The program is titled “NXG Leaders,” which stands for “Next Generation of Leaders.” The idea for the town hall meeting is to have a positive impact on our youth, while inspiring them to be great leaders of tomorrow. The attendees of the meeting had the opportunity to participate in an open panel discussion with the artists from The Rap Game and Jermaine Dupri. The discussion was based on the 12 codes of leadership. The one-hour town hall meeting was free of charge, and they target to reach kids between the ages of 8 and 18. Michael Mauldin, CEO of Scream Nation, stated, “We are excited to be on the forefront of such a ground-breaking youth & family oriented movement. This type of tour and community involvement promotes the next generation of leaders and young stars and serves an audience that is often overlooked in the urban and pop music genres, and we are proud to be an integral part of this movement.” After the town hall meeting, Dupri and his team had to get ready for their concert later that night. Performers who accompanied Dupri on the tour, included Da Brat, Bow Wow, iAmDLOW, and The Rap Game’s top three season winners Miss Mulatto, Winner Mani, and NOVA. The concert is known to be family oriented with no profanity at all during the entire show. Other performers included King Roscoe, Deetranada, Nia Kay, Jl Prince of NY, Lil Key, Supa Peach, and 15-year old DJ sensation DJ Prince. The Rap Game debuted January 1st, 2015 on Lifetime, and is currently on hiatus, but season four is set to air this fall on Lifetime Fridays at 10PM/9C. In an interview with Jermaine Dupri, he answered two questions in regards to our youth. What advice do you have for our youth to stay motivated and encouraged? “Use different people as your motivation. There are so many people out there that probably have the same story as someone who is trying to do something but is also frustrated. There are a lot of people who are great examples for why you shouldn’t stop, and you don’t always have to know your mentor in order to be mentored.” How do you want this tour to impact our youth? “This tour was needed because there are so many kids out here that don’t have anybody that cares about who they are and what it is that they want to do or who they want to be…so I just provided nine people that young kids could pay attention to.” By: Chelsea Davis-Bibb, M.Ed.
