Young Thug Finds A Unique Way To Promote 'Slime Season 3' At SXSW

(AllHipHop News) Young Thug's third addition to the Slime Season series is not yet released, but the Atlanta rapper had a very weird way of promoting his new mixtape. This week at SXSW, Thugga had the official date of Slime Season  written on a coffin during a live (but fake) funeral procession. The procession was caught by many bystanders and social media entities at the Austin festival, with a live band performing Thugga's single "Best Friend" right behind the coffin holders.

Although fans are still waiting on Slime Season 3, which was originally announced earlier this year, Young Thug released the mixtape I'm Up last month to hold fans over until SS3 drops.

Ludacris Speaks at Leadership Workshop to Over 200 Atlanta Youth!‏

Ludacris and The Ludacris Foundation spent the day giving back to a group of high school students at the historic Carrie Steele Pitts Life Learning Center in Atlanta Georgia. Through the use of his foundation the prolific superstar shared tips on how to be an effective leader and the power of giving back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The homie Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges spent the day working and inspiring a group of high school students from Banneker High School and Westlake High School. The purposeful event was all about inspiring a group of over 200 kids to take on the the mantle of leadership and understand the imporatnce of community service and giving back. The event entitled as "Leading From Within ... Leadership and Building Your Brand" was an awesome occasion for the young men and women who was in attendance.

 

 

 

 

 

The event was powered by The Ludacris Foundation and supported by his team and the good people over at Camp New Look. The kids had the opportunity to connect with Luda, his beautiful wife Eudoxiee Bridges, his lovely mother Mama Bridges, and the homie DC Young Fly. The kids were able to ask questions and get real answers. This event will help the kids to embrace leadership and a wonderful memory that will stick with them forever.

 

 

 

 

 

The message Ludacris wants the public to understand is as follows,

"We at the Ludacris Foundation realize that not every youth can visualize success. Not every young person believes that tomorrow can be better than today. I believe that every young person should have an opportunity to be the best that they can be. Our communities are hurting. Our systems need fixing. We can't wait on the government, institutions, social programs and policies alone to meet community needs.

We have to look within; it is in our hands, said Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges. That is why we do what we do at The Ludacris Foundation! Over the last 5 years 96,000 students in GA have dropped out of school. GA analytics show 70% of inmates are high school dropouts. That is evidence that student dropouts immediately become the incubator that feeds the prison system. A game changer is needed!! My foundation, The Ludacris Foundation, is launching a Leadership Development Program targeted at middle and high school students. Our initial focus is with 4 middle and high schools in GA. As we design implement a proven successful business model we will expand our efforts."

The event was truly a wonderful time and I thank The Ludacris Foundation for the opportunity to capture photos and glean a little inspiration!

(AllHipHop News) Rising Atlanta rapper Trentavious "Bankroll Fresh" White lost his life on March 4. The "Hot Boy" spitter was shot while at Street Execs Studios, and police found more than 50 shell casings at the scene.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, residents of the northwest Atlanta area where the studio is located are concerned about the violence that has taken place around Street Execs. Charley Jabaley, the studio's owner, faced criticism from the Underwood Hills Neighborhood Association in the past, and one Atlanta City councilman that lives in the neighborhood now wants the studio shut down.

"After giving them a second chance, now I'm on the side of the community where we were before in saying this type of activity cannot be in our neighborhoods," Councilman Andre Dickens told AJC.

There have been reports of a higher level of criminal activity in the area since Street Execs opened on Defoor Place. On average, the Atlanta police department received a 911 call every four days in the last three months of 2015. The complaints included shootings, assaults, car break-ins, and other alleged crimes.

Street Execs Studios has provided recording space for artists such as 2 Chainz, Travis Porter, Young Dolph, and Cap1.
