LL Cool J, Fabolous Host WorldStar Hip Hop Back-To-School Giveaway
LL Cool J and Fabolous will be on hand as hosts when WorldStar Hip Hop Foundation hands out 1,600 backpacks at its third annual Back-To-School Backpack Giveaway on Aug. 30. As in previous years, the event will take place at the Colosseum Mall in Jamaica, Queens.
Legendary MC Erick Sermon and teen MC Jayla Marie will join the rappers as special guests during the giveaway, which to date has equipped 2,500 underprivileged children with backpacks and essential school supplies.
Rounding out the giveaway this year: a host of prizes ranging from iPads and eReaders to gift cards from Barnes & Noble, Target and Amazon.
WorldStar Hip Hop Foundation is the charitable division of popular online entertainment portal WorldStarHipHop.com, founded by CEO Leo “Q” O’Denat. The Jamaica, Queens native, who never finished school himself, established the foundation to underscore the importance of education as a tool for success. In addition to LL Cool J, previous guests at the annual giveaway include French Montana and Jim Jones.
