Rap Heroes Talk Smart Money at A&T

Those new Nikes are fresh, but will they rock your retirement like a money market account?

Rap artists and fans debated the finer points of money management this weekend at a seminar at North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro. The event was sponsored by the Hip-Hop Action Network, led by music industry heavyweight Russell Simmons.

Life imitates art. As soon as I saw this article, I thought of the Chappelle Show sketch. (The second of two on the link; not safe for work.) I wonder if anyone brought up the spoof at the seminar. Or would that be when keepin’ it real goes wrong?

Also, does anyone use the term “fresh” anymore?
