“I love my community,” said Diddy during the launch of his first charter school in NYC. “I love New York I love Harlem and it’s great to be able to do something for the community.” Teaming up with Steve Perry, the founder of Connecticut’s Capital Preparatory charter schools, Puff is hoping to make an impact on the lives of young students.

Capital Preparatory Harlem, located on 104th on 5th ave, is the only new charter school opening in the borough this year. This project was years in the making for Diddy and Perry. “You can have a dream to be a doctor, a rapper, an engineer,” Diddy continued. “After you have that dream you have to actually open your eyes and handle the reality of what it’s going to take to achieve that dream.”

The school has 176 sixth and seventh graders now and plans to expand a grade a year until it is a sixth through twelfth grade school with 700 students.

In the wake of last week’s tragic events, tension and mistrust between the black community and police force feel like they’re at an all-time high across the country right now. However, even The Game’s 13-year-old son, Harlem Taylor, can see how cops should be properly protecting and serving their communities, which is why he’s launched a GoFundMe page to help support the efforts of “good cop” Tommy Norman.

macklemore-obama-1

Macklemore paid a visit to The White House on Thursday (May. 12), sitting down with President Barack Obama for a candid conversation on opioid abuse in the United States. The Grammy Award-winning rapper joined the POTUS in his weekly address released this weekend, bringing awareness to the epidemic and offering solutions such as working with local law enforcement and citing a provision in Obamacare that requires health care coverage include treatment.

I’m here with President Obama because I take this personally,” says Macklemore during the address. “I abused prescription drugs and battled addiction. If I hadn’t gotten the help I needed when I needed it, I might not be here today.”

The PSA comes months after the Obama administration proposed $1.1 billion to be put aside for “new mandatory funding over two years to expand access to treatment for prescription drug abuse and heroin use.” Macklemore’s sit down with Obama is a part of a one-hour documentary set to air this summer on MTV.

mac miller donald trump nightly show

He may have gone platinum with his hit single “Donald Trump” back in 2011, but Mac Miller isn’t riding for Trump any longer. The two have butted heads in the past, most notably when Trump threatened to sue Mac for using his name in said song, despite previously praising the record and calling him “the new Eminem” (ugh). Then, in December 2015, Mac tweeted, “Just please don’t elect this motherfucker man.”
