T.I. and Killer Mike started a campaign to have rappers move their money to local black banks.  This has been a long time coming.  They have both opened accounts in Atlanta at the black owned bank, Citizen Trust Bank.

They’ve encouraged others to do the same, such as Young Thug and Young Dolph.  They’ve also encouraged Houston rappers to make the same move at the local black-owned bank in H-Town, Unity National Bank. This included Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Willie D, Trae The Truth, and others

To commemorate this historic moment T.I. and Killer Mike took to their Instagram accounts to show the festive occassion.  On the show What Now? MTV Town Hall Meeting, Killer Mike asked the people to move their dollars into black owned banks.  Since making this request, Citizen Trust Bank reported that an additional 8,000 accounts have been opened.

This is a big move for the black community, and hopefully more rappers as well as, athletes, actors and other celebrities will follow suit.  I think it’s important we show solidarity in this manner and make efforts to empower our communities.  Now, it’s all up to the black banks to start doing good and honest business with black people and if so, this could be the first phase of change for our people.

Do your part and put your money in your local black bank.  Even if it’s just a percentage of your income, it can create change.  Here’s a list of black owned banks in America,
