big-boi.jpgIn an effort to show some hometown spirit, OutKast’s Big Boi will perform during halftime at Georgia Tech’s home football game versus Virginia Tech on November 1. This performance, however, will also feature the Georgia Tech marching band, which will help Big Boi run through his gamut of hits. “Big Boi’s unique presence will bring Georgia Tech football into the mainstream of the Atlanta entertainment scene,” Wayne Hogan, GT’s associate athletics director for public relations told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “We are striving to provide a blockbuster entertainment experience for Atlanta’s young and diverse community. What better place than in the heart of Atlanta —as a part of Georgia Tech football?”

Ludacris and Busta Rhymes will headline the Boost Mobile Rock Corps (BMRC) concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Saturday, October 6. BMRC is a national youth volunteerism movement that empowers more than 19,000 young people to get involved and help their communities. Luda and Busta’s upcoming concert will feature 5,000 fans that volunteered four hours of community service through BMRC to earn tickets to the event.

On Sunday, September 23, a Stop the Gang Violence rally will take place at Club 3PG in Houston, Texas, to support Mesah Hawkins, the husband of the late great John “Big Hawk” Hawkins and his brother, Patrick “Fat Pat” Hawkins.

Big Hawk and Fat Pat were both pioneering Houston rappers and members of DJ Screw’s influential Screwed Up Click.
