(AllHipHop News) On Wednesday, Roc Nation affiliated artists Rapsody and Vic Mensa took part in a mentoring program with BBF Family Services as an extension of the National Football League's Inspire Change initiative. The two rap stars were joined by NFL Hall of Famers, Chicago police officers, and local community leaders.
About 70 teenagers from the city, between the ages of 13-19, met with Rapsody, Mensa, officers from the 10th District, 8-time Pro Bowl safety Aeneas Williams, Super Bowl champion Orlando Pace, and former season tackle leader John Randle. The young people were able to ask them about life advice, their professional careers, and tips on planning for their futures.
Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx, the First Lady of Chicago Amy Eshleman, NFL Chief Operating Officer Maryann Turcke, Illinois House of Representatives deputy majority leader Jehan Gordon Booth, and others were also in attendance for the BBF Family Services event. The organization offers six program and service areas: Community Engagement, Education, Employment Services, Family Services, Health Equity, and Youth Services.
According to reports, Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill and Massachusetts singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor will visit the Crusher's Club today (August 5). Meek, Trainor, and Rapsody are also scheduled to perform a free "NFL Kickoff Experience" concert in Chicago's Grant Park later in the day.
