Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Let’s Celebrate Life with Hip Hop in Pink 2011

14 Oct

MERDJ.com in conjunction with E Media’s Women of Power Networking Happy Hour will be hosting the 2nd Annual “Hip Hop in Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention showcase. The event will be held at one of Baltimore’s premiere, nightlife venues, Eden’s Lounge, 15 W. Eager Street Baltimore, MD on Thursday, October 27, 2011 from 6pm-12am. The event will be hosted by Magic 95.9’s Civ Jones and music powered by 92Q Rap Attack’s Angel Baby featuring performances by: Carmen Cameron, Si-Notes, Ashley Moore, Tiara LaNiece, TT the Artist, Mzery Loves Company and exclusive all female Hip Hop cypher.

Hip Hop in Pink is an event that raises awareness and donations for organizations that promote breast care health. The movement was founded on the memories of family members and friends who have either been diagnosed or succumbed to the disease of breast cancer. Not wanting anymore premature deaths or diagnosis’s, the event promotes the principles of awareness and prevention by using Hip Hop culture as its vehicle.

Door price for this event is a $10.00 donation fee. Proceeds made from the event will be donated to the Tigerlily Foundation that aims to educate, advocate for, empower and provide hands-on services that support young women (15-40 years old), before, during and after breast cancer detection.

The event is geared towards the 21-40 year old demographic because learning about breast care health, and benefits of early detection at this age, can save lives. By teaching young people to be healthy and aware of their bodies, they are more likely to follow the recommendations regarding clinical exams, mammograms and regular doctor check-ups. Knowing the facts, taking action and early detection are the single most important factors in surviving a breast cancer diagnosis.

Media interested in covering the event, and those interested in donating women-friendly items for inclusion in our Hip Hop in Pink gift bags can email Singleton Newman at politicwithpermiss[at]gmail. com or Civ Jones at merdjmediagroup[at]gmail. com. 

Hip Hop In Pink is brought to you by MERDJ.com, E Media, Moody Creations, Women of Power,  New Hope Management and Politic With Permiss.

Nexus! An Incredible Event-Task Force Marketing Networking Party

19 Aug

Source: http://www.Merdj.com

untitledLast night I stop the Chariot down at Frank Johnson’s launch of Nexus/ Industry networking party at Milan. The event was LIVE and filled with power players from within the Baltimore Arts, Culture and Entertainment scene. It was everything with-out the usual bull shit that is associated with the Baltimore. You know unnecessary crab in barrel mentality that seems to be synonymous with “Baltimore”… Naw none of that was there.  Instead the event was laced with individuals from diverse entrepreneurial efforts whose mission is to see Baltimore become the professional entertainment district it can be.


The dance floor stayed packed with locals doing the Baltimore Two Step. A stylish ass dance that Baltimore emcee Los created.  Not only was the music live but the people were too. Everybody genuinely seemed to be having a good time. I was greeted with kisses, and hugs in which I attribute to positive atmosphere that The Task Force Marketing team created.


The networking was serious. Everybody came out Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, mayor hopeful Catherine Pugh, Lil Mo, The Hip Hop Chef Tye, Caddy Da Don, Tony Austin, Bossman, Poet, Thea Washingtion, J Claxton, Los, Mottz, Swen, Paula Campbell, Shawn Caesar, DJ DNA, Tracy Stanford, Don Trunk, Kariz, C-Clear,  Kai Sincere, Bilal, Shani Elliote, Shadeed, Sonjay, Fame of Streetsmart Magazine, Permiss, Singelton, Tim Curry, Dwayne and a host of bloggers and other Social Media Networks. From music to politics the who’s ,who’s was definitely in the building.


This event made a great impact on the Baltimore Night scene. It definitely set standards on what promoters, media outlets, and industry professionals should strive for. The purpose of this event was to connect and build relationship so that the DMV will be a strong business community. I believe that vision was realized. Starting with home first the Task Force Marketing and New Media Group was able to unify those who believe in the Baltimore Scene. Standing ovation toFrank Johnson and his whole team.
