Good in the Hood: Free HIV Concert featuring some of the south’s hottest

May 30, 2007 at 6:34 pm (Doing good in the hood, Hip Hop, The South)

Allhiphop.com reports that Lil Wayne, Baby, UGK, and David Banner will be giving a free concert down in Houston Texas’s Reliant Arena on June 30th.  The concert, which is hosted by the Texstars Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to develop educational and leadership opportunities within the inner cities.  TO receive a ticket, concertgoers must attend a seminar on HIV and get themselves tested by the many staff members on site.  SO it may not seem much, but the AIDS epidemic is a big issue facing the African American community, as well as the rest of us, and it’s always good to see some steps being taken to combat it.  So if you live in the H-town, get yourself tested and check out a free concert.  Doesn’t seem like a bad idea.
