With President Obama’s presidential campaign coming towards an end, many people are already displeased with his departure. Last year on April 15th, Obama held a private meeting with recording artist, for the administration’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative that aimed to support programs that keep young people out of the criminal justice system.
A picture of all artist together released today and included Atlanta artist Ludacris.
Additional artist included Nicki Minaj, Pusha T, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Common, J. Cole, Alicia Keys, Chance the Rapper, Wale, Janelle Monae and DJ Khaled.
Since Obama began the My Brother’s Keeper initiative in February 2014, private institutions, foundations, businesses, community groups and more have contributed over $500 million in grants and $1 billion in financing toward the My Brother’s Keeper’s “six milestones” for boys and young men of color: Getting a healthy start, reading at grade level by the third grade, graduating from high school ready for college or career, completing postsecondary training, entering the workforce and keeping young adults on track and giving them second chances.
