Hip-Hop Summit Action Network and Czar Entertainment To Hold Press Conference Over Tony Yayo Situation
Russell Simmons’ Hip-Hop Summit Action Network and Dr. Benjamin Chavis will hold a press conference on Monday, April 1, at The Park Center Hotel in New York City to address the alleged attack on Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond’s son. The 14-year-old boy’s mother, Cynthia Reed, will also be present, along with Rev. Al Sharpton and a representative from Rosemond’s Czar Entertainment. The press conference will address the alleged assault of Rosemond’s son by G-Unit’s Tony Yayo. “We are involved to try to help mediate this problem,” Chavis said in a statement. “In truth, every child in our community is precious. The theme of the Hip-Hop Summit is taking back responsibility. With artistic freedom comes responsibility. Therefore, anytime a child in our community is harmed it is of great concern to us. We are hoping and praying that this matter can be resolved peacefully and resolutely. At the end of the day the interest of our children will be better served.” The press conference will take place at 11 AM at The Park Central Hotel, 870 7th Ave, in New York City.
