NEW YORK, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hip Hop is one big paradox filled with mysterious artists, boundless creativity, youthful exuberance, decadent lifestyles, chauvinistic ideals, uneducated thugs and impoverished subcultures. The ability to combine formal education with street smarts helped Lenny "The Barber" Hansen become an influential industry tastemaker and one of the biggest independent concert promoters in America.
Since hip hop has afforded him the opportunity to live his dreams as a successful entrepreneur, Lenny The Barber and Carefree Nation have partnered with Rick Ross and WhosThisBitch.com to give back. On May 11, 2012, the MMG Invasion Tour, featuring performances by Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Rae from WhosThisBitch.com, Future and Travis Porter, will be invading Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
With 2012 being an election year and so many crucial issues affecting the hip hop community, LTB Entertainment and friends are encouraging fans to pursue higher education and vote. Mongo Slade of The Viral Sparkz Agency quotes Lenny The Barber as saying, "Money doesn't make a brand; a brand makes money, and pursuing higher education is the best way to build your brand and become rich forever."
Since the early days when Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin created the iconic Def-Jam Records, hip hop has always been about higher education and entrepreneurship. WhosThisBitch.com (which promotes a mysterious young female artist and successful entrepreneur named Rae), Rick Ross's MMG (one of the hottest movements in music that recently brokered a huge deal with Reebok and signed R&B superstar Omarion), Lenny Hansen's LTB Entertainment and Carefree Nation are continuing the tradition of hip hop entrepreneurship.
The MMG Invasion Tour is partnering with major hip hop and entertainment websites to give out free tickets to several lucky students and aspiring entrepreneurs that would like to attend the concert in Atlantic City on May 11, 2012. Grand prize winners will receive VIP back stage passes to the event.
Lenny's LTB Entertainment is also donating proceeds from the concert to www.Big-Christmas.org, which helps hundreds of struggling families in the New Jersey area have a wonderful holiday season filled with family vibes, immaculate gifts, motivational books and deliciously wholesome food.
