Rapper/Actor/Philanthropist and the “KING OF THE SOUTH” TIP alongside Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed helped to make Thanksgiving Day 2016 a little brighter by donating turkeys and cheer to needy families. TiP greeted families in need as he and his entire family gave out turkeys, dinner, and other essentials to help these families kick off a   a happy holiday season. I have had the pleasure of taking pics of TIP and his entire family for the past seven years give back in abundance to the City of Atlanta.

Tony Burton who appeared as the trainer Tony “Duke” Evers in six Rocky films has passed away at the age of 78.

Burton’s sister, Lorett Kelly, has said that Burton was never officially diagnosed but had been suffering from poor health for over a year. It was also reported that Burton was too ill to see Creed, the recent spin off of Rocky that featured Michael B. Jordan as the lead role.

Carl Weathers who co-starred alongside Burton took to twitter to express his condolences tweeting, “Sad news. RIP Tony Burton. His intensity and talent helped make the Rocky movies successful.”

Burton was a Flint, Michigan native who was a professional boxer and football player before becoming an actor. Aside from the Rocky films he also made appearances in The Shining, Stir Crazy, NYPD Blue, The A-Team, and Twin Peaks.

He was also seen briefly in Creed in a flashback that used old stock footage of a previous Rocky film.

DSC_9071This weekend a group of influential adults in our community gathered together at my store Tees and Quotes to speak about the Black Lives Matter movement. This is the third event for “SPEAK ON IT” a community forum which allows healthy dialogue and debate for its guests.

DSC_9149The panelists that participated in the third event were Melinda Santiago of the S-Firm, a celebrity management firm; along with two of her clients Michael Keith of the Grammy Award Winning group 112, and Michael McFadden author of TRUISMS and radio personality. They were joined by Drew Peterson an actor and model currently starring in the Vampire Diaries; Toi Green of Green Room Entertainment – an A&R Music Veteran who is CEO of her own entertainment consulting firm; and Mocha of MocaMixx radio – a radio personality. For this event, a twenty-seven year Fulton County Detective William Sanders from the Fulton County Solicitors Generals Office shared insightful information on how we should response when approached by law enforcement to minimize unwarranted conflict.
