First, big ups to Jay Z!
The “Inspire Change” deal between Hov’s Roc Nation and the NFL are officially in the works! Before their ‘Inspire Change’ performances at Chicago’s Grant Park Thursday, Meek Mill and Rapsody along with Vic Mensa and Megan Trainor, will visit local organizations in Chicago.
Chicago is the first city to benefit from the “Inspire Change” social outreach program. The NFL, Roc Nation and the Player’s Coalition plan to donate $400,000 to the Better Boys Foundation Family Services and Crusher’s Club. These organizations picked by Roc Nation. The objective is to do this in every NFL city this year.
Meek Mill and Meghan Trainor will be in Chicago for a kick-off performance for the NFL’s regular season and while they’re there they will also visit Crusher’s Club, a group that helps Chicago kids “restore their lives and improve their neighborhoods.”
BBF or Better Boys Foundation will be visited by Vic Mensa and Rapsody, who are Roc Nation artists, the group provides education, employment, and youth services, as well as family health programs to more than 400 Chicago families.
