For more information about this event, please logon to: www.rickrosscharities.org
My issue with Rick Ross is that his REAL life story is actually worthy or interesting enough to
make albums about. The man CAME UP, does plenty for the community, owns several businesses, but for some reason that part of it never seems to make the album. In any event, Rick Ross BE OUT DAY is coming up and you need to be… Continue

Wow. The Indie Planet team went down to Greenville and had a great time. The event was broken down into several different gatherings and after parties throughout the weekend starting with a Meet and Greet at Club LaRoka on Pleasantburg and ending with a Niche Carolina Block Party on Sunday.
