A Salute to Heroes of Hip Hop & Those Who Follow Celebrating Black History Month

NEW YORK, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- As Black History Month quickly comes and goes, it is necessary not only to pay tribute to the heroes of the past, but also to honor today's role models and the powerful influence they have on the future. In commemoration of this important time of year, Double XXposure and the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services (JBFCS) is sponsoring its first ever Salute to the Heroes of Hip Hop, a one-day event celebrating those individuals who have made significant contributions to the success of African Americans in the music industry.

This event will expose the talented youth of the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services to a star-studded team of panelists which include the legendary Big Daddy Kane, the illustrious DJ Premiere, and Power 105.1's extraordinary Ed Lover hosting the festivities. As an additional treat, Teflon (formerly of MOP), up and coming rap artist LA, and Mike Watts, a down-south success story, off the Double XXposure roster will be performing. Several participants will be rewarded with a one-on-one consultation/advisement session with the panelists to provide guidance on how to become an industry leader.

The Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services (JBFCS), one of the nation's largest and most respected nonprofit mental health and social service agencies, has been a trailblazer in treating social problems for more than 110 years.

Double XXposure, the well-renowned publicity and artist management firm, is responsible for creating superstar images for some of the industry's most notable celebrities, the likes of Mary J. Blige, Patra, Shabba Ranks, Changing Faces, Jade, Shai, The Emotions, Laura Branigan, Dru Hill, Father MC, Big Daddy Kane and many, many others. Often revered as the "Charm School" for rappers, teaching their artists the survival techniques of the business is what they are known for.

We are asking the press community to come out and share as we would like to have this event presented on your airwaves or newspaper pages. Transportation will be provided from the Double XXposure office, located at 1 West 34th Street, Suite 201, to Hawthorne, NY and back. Pease RSVP by February 20, 2006.
