This Week on Street Soliders

I don't know if I mentioned this but I am currently working on HOT 97 (behind the scenes) with Street Soldiers with Lisa Evers on Sundays from 9-10pm. This week's show is about gun violence in New York City. I booked Harlem Mothers Save, a organization of women whose children's death were the result of gun violence, and Paul Martin, a former prosecuter, to be guests on the show. I tried to get a representive from the National Rifle Association ("NRA") to participate, but I received no response.

Unfortunately, gun-related crimes are increasing. I truly believe that this is due to the bad economy. People are hungry. I heard through the grapevine that there is a drug drought. I presume the drug trafficers cannot afford airplane fuel due to rising gas prices so drug dealers are now robbing people instead.

Next week's show is about the city of Paterson banning hip-hop clothing. In fact, I have to book the councilman who advocated the ban. I would love to hear is rationale.

My event planning company is organzing a birthday party for AJ Crimson and Estelle on August 18, 2008 at Origine. Stay tuned for the details.

Otherwise, I had a wonderful weekend. It feels good to be surrounded around positive people.

Hey DJ,
First up I love the Street Soldies show...That was my favorite Sunday Night show! I will listen again tonight!

Did you know that earlier this year Atlanta tried to do the same thing..I'm not sure if their ordinance passed but it was on the news quite a bit. Personally I would like them to ban the tight pants below the butt fad thats out now...not only is it stupid...but its disgusting. I really have no desie to see that mess!

Have fun at work tonight!!!!
