Did this hip-hop story get love from mainstream media?

No it didn’t, of course – because it’s a positive one.

According to Allhiphop.com, David Banner sent 80 children from the Stewpot Neighborhood Children’s program in Jackson, Mississippi on an all expense paid trip to Six Flags in Georgia last Friday.

Banner provided a bus, food, t-shirts and admission to the park on the annual excursion, which he’s been sponsoring since 2005, with the intention of exposing the youth to different environments.

Hip-hop gets the blame for so much in society, so why doesn’t it get credit when it’s due?

    Its true, why dont they give full props to hip-hop heads doing good, food for thought, hip-hop is not all bad, its really becoming monotonous and boring that this specific music genre and everyone thats part of it is catogorised as baddies, there are many other artist from different genres’ that are not all that wonderfull, you dont see them doing stuff like that, and when they do the whole world knows or HAS to know bout it. 3rd eye, I respect your opinion bout books & a school, its a good idea, but at least the man is doing sumthing, give him that much.

    I commend him on givin them kids an experience that they’ll never forget. Not all children can afford to go to Six Flags cause those ticket prices are high lets be real about it. And to seeingtruthwitur3rdeye, he didnt have to take those kids anywhere and its plenty of books and schools out there for those kids. Everybody ain’t Oprah and everybody is not going to build a school. For him to help fund a school yes but to build one get real its too many schools across the nation for that.
