next and finally came T.I. and P$C click and they had a ball doing songs from T.I.’s Trap Muzik and Urban Legend as well as P$C debut album 25 to Life, they had a great time performing and the crowd had a great listening, T.I.P. closed the show with his two biggest hits, ‘Bring Em Out’ & ‘You Don’t Know Me’.

Overall the show was great and the message that if you give back you can get rewards is something that is needed to be installed in our youth today no matter who is telling them the message. More on that later….

Mic Lowrey “intro” coming soon
