Rick Ross Gives Back, Holds First Annual Rick Ross Be Out Day

rickross.jpgRick Ross is teaming up with the Magic Johnson Burger King Restaurant chain to help make the back to school season a little bit easier for students in his hometown of Miami. On August 8, the Def Jam MC is holding the first annual “Rick Ross Be Out Day,” during which students will receive free school supplies such as backpacks, pencils and pens. The day will also include giveaways from the events sponsors which include Slip N’ Slide Records and Miami’s WEDR 99 Jamz radio station. WEDR on air personality DJ Khaled is scheduled to host the event, and surprise celebrity guests are expected to attend. “This day is for the kids,” Rick Ross said in a statement. “I want to give back to my city, it’s all about the kids, they need to know that if they stay in school, work hard and stay focused, they can be anything they want to be, and they will succeed.”

    I did the block party/ back to school thing for my hood for a couple of years. and some of the parents Hated me for it, I bought some back packs, pens pencils notebook, barbeque out my own pockets,(for the kids) we shut the entire street down for one day, even the police showed up and had a good time..No shootings, no fights. but the Parents didnt want a young Ni$$a like me at that time to have power and to put something together positive.. We complain about not having anyone to do these things, and when someone does it (Rick Ross) we are still complaining about who’s doing it (are you donating/helping ETC)..Man Much love and God Bless..If a few Celebs and/or ordinary people would do this in every city.Imagine what the power of influece would do for our children…
    PLU (Peace,Love and Unity)
