Crossroads Creative Group received a Knight Neighborhood Challenge grant for Sidewalk Stories. The program wants to find the worst sidewalks in the College Hill area and replace it with fresh, safe sidewalks that have a special Macon touch: a lyric or poem or quote or bit of history that relates to our creative city.
They need YOUR help! Click here to nominate a "sidewalk" or "story" (or BOTH!)
We talked to grammy-nominated hip hop artist B.o.B's official tour DJ Shawty Slim by email while they were away on tour. He says when he's home, in Downtown Macon, walking around and visiting Washington Park is one of the best things to do. Shawty Slim got his start spinning while in school at Fort Valley State University when an unpaid internship paid off and led to a first job with Macon's WIBB 97.9.
WMAZ: Tell us about the current tour. Where have you been? Shawty Slim: The current tour i'm on right now with B.o.B is for his new album, Strange Clouds, that dropped on May 1st. He's told us that he want to tour the world for two years, so I'm excited that I get to be apart of the efforts to make it happen successfully.
