Downpayment Assistance for Detroiters Looking to Buy a Home
We’ve mentioned this program before, but it’s still out there and it has already helped so many Detroiters. Like, over 240 families. I’m talking about the Detroit Downpayment Assistance Program. It’s there to help low income earners who don’t currently own a home. People who may be able to afford monthly payments, but they can’t afford the downpayment. You can apply for up to $25,000. It doesn’t have to be used just as a down payment. You can either buy down the interest rate or decrease the amount that you owe on your actual mortgage or use it for the downpayment. There’s three simple steps. You got to get approval from one of their lenders. Find a house that you want to buy. And then apply for the program. You can do that and learn more right here… http://www.detroitdpa.org/
Missy Elliott Makes History With Rock Hall of Fame Induction
Missy Elliott made history Friday as the first female rapper to be inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. It’s so well deserved. Missy was inducted by Queen Latifah and in her acceptance speech she made sure to pay tribute to those who came before her. Including Pepa of Salt’n’Pepa, MC Lyte, Roxanne Shante, Monie Love, and of course Queen Latifah herself. Check out Missy’s full speech here… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eahd_KypDJ4&t=351s
Hip-Hop Pioneer DJ Kool Herc Inducted by LL Cool J
And you can’t represent hip-hop at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame without inducting DJ Kool Herc. And LL Cool J did the honors. LL said, “It’s a culture that changed my life, obviously, and millions and millions of people. And as I said before, when hip hop first started, there were no accountants or record companies that believed in it. But Herc believed in it. This is Hip-Hop’s 50th Anniversary, so it’s all the more appropriate that we are here to honor and recognize one of the founding fathers of hip-hop, DJ Kool Herc.” Glad to finally see Herc inducted as well.
