Sistah Mom-preneur Offers Bitcoin Type Crypto-Currency To Boost Black Economic Empowerment

Nationwide - Technology veteran, visionnaire, and mompreneur Tavonia Evans has launched the very first ICO (Initial Coin Offering) for $Guap, a coin aimed at recycling wealth within the Black community. $Guap is a groundbreaking offer that breaks into the world of cryptocurrency with an ambitious mission to reward African-American consumers for supporting businesses that support them.

Traditionally, African-Americans account for a large chunk of spending power especially in regards to retail spending. However the spending that is often seen from African-Americans fails to support them locally in their community efforts, educationally, politically, and economically. African-Americans suffer greatly due to gentrification and often lose their economic value as quickly as it is gained. Additionally, it is often more affordable to spend with bigger brands who outcompete the local small business person, yet African-American women are one of the fastest growing markets of small business owners. $Guap believes it has the answer to circulating money back into this micro-economy and rewarding people for doing so.

Queens & NYC Based Rapper Araaz Gets The
Streets Lit With Inner Reflection

By Kamau Austin


A rap prodigy and product who hails from the three original epicenters of hip hop The Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, Araaz, is a complex rapper. He was introduced to his musical passion rap listening to his older sister and a friend when he was twelve years old. Araaz, who today still views her as a role model, was too shy then to join in with his sister and friends.

By 16 the emerging hip hop star was writing on a daily basis and starting "to develop his own style as an artist" recounts Araaz. Today he has certainly overcome his shyness and is becoming a thought provoking hip hop artist who looks to make people think about their life circumstances.  Araaz reflects more like a philosopher than a poet on his outlook on life...


"...My life is a challenge. The way the world is today and not feeding into negativity is a challenge because it is almost everywhere around us. Music is like medicine it is a way to release myself from the ways of the world."
