New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards, “promised 100 Cleveland high school students that he would pay for their college tuition—a total value of $1 million—if they maintained grade point averages at 2.5 or higher and performed 15 hours of community service.” The students held up their end of the bargain and now Edwards is living up to his!
“As the 2nd most hated man in Clev & a man of my word, today I will honor a promise made to 100 students in Cleveland years ago,” Edwards tweeted. “The last of my Advance 100 students will graduate from my program and head off to college on scholarships that I will provide them with. Guys, enjoy and embrace your new beginnings and remember your promise to me, to reach back & help someone else along the way.”
Big Pun‘s widow, Liza Rios spoke out yesterday (June 4) via her Facebook page about the song “Big Pun’s Back” by Joell Ortiz. The rapper intended for the song to be a tribute to his idol, but Rios doesn’t see it that way. She feels the song is disrespectful to Pun’s legacy. And to that of his son, Christopher Lee Rios aka Baby Pun. Who in her opinion is the rightful heir to Pun’s lyrical throne.
