While kicking off a 50 city Music for Aids Tour, Needle & Thread Entertainment L.L.C will be donating proceeds to various organizations in each city on the tour.

(PRWEB) May 1, 2005 -- In an effort to rally supporters for community organizations combating Aids, homelessness, under-privileged or at-risk youth, the sound of music has taken the driver's seat.

Rap artist GHETTOFIED while promoting the single “Get Good” off of their second album “Classic” have taken on a more important roll than just entertaining. Victor Barnett; Director and founder of The Running Rebels Community Organization 1300A W. Fond du lac Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53205 said “I Know that rap has a negative image but I don’t buy into that because everybody who rap is not negative. We are currently helping young people find jobs and other things like shelter. We also provide snacks for the youth who may have not eaten. This and other contribution is needed to help with the costs and to keep our staff functioning. I don’t see anything wrong with a person giving back to the community.”

The benefit tour which will include opening acts such as Maradrama, Baby Don and specially invited acts Twista and D 12 starts off in Milwaukee, WI on May 9th 2005 will wrap up around June 30th ending in Minneapolis, MN. Artist Paperwork, one-half of the group states, “I feel it is my responsibility to try to right some of the wrongs I have witnessed or may have perpetuated in my lifetime.”

The new album which includes guest appearances by Universal recording artist Baby Dru and Tommy Boy recording artist Coo Coo Cal, have some of the same harsh lyrics many say glorify and condone violence, mistreatment of women and the very same criminal element that they speak out against. “In most cases a captive audience is a more receptive audience,” Said Key-money the other half of the duo. “We don’t feel that the means of justifying an end is as important as the end itself, at the end of the day what can anyone say they’ve done to help someone or help change the world.” Other programs set to receive contributions for this area are The New Community Shelter, Inc 301 Mathers Street Green Bay, WI and the Salvation Army 130 E. North Street Appleton, WI. Even with all the steam from dedicated participants sponsors are still needed.

Needle & Thread Entertainment, LLC is a non-profit organization with the primary focus of performing arts. The company was founded in 2003 by Rio Johnson; a union advocate of disc jockeys across America. The company uses its proceeds to improve the economic Position of lower class neighborhoods by providing job opportunities.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Ghettofied is one of those groups that you know is destined for superstardom. Their stage presence, interaction with fans and the community, quality of the songs on this album, charisma, and overall approachability will make them a rare commodity in the industry. KEY-MONEY has been noted for his signature million dollar voice reminiscing of the late great EAZY-E (R.I.P.). His vivid lyrics of hoodlyfe has been described to a definitive point far less seen these last few years in hip-hop. The other half of the group PAPERWORK has a conceited pitch to the lyrics he displays. You can tell by the sarcasm in his voice and the non-chalant delivery he has that his career is bound to see the hieghts of a JAY-Z or a T.I.
