Rap Mogul Heads to London for Fund-Raiser

1 hour, 59 minutes ago

LONDON - Rap mogul Russell Simmons will act as the ambassador for a hip-hop and R&B festival being held in London to raise funds for a youth charity, event organizers said.

Simmons will help raise awareness of the May 8-9 Urban Music Festival organized by The Prince's Trust, a charity founded by Prince Charles to aid disadvantaged young people.

Artists scheduled to appear at the Earls Court indoor venue in London include Jay-Z, Alicia Keys (news), Lemar, Dizzee Rascal and Jamelia, The Prince's Trust said in a statement Tuesday. The festival also will feature MC battles, urban art and disc jockeys.

"Hip-hop culture is being embraced globally to transform lives in a positive way," said Simmons in a statement. "The Prince of Wales and The Prince's Trust are wise to invest their time and resources in creating an Urban Music Festival for the U.K."

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
