Method Man Rips Instagram

The “Power Book II: Ghost” star went to his Instagram page to let loose some steam. The hip-hop heavyweight lit up the Internet with frustrations for getting slammed by IG for his post.

“First time this ever happened!! Should I let them know the boxes were empty..? Or that this is my “LEGAL” black owned business or should I make my page private because obviously someone’s playing post police..? Goofy a** Instagram goons! Smh y’all go visit @ticalofficial for more deets!!” -Method Man

Mef took things even further to acknowledge the success and how much cannabis has flourished despite censorship.

“People sellin whole pieces of ass on IG and y’all blow the whistle on a lil tree post. FOH! (See Previous post) y’all need your priorities checked or ya a**es kicked! Ps: THE PLANT IS STILL WINNING… witcha goofy a**es” -Method Man

Ashanti Supports Black-Owned Businesses

In the near future, singer Ashanti will use droppTV to allow fans to actually support select businesses trying to survive through the COVID-19 pandemic by having in-video features to make purchases. The online platform is ultimately a version of YouTube and Amazon combined.

Ashanti will be releasing the music video for her upcoming single “Missing You 11:11” on droppTV. Multiple Black-owned shops will be featured throughout the video, highlighting their history and importance to the community as well as showcasing their goods and services which can be purchased directly within the video thanks to droppTV’s proprietary AI/machine learning platform. Viewers can watch and buy on any device – smart phone, tablet or desktop – and they can also pledge financial support in the form of a donation.

In July 2020, Ashanti hinted at her intent to highlight Black-owned businesses in an upcoming music video.

“Tag your favorite Black Owned Business to be featured in my new Video! VERY SIMPLE GO TO www.Missingyou1111.com WRITE A FEW DETAILS ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT ALONG WITH YOUR INFO AND THAT GOES DIRECTLY TO MY COMPANY EMAIL! WE WILL BE GOING THRU ALL EMAILS STARTING AT 10AM TOMORROW!!! #Missingyou11:11 July 15th NYC ❤️” -Ashanti’s Instagram

Small Businesses In Danger

According to a recent report, nearly half of Black small businesses could run out of money in the coming weeks. Ultimately, more legislative support is needed to help companies survive in an economy still adjusting to completely shutting down in March because of the COVID-19 impact.

Small businesses have largely exhausted their federal funding and are starting to lay off workers, with many worrying about having to shut their doors for good, according to a new survey from Goldman Sachs provided exclusively to Axios. Business still has not returned to normal, six months after the coronavirus pandemic first appeared in U.S. But small firms say the money they received from the Paycheck Protection Program has run dry. Data show Black-owned businesses face an even steeper climb. 43% say they their business’s cash reserves will be depleted by year end if Congress does not act in September, compared to 30% of respondents overall. 31% say less than a quarter of their pre-COVID revenue has returned.

Hip-Hop Supports Black-Owned

Over the past few months, various high-profile celebrities have shared support for Black-owned operations. Everyone from West Coast rapper YG and Chicago’s Dreezy to models like Lori Harvey have encouraged people to support Black.

“4HUNNID POP UP, JULY 2020 – Proceeds will be going towards supporting black owned businesses that were effected during these times ❤️❤️❤️❤️ – @4hunnid” -YG’s Instagram

Black-owned businesses are currently in danger unless the legislature gets involved.

“Tag your business and tell me what you do. I’ll be online shopping all day today! ❤️ BLACK EXCELLENCE 🙏🏾” -Dreezy’s Instagram
