      The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network is continuing to roll on with is financial empowerment tour. On Saturday, April 14 the tour will stop in Detroit, Michigan at the Max M. Fisher Music Center.

      "One of the most urgent issues facing young adults today is the issue of having a firm financial foundation," Russell Simmons said. "Hip-hop is about transformation. The theme ‘Get Your Money Right,’ is not some rhetorical gesture. This is a real issue and we are talking about providing real solutions that attendees at the Hip-Hop Summit can use for the rest of their lives."

      Joining Simmons and co-chairman Ben Chavis will be Layzie Bone and Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n- Harmony, Mike Jones, Remy Ma, Raz-B, Belly, Trick Trick, Congresswoman Carolyn Kilpatrick (D- MI) with Free (formerly of 106 & Park) co-moderating the Summit with Chavis.

      "Detroit is one of the strongest hubs of hip-hop in the nation," declared Dr. Chavis. "Under the leadership of Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, Detroit is not only on the rebound, it is on the rebuild. We are rebuilding communities, families and key to this rebuilding is financial empowerment."

       Look for the tour to make five more stops including Toronto, Ontario on August 18; Greensboro, N.C., September 8; Washington, D.C., September 29; Miami, Fla., October 20; and Atlanta, Ga., November 3.
