Lil Wayne Is Reportedly Joining The Hip-Hop Awareness Organization Zulu Nation
It looks like Lil Wayne might be pledging his allegiance to a good cause. According to a tweet from Q-Tip, the New Orleans rapper has been inducted into international hip-hop awareness organization, the Universal Zulu Nation.
The Zulu Nation was founded by legendary MC Afrika Bambaataa back in 1970s, when former gang members began doing their part to spearhead cultural programs for the youth. The organization was furthered by artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Public Enemy, KRS-One and more in the 1980s.
Q-Tip's announcement came on the heels of the recent events in Ferguson, with a grand jury deciding not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Tip was seen participating in protests in Times Square following the decision.
