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,

Rick Ross Opens Montgomery Wing Stop Location

Rick Ross continues to expand his Wingstop franchise and opens a new location in Montgomery, Alabama at 6518 Atlanta Hwy.  Rozay’s Boss Wings III LLC company owns several other Wingstop locations.  Previously, he has opened in New York, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.  In fact, this new Montgomery location is his second Wingstop in Alabama.  He has one already in Valley, AL.

Rozay is high on the success of his Maybach Music Group and tells All Hip Hop,

“We are thrilled to be expanding so quickly in the state of Alabama and I am very proud to be a part of the Wingstop family.  Wingstop is recognized nation-wide as having some of the best chicken wings around, hand-sauced and tossed in big bold flavors. It’s a brand that is being readily and enthusiastically embraced.”

Ricky recently partnered with Wingstop for a scholarship program to send kids to college.  Congratulations to the BAWSE!!!  Sounds like he’s doing great things and giving back.  Wish him continued success, although I’m sure he doesn’t need it, because Rozay has been on top for a long time now!!!  #staywinning

50 Cent Arrested In St. Kitts For Cussing

50 Cent probably knew better, but for some reason he ignored the rules and cussed while performing in the Caribbean.  His song P.I.M.P. was playing, but the DJ didn’t have a clean version, so he played the dirty version.  However, when Fifty’s lyrics came to the part of, “I’m a MotherF*ckin’ P.I.M.P” Fif didn’t move the mic from his lips and repeated the lyrics.  This is a big deal in St. Kitts, which can get you a big fine and land you in jail.  That’s exactly what happened to Fifty Cent Saturday night.

The concert was over 40,000 people.  Fifty Cent rep says he was only there to host and not perform, but somehow 50 performed on stage.  After the performance the police took Fifty into custody for using profanity in public.  In 2003, DMX was arrested in St. Kitts for the same crime.  It’s reported that 50 Cent has already paid his fine and back in the USA, but it’s a lesson learned.  His rep says, “for future trips to St. Kitts he will leave the motherf****** in the United States.
