Rapper Nelly is giving back to his hometown of St. Louis.

Last weekend, the “Hot in Herre” performer held a concert to benefit the Vatterott College Scholarship Fund, which helps high achieving, low-income students attend college. Now he’s taking his interest in Vatterott a step further.

He has partnered with the college to build a state-of-the-art recording studio for students interested in learning the music business. The studio will be constructed in the same building as his former Skybox restaurant, and will teach students professional recording and production skills.

“We’re not just building the most advanced recording studio St. Louis has ever seen, but we’re helping students learn recording and production the old fashioned way, hands on.” Nelly said.

Regarding the college in general, he also noted, “I see myself in the students of Vatterott. Just as I reached my goals, I want to help them reach theirs. I am happy to help those who are trying to help themselves.”

Missouri’s fanciest recording school is slated to open in October.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
