Have a great weekend. Headed to ATL for the Livest Black Event of the year [in my humble opinion]. The 2007 Atlanta Football Classic - where FAMU and TSU go head-to-head for a high profile football game every year. The two worlds reunite to stunt, show off the LIVEST band [clearly FAM-GOT-DAYUM-U], and have some good ole' HBCU fun. You saw the band at the Grammy's with Kanye in 2006, at the Super Bowl in 2007 with Prince, on the Obama campaign, so if you're in ATL come to see them live - how "we" do it.
In the game's tradition of competition and community service, proceeds raised by the Atlanta Football Classic benefit 100 Black Men of Atlanta's Project Success, an educational, mentoring and enrichment program providing financial and academic support and cultural enrichment to local high school and elementary school students.
The largest of The 100’s fundraising activities, The Classic is held in the Georgia Dome and has been dubbed the “Super Bowl of Black College Football – a reference to its notoriety and attendance.
Additional events, that are held classic weekend, include a town hall meeting on African-American health issues; a college debate; health, job & college fairs, a corporate corner; pre-game receptions and a scholars’ parade right down Peachtree Street.
The ATL Football Classic is the second largest recurring college sporting event in the state of Georgia, the Classic generates more than $30 million in Georgia’s economy each year and now has a permanent exhibit in the Dome commemorating its success.
So to all, have a "feel good" weekend - and just to make sure, here's one of my latest "feel good" songs by Kanye to get you through your day:
Favorite part ---> Lets go on a living spree, shiiiit - they say the best things in life are free. <---my new motto.
