  • Em and Russell Simmons to Host Detroit Hip Hop Summit

    Eminem & Russell Simmons To Host Detroit Hip Hop Summit - Ill Fred 17.04.2003 - 20:47
    Eminem will host the largest Hip Hop Summit ever held in the city of Detroit next Saturday (April 26), along with Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, the Detroit branch of the NAACP and radio station FM 98 WJLB.

    "For me, Detroit symbolizes hip hop in a lot of different ways", Eminem said. "Everybody who's been involved in Detroit hip hop culture here has spent years trying to bring light to the city, the same way Russell Simmons worked to bring hip hop to the attention of the world. And the same way the Mayor is working to put Detroit back in the spotlight. It's the struggle to be heard, and to be recognized. It's our time, both hip hop's and Detroit's".

    Russell Simmons announced today that the HSAN will co-sponsor the Summit, which will be held at Detroit's Cobo Arena, which will hold 13,000 patrons. The Summit will be free to the public on a first come, first serve basis.

    Participants include Shady Records President Paul Rosenberg, Slum Village, Def Jam Records President Kevin Liles, Redman, Method Man, Cam'ron & The Diplomats, Keith Murray, Capone-N-Noreaga, The D.O.C., Doug E. Fresh and others.

    The theme of the Detroit's Summit will be 'Remix: Rebuilding...Refocusing...Reinvesting...Resurgence '. The primary focus is utilizing hip hop for youth empowerment.

    Economic, political, social impact and strategies for youth empowerment will all be discussed.

    The Summit is being held in conjunction with the Detroit branch of NAACP's Freedom Weekend. During the weekend, Simmons will be honored by the NAACP with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his work with youth.

    "Our commitment is to help empower the youth of today, who are the most gifted and talented generation of young people that we've ever been blessed to have", Russell Simmons said. "Assembling in Detroit, amidst its rebirth under a dynamic, young 32 year old hip hop Mayor, is a great tribute to the power of hip hop", asserted Russell Simmons.

    One-Days: 50 Cent Back on Top - Dedicato 16.04.2003 - 21:48
    Here’s a cure for your post-tax-day hangover: 50 Cent’s making change for the music biz.
    Change for the better, that is, as the Shady/Aftermath/ Interscope rapper’s The New Breed appears likely to sell nearly 300k in its first week, according to early reports from national accounts.
    Interest in the new title’s out-of-the-box blast is high because it’s a new-concept DVD plus CD combo (as opposed to CD plus bonus DVD), packaged and merchandised as an album, and it comes just two months after 50 Cent’s huge debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin’. The early numbers for New Breed signal that it will be an easy #1 on next week’s chart.
