GODFATHER OF HIP-HOP RUSSELL SIMMONS, HOTTEST HIP-HOP AND R&B STARS TAKING PART IN THE HIP-HOP SUMMIT ACTION NETWORK “GET YOUR MONEY RIGHT” FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT SUMMIT IN MIAMI, FL ON OCTOBER 20
The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) is bringing two events to Miami, FL this weekend, both of which will give a comprehensive education on fiscal responsibility.

WHAT: the Hip-Hop Summit’s “Get Your Money Right” Financial Empowerment International Tour draws hip-hop stars and financial experts to teach young people about financial literacy. For the past three years, hip-hop stars have come out around the country to give back to their communities. Sharing personal stories about the mistakes they’ve made with their own finances along the way, and emphasizing the difference between the bling fantasy of videos and the realities of life, has helped young people learn the importance of financial responsibility while they’re still young. With the recent housing market crash in the United States affecting the economy, jobs, student loans and consumer confidence, young people are eager to receive sound financial advice on how to best manage their money and navigate through this volatile economic environment.
