(BlackPressRadio.net) – In an effort to bring awareness to the launch of TBSN: The Black Sportz Network, DC Livers has announced BLACKTOBER, a month long celebration to honor the work of Black men in hip hop.
“I was so tired of writing the obituaries of rappers and hip hop stars like DMX, Black Robb and Biz Markie so I wanted to take a moment to show respects to Black men in hip hop,” said Livers a serial technology entrepreneur who founded TBSN during the Global Pandemic. TBSN was made official at the 2021 NBA Finals during Game 5 in Phoenix, AZ. “While we still have these men who contributed so much to The Culture, I had to do this because younger generations don’t always know the history of hip hop. It was important to TBSN – which merges hip hop and sports – to do this because in the lockerooms of the sports I cover I hear the music but it never seems to reach the kids. I wanted to make sure that it did,” said Livers.
Buggin’ Out Weekend will take place in Los Angeles, CA on October 1-4, 2021 by paying tributes to other Black athletes including Dodgers star MookieBetts, witnessing LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony and others as the Lakers take on The Brooklyn Nets as well as football games including a Monday Night Football game with the Chargers vs. Raiders.
