MTV2 Airs Boost Mobile RockCorps Concert This Sunday October 2, 2005; Hosted by Lil Jon and Nick Cannon; Featuring the Who's Who in Hip Hop

Kanye West, T.I., Fat Joe, Young Jeezy, Paul Wall, Slim Thug, Fabolous, Faith and More

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 29, 2005--Five Thousand Boost Mobile RockCorps Volunteers Attended a Free Concert on September 24 at Radio City Music Hall as Reward for Contributing Four Hours of Community Service

WHO: Boost Mobile RockCorps - an "around the way revolution" that
is empowering young adults with the motivation and resources
necessary to create immediate, long-lasting improvements to
communities in need.

WHAT: MTV2 will air one of the hottest and biggest hip hop
concerts of the year featuring artists from various regions
and genres who came out for the cause of "Service, Pride,
Music, and Respect." Highlights include charismatic
alternative rock drummer Travis Barker opening the show with
DJ AM and Kanye West joining Paul Wall on stage to perform his
hit "Gold Digger." The audience swayed back and forth and sang
along to every performance - from "Lean Back" by Fat Joe
featuring Remy Ma and the Terror Squad to T.I. who closed the
show with his hits "Bring Em Out" and "U Don't Know Me." All
the artists came together to celebrate and give thanks to the
Boost Mobile RockCorps volunteers who put in 20,000 combined
hours of community service to earn tickets to the show.

This summer Boost Mobile RockCorps challenged the notion of
America's so-called "age of declining volunteerism" and young
people around the nation answered the call. Partnering with
non-profit agencies to organize volunteer projects in major
metropolitan areas around the U.S., Boost Mobile RockCorps
launched June 25 in Los Angeles and has influenced positive
change in Atlanta, Chicago, Minneapolis and Washington, D.C.
throughout the summer. As a reward for contributing four hours
of community service work and in celebration of the youth
volunteerism movement, 5,000 Boost Mobile RockCorps volunteers
earned tickets to this landmark Radio City Music Hall event.

WHEN: Show airs this Sunday, October 2 at 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. EST.
The show will air again October 3 at 3 p.m. EST and October 4
at 1:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. EST. Check local listings and for
