(AllHipHop News) Rappers Young Jeezy, 2 Chainz and David Banner were among the hundreds of people who attended the “Strategy For Change” discussion earlier this week.
The town hall style discussion took place at the House of Hope church in Decatur.
Atlanta resident Jeezy didn’t mince his words on the panel, especially since Atlanta has been the scene of some of the largest protests following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile.
“We’re getting a chance to really see what these people have been doing to our people since the beginning,” Jeezy said.
Rapper 2 Chainz stressed financial literacy and entrepreneurship.
“The white bank is not going to give us a loan. We need to open up more black banks,” 2 Chainz told the audience.
In addition to the Hip-Hop stars, other panelists included Dr. Bernice King, Rickey Smiley and Lyfe Jennings.
