Politini Recap: ‘Celebritics’ 101

#Celebritics, Nas, Belafonte, Jay-Z
As the Belafonte/Jay-Z beef continues we can’t help but ask ourselves does Harry Belafonte have a point? We may not agree with the way he chose to address both Beyonce and Jay-Z’s philanthropy– but once celebrities reach a certain level of fame, do they have a social responsibility to use their cash and cache to shift culture?

This week on #Politini we chatted with Lamell McMorris CEO of Perennial Sports and Entertainment to get his thoughts on #celebritics–the need for a mash-up between celebrity and politics. lamell-mcmorris1-1

We also raised our glasses to Risikat Okedeyi a cultural architect and founder of Lil So So Productions for ‘Bringing the FIRE’. Risikat-Okedeyi1
