Even though self-sustainability was always encouraged, residents are now starting to take part in this plan as handouts start to minimize due to lack of resources in the area. Families begin to overuse their 6×6 gardens to keep food on the table as well as finding different methods to stay self-sufficient in the household, preventing depletion of goods in the future.

Suge Knight says Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg were the spokespersons for Death Row Records, in 1996 video.
A video that had previously never been seen, shows Suge Knight, Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, and other artists signed to Death Row Records speaking on the importance of voting, during an appearance at the Brotherhood Crusade Rally on August 15, 1996.
Suge Knight, who was the CEO of Death Row Records at the time the video was recorded, introduced both Tupac and Snoop, referring to both artists as the spokespersons for the label.
“One thing I’d like to say, if it weren’t for the community it would be no Death Row Records,” Suge Knight said. “And more important than all that, if it weren’t for Snoop, Daz, Hammer, Tupac…it would be no me. So, I’m not here to try to get the limelight or be famous, nothing like that. I think my spokesperson for Death Row always will be—The guy who acts, raps. The other guy who raps and now he’s a model. I’d like to bring Tupac and Snoop up.”
Tupac, who was killed less than one month after his appearance at the rally, spoke on how fans who purchase albums from artists at Death Row should also represent voters.
“We just want y’all to know that at Death Row we appreciate everything y’all doing for us,” Tupac said. “My record sales, we got six million. Snoop got four million. Dogg Pound got three million. And we keep going. That means we represent that many votes. If we can represent that many votes, we gotta let these politicians be scared of us. That means anytime we drop something y’all gotta pick it up. Every time y’all call for us, we gon’ come.”
Following Pac’s speech, Snoop Dogg offered a few words of his own on voting. He spoke on representing one’s community through voting.
“It’s our voice that means something,” Snoop said. “It’s all on us. If we don’t speak ain’t nobody gonna speak for us. They gon’ speak against, so we got to speak up. As a rapper. As a brother from the community. Somebody who is intact with what y’all feel and with what y’all go through. I’m one of the main voices saying that I’m with getting out here, voting. And getting y’all to get out there and vote. And be about what you about cause y’all community is you.”
Howdy! For those of you out there who don’t know @WhoIsMissCash – I am she 🙂 My name is Colby Alaina Smith Hammond (C.A.S.H.) – so everyone calls me Cash! For those who know me, know I am apart of #Relentless and for those who don’t know, I’m also apart of the #YesJulzAgency.
Two weeks ago along side @Fefi_DoesIt & @YesJulz, we made over 475 lunch bags and gave them out to the homeless. We combined art, cars, and music by @AFlyGuy into an event to give back to the community. I’d like to Thank everyone who came out and helped us create/handout the lunch bags to those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Sometimes we forget that things aren’t as bad as we think they are. We have to take those moments to stop and enjoy what we have and those people in our lives that keep us going. We will be doing this event every month and it will only get bigger and better.
Below is video from the event recorded by www.The305.com and an excerpt from their article.

We were blessed to be a part of a project called Hashtag Lunchbag that took over Lou La Vie in Downtown Miami; to set up lunch bags for the less fortunate residents in Miami who are without homes. A goal was set for 300 bags to be completed and distributed, but that goal was surpassed with a total of 476 lunch bags completed and distributed.
Tons of people came out to show support with donations and with their time in putting together the lunch bags including model Iesha Marie, DJ A Fly Guy, Chris Paciello, Nick Ramirez (photographer), B Cruz (photographer) and so much more.
Press play to see how the day turned out.
