  • M-1 and Proof Team To Promote Hip-Hop Homeownership

    dead prez's M-1, D12's Proof and Umar Bin Hassan of The Last Poets are among the artists who have agreed to appear on an album about homeownership produced by a Detroit real estate investor.

    Investor Robert Shumake went from being homeless as a child to owning Inheritance Investment Group, one of the top real estate companies in Michigan. Now he wants to give back to a younger generation by expressing the importance of homeownership and the opportunities of real estate investing. Being a part of the hip-hop generation himself, he thought that a rap album would be the best way to get his message out to the youth.

    "I love hip-hop and I know kids really listen to the lyrics of rap songs, so I didn't see any better way to teach them about the real estate business and the importance of home ownership," says Shumake. "It is a fun, inspiring educational tool."

    After choosing to produce the album, Shumake put a call out to rappers and spoken word artists, asking them to submit demos for the project entitled Take the Land: Elements of Real Estate.

    "I gave them free reign to talk about homeownership however they wanted," says Shumake. "And the results were incredible. They made the principles of homeownership not only exciting and understandable-but radio friendly."

    Take the Land has a total of 13 tracks, all of which deal with different elements of real estate. All proceed from the sale of the CD will go to the Robert S. Shumake Foundation, a non-profit organization that distributes college scholarships in conjunction with the United Negro College Fund.

    In related news, M-1 and dp's stic.man will premiere Dead Prez: It's Bigger Than Hip Hop, a documentary about the duo, later this month at the 2006 Atlanta Hip-Hop Film Festival.

    Take the Land: Elements of Real Estate will be released on Iron Fist Records in August.
