The littlest Lyon left Cookie and Lucious home to command the stage in his hometown of Philly Sunday for
Cookie’s Cookout third annual Anti-Defamation League fundraiser–Walk Against Hate.
Bryshere Gray’s (aka Hakeem Lyon on FOX’s Empire) performance of old and new jams capped off a family-friendly day for the city of brotherly love.
The $25 registration fee for Walk Against Hate bought more than Bryshere turnin’ up onstage. In addition to the 2 mile walk around the Philly Navy Yard, there was a Diversity Expo with 50 non-profits including LGBTQ espousing tolerance and acceptance. Also face painting and magic show for the kiddies.
But nothing beats hearing “Drip Drop” live.
ADL’s Walk Against Hate, aiming to “protect the civil rights of all” raised $381,395 for their mission, research and programs like No Place for Hate, the A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute and Bearing Witness program.. There is still time to donate here.

Prince better not leave his afro pick home for this one.

Dust off that
purple grey suit because Prince is coming to you, Bmore.
The “Purple Rain” singer announced a Rally 4 Peace concert in Baltimore this Mother’s Day weekend. Tickets are on sale now. But, if you’re reading this…it’s probably too late.
The impromptu concert coincides with Prince’s unreleased song for Baltimore. Still don’t have a release date on that. Maybe Prince will perform the highly-anticipated debut onstage (pretty puh-leeezzzeee).
According to CNN, concert organizers say the performance is a “symbolic message of our shared humanity and love for one another.”
Lucky attendees are urged to wear gray, not the usual purple, to commemorate all those lost to violence. Including Freddie Gray that died from spinal injuries during police custody.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Baltimore youth charities.
Way to keep Baltimore Uprising in the news, Prince.
