Hassahn is no stranger to the power of words. Just as Lebron took his talents to South Beach, the Chicago native has taken his talents to Hollywood and beyond.

  1. Two questions: What does any of what Tyrese said have to do with Oprah and Obama–whom I think both do more for humanity than we might know–and what are YOU doing, Tyrese?

How about telling some of your fellow entertainers to bring it down on the booty music and all the songs about “Da Club” that these kids embrace as the truth?

We LIVE in these communities; we can’t do something about WHERE WE LIVE?
