Nicole Bell & Family

Hip Hop artists unite to honor the memory of the late Sean Bell:

Swizz Beatz, Talib Kweli, Cassidy, Drag-On, Maino and Styles P. have all come together to record the song ‘Stand Up (A Sean Bell Tribute).’ The track debuted on AllHipHop.com yesterday and will be available for purchase at the iTunes music store. The song will cost 99 cents and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Sean Bell Benefit Fund.

Truth be told, it’s refreshing to see artists unafraid to stand up and speak out against injustice. Click HERE to peep this new track.

    This is great-hip hop artists standing up for more than hoes and Hennessy. I’m gonna buy the track.

    RIP Sean Bell

  • I'm Just Me

    THIS IS WONDERFUL…IT REALLY IS. AND I AM GLAD THEY ARE TRYING TO HELP THIS FAMILY. I WISH MORE HIP HOP ARTISTS WOULD GET INVOLVED IN CAUSES AND MATTERS OF REAL SUBSTANCE INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT B*TCHES AND HOES AND ALL THE JEWELS THEY HAD. GOOD LOOK FOR THOSE INVOLVED.

    LOVE THIS PIC OF NICOLE AND THE KIDS TOO!

  • Brooklyn, Stand UP!

    Okay, maybe not, lol… Hey “I’m Just Me”, Happy Thursday!!! One more day till friday, woohoo!! I think Sean’s wife looks beautiful and his daughters are addorable… So sad that Sean will not be around to watch them grow up.

  • Brooklyn, Stand UP!

    Also, I am very happy to see these artists step up and try to help the family… Honestly though, where is Jay-Z, Puffy and 50 Cent in this? Their the ones who can afford to give 100% of the sales to procedes, not struggling artists like Swizz Beatz, Talib Kweli, Cassidy, Drag-On, Maino and Styles P. I guess we see who is rich with love and who is rich with greed.

    Meanwhile on the other side of the street…

    ~~

    “Six teens were found near Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park, where a crowd had gathered. It was not immediately clear whether they were wounded at the park or as they fled when gunfire erupted about 10:15 p.m. Monday, police said.

    The victims — between the ages of 13 and 18 — were found on several blocks along Lenox Avenue, from 125th Street to 128th Street. They had been shot in the chest, thigh, torso, abdomen or foot, police said. A 15-year-old girl had been grazed on the forehead. No arrests had been made”.

    ~~~

    It’s time to take life seriously at all points.

    It’s so upsetting for Police to shoot at an unarmed vehicle and by the grace of God only 1 man was killed that night.

    It’s is just as upsetting when we point the guns at eachother and get the same outcome.

    OUTRAGE AT ALL KILLINGS OF YOUNG BLACK MEN & WOMEN

    I wish they could have got more big name rappers (Jay-Z,50,The Game,TI)on the song b/c it would encourage more people to listen to it.
