The Famine No One Is Talking About (HHSP) #Feed50k

#Feed50KThe Famine No One Is Talking About    On July 9, 2011, South Sudan officially gained its independence from Sudan. The young nation’s brief history has been a tumultuous one. Since December of 2013, South Sudan has been embroiled in a bitter civil war between the Dinka and Nuer ethnic groups. Thousands have already perished, and the violence persists despite an official cease-fire.     In addition to loss of life, approximately 1.1 million South Sudanese have been forced to flee from their homes to refugee camps, such as those in the Gambella region of western Ethiopia. These refugees have also been cut off from food and other vital resources. Livestock has been lost, and farmers have been unable to plant and harvest crops due to the ongoing fighting. In fact, The United Nations considers South Sudan’s current situation the “worst in the world” when it comes to food. By the end of the year, it is estimated that 235,000 child refugees could be facing malnourishment, and 50,000 of…

Manyang Reath Kher makes lasting impression in Pasadena

The last week of June 2014, Sudanese refugee Manyang Reath Kher visited Pasadena to spread awareness of his cause. He did interviews, spoke, and even donated a few gifts for some of the youth at Hathaway-Sycamores Transitional Living Program. Manyang was embraced at Pasadena City Hall and and has made a lasting impression on foster youth and local artists in the community.

It's when people hear his story. The part where all odds are against him. He gets bitten by a King Cobra snake. No hospitals nearby. Gets electrocuted. Survives. And makes it. What he has to say has become highly valued to ears young & old.

For those who may not know, Manyang Reath Kher was brought to Pasadena by local artist Bing Bing in attempt to spread awareness of the cause of the Sudanese people.The two individuals were connected by way of J. Allison, a PR and marketing agent in the Southeastern United States. Initially, the plan was for Mistah Wilson to produce an article interview for Manyang and publ…

...the BEST of the CHAMPIONS!!! mixtape by The Supreme General (Album Review)

The Best of the Champions mixtape hosted by DJ Supreme by the Supreme General is just
that! One of the first tracks "Steve Jobs" really brings back the East Coast rap style. Not only is he hosting this project but he is also rapping on it. The Best of the Champions mixtape was an interesting listen for me. Here is my review...

There is a track called "Simply the Best" where Supreme General goes in on a trap-rap style beat. He's making elites around him want to step their game up. I was really feeling "Vice Versa". It has a 2pac-style beat and the General's flow sticks to it like molasses on a tree. In this song, he's talking about what could have been if certain things in the industry and the world didn't happen the way they did. Then there is "Rolling Through My City" with my window down. This is a track with a low pitch, chopped & screwed sounding ambience. This is one of those tracks you listen to when you moving slow and…
