The Miami Heat’s in-house Hip-Hop spinner DJ Irie has inked a deal with a Fort Lauderdale-based jeweler to create a new line of jewelry titled Peach Thru Music.” The DJ’s piece features a peace sign pendant with a white or black cord and comes with a matching bracelet with a matching charm. The cost of DJ Irie’s chain costs $395 and the proceeds will benefit the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Miami-Dade. “I’m honored to be the brand ambassador for the luxury jeweler, Levinson on Las Olas,” DJ Irie said revealing that a launch party for the event will take place on November 16t. “Mark & Robin Levinson have been exceptional friends over the years and now I am so excited that we have designed the “Peace thru Music” jewelry line for those who are stylish and believe in giving back.”Legendary Hip-Hop group Public Enemy has reached their fund raising goal through an innovative website, Sellaband. Public Enemy’s fans donated a total of $51,000 to record a new album. “We just received word that our fund raising campaign has completed. This is truly a great moment for us and we owe it all to our fans on Sellaband – our true ‘Believers’,” Public Enemy said in a statement. “It has been a long and winding road. We’ve had explosive starts, media attention, corporate troubles, media criticism, recalculations and finally resurgence. When it’s all said and done, the bottom line is that we never lost faith in ourselves, our fans and the future of fan funding as a model.” Public Enemy is now working on their untitled 11th album.
