Rising hip-hop artist and producer, J Noize, has teamed up once again to support Kids Off The Block, a charity dedicated to helping Chicago’s underprivileged youth excel. On June 12, Kids Off The Block (K.O.B) is hosting their 1st Annual Safe Summer BBQ located at Palmer Park in Chicago from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Safe Summer BBQ is promoting peace to local teenagers, along with presenting them possible job opportunities and safe summer programs within their community. The goal is, keeping “kids off the block” and inspiring them into positive directions, despite the unfortunate living conditions they may face.
“Everyone knows how hard it is for Chicago youth right now. So everything Diane and K.O.B. are putting together is very helpful to our children and our communities, “states J Noize. “I’m happy to be involved. It’s not just a neighborhood BBQ and performances. It’s also an event to unite us, while promoting stop the violence and showing the youth of our city the many ways we can fellowship with one another.” J Noize will be dishing up the delicious food for the kids and giving a special performance at the BBQ.
Last Thanksgiving J Noize supported Kids Off The Block for their “Feed The Teen Event,” where he served the holiday dinner to almost 1,000 neglected teenagers in the area. Sad story, but a true struggle for the local neighborhood kids as the Chicago teen killings and poverty has really effected the community. K.O.B’s Founder Diane Latiker touches on J Noize’s involvement stating, “We are grateful to J Noize for support of our mission to save a generation! He has shown that he is a music artist who not only cares, but believes that he can and will make a difference through his music in lives of the youth we service.”
The Soul Eclectic label’s artist, J Noize, has released two new singles simultaneously; “Every Place I Go” featuring Heat Fam’s rappers Yung Nef and D-illa, plus, “Find Him” a soulful track featuring well-known singer/songwriter and actress Terry Dexter. Both tracks are from J Noize’s debut album Young, Gifted & Black (Y.G.B) set to release later this year.
