Rapper Wale is helping put a young woman through Hampton University via a $25,000 scholarship.  Get the deets inside and see Keke Wyatt and Lil' Mo in concert at the Howard Theatre in Washington, DC and speaking on Trayvon Martin...

Lauren Pryor (shown atop with Wale at his "Gifted" release party in NYC) won a $25,000 "Gifted" scholarship from the rapper, which she'll use to continue her studies at Hampton University.  According to the Gazette-Journal, the scholarship came at a good time as Lauren almost considered leaving the university because of rising costs.

“Winning this scholarship was truly a blessing. Almost not returning to Hampton University in the fall because of expenses, I was exceedingly fortunate to receive this scholarship. It was truly a test of faith.”

And Lauren's win was a mixture of fate and good luck. During her interview, she described the process of calling into Norfolk hip-hop station 103 JAMZ and being the 25th caller:

"I was on my way to a friend’s home in Hampton. The station said to call between 4 and 5 p.m. I called four or five times. The line was always busy.  On about the 14th call I told myself to give it a rest. I was taking the phone from my face and had my thumb on the ‘end’ button when I heard a man say ‘hello.’  I didn’t believe it. He told me there were millions of calls and he only picked up the phone 14 times nationwide."

Congrats to Lauren. It's great to see Wale paying forward the success of "Gifted."

 

And in Washington, DC.......

LA's R&B Divas Lil' Mo (of LA) and KeKe Wyatt (of ATL) brought the house down at Howard Theatre last night.  And while many reality shows are full of chicks with no talent, Lil' Mo put them on blast saying "@keke_wyatt and iCan sing in real life yo!!!!"

Lil' Mo, who's in the running to become the breakout star of the LA cast, also posted a few bootylicious pics of her Derrick L Hughes-designed catsuit.  "All mine!!! No shots. No pads. Just let the lord use ya!! :-)"

Meanwhile, KeKe showed off her "bubbly" personality and treated the fans to a myriad of funny faces on stage.

Watch "Put It On Me" and "Superwoman":

 

 

Watch Keke dedicate "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" to Trayvon Martin and give a tearful performance:

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

Instead of you all focussing

Instead of you all focussing on the positive of Wale's generosity (except one other commenter), you all tear down two talented black women???? WOW!! Thank you wale for supporting a young black woman in continuing her education, not shaking her ass. If only more rappers would uplift these youth with providing education, our community and this world would be in a better place.

Lil Mo dear, if you are going

Lil Mo dear, if you are going to wear a skin tight body suit then you should wear under garments (i.e. thong) so that there is no panty line. Come on. You ought to know better. SMH.

I am so impressed by Wale'

I am so impressed by Wale' generosity. Rather than go throw money at strippers who claim be working the poles to finance a degree, he's doing what any self-respecting man with financial means should do. This is how you give back and uphold the integrity of the Black woman! Good look!
