Rhyme 4 Respect

Rhyme 4 Respect, originally uploaded by chantelle.

Went down to Deal Real on Thursday for the Rhyme4Respect launch. Met some new faces which was nice, including Ghetto's brother (special mention must go to Ghetto's super sweat inducing new trainers). Fiddy's got a new job, mentoring over at Live Magazine, which for those of you who don't know, is a magazine run by young people in south London. The idea is to get them back into education or find jobs after their placement but it's open to all, whatever the issues that have been (and still are) facing them. So I thought it would be a good team building excercise to take them into Soho. £40 worth of wine later I wondered whether this was responsible action for a teacher of sorts to have taken. I'm now hoping my drunker senior remembers she said I could expense it.

Now for those of you who are interested in Rhyme4Respect, it's a nationwide lyrics competition open to young people aged 12-21 years old. The competition is searching for inspiring lyrics that encourage self respect and respect for others on the theme of relationships & sex (ahhh so that's why Scorcher and Ghetto cut out before the spitting started). The competition is organised by Livity and its supporters include MTV Base, Galaxy FM and Foot Locker.
