This weeks show showed trailblazing in various forms, good and bad. Rapper Lil Jon helped to launch a school in Ghana over the weekend. The "Turn Down for What" hitmaker helped to fund Abomayaw D.A. Kindergarten with bosses at education organization Pencils of Promise, and on Saturday he celebrated by attending its opening. This is great to see entertainers giving back in this way! Rapper Gucci Mane is the face of the new campaign with footwear giant Reebok. Gucci will be featured in a new campaign supporting Reebok’s Workout Plus EG, which was originally launched in 1986. The sneakers are available exclusively at Jimmy Jazz and and will retail for $85. Gucci has really elevated himself since being released from jail and now married, congrats! Rihanna, the pride of her island home nation of Barbados, has used her stardom and platform to support worldwide humanitarian efforts. As a result, the Barbadian government will honor the pop star by renaming a road after her in the neighborhood she was raised in. Rihanna has been a great entertainer and humanitarian for the less fortunate. This is well deserved. The other day in Norway, undefeated boxing star Cecilia Braekhus was facing off with Sweden's Mikaela Lauren for their upcoming fight ... when Mikaela decided to show Cecilia some love (literally). Cecilia shoved her face in shock, but took the kiss like a champ -- laughing off the gesture and even thanking her future opponent for giving her some sugar. Yeah -- that's a pretty effective way of promoting a fight. We also had a special in-studio guest, Washington, DC native, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter, Kyonte. Check his interview out and find out everything he's up to @_kyonte_! As always, we have the hottest news and entertainment...we got you!
