Last October The U.S. Hip Hop Coalition lost a vital member and contributor for the national movement that has been developing and building for several years nationally. Corvus Humphries aka Chrono was coming home from his 9-5 overnight manufacturing job and was caught in the shooting crossfire outside of the pink line station located in the Little Village community of Chicago.
Since then, the Humphries family and friends, along with support from local communities within Chicago, have been building up for todays announcement of The Corvus Humphries Foundation official launch which will carry the legacy of Corvus Humphries. To kick things off there will be a fundraiser to help raise money for the first two programs of the foundation. The first will carry his namesake, The Corvus Humphries Scholarship Fund, and the second being the Chicago Remembrance Registry.

Current Social Networking Status-Quo..
Like so many people today, you too have a large social network, from where you gather and share information within various networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, etc. Throughout this ebb & flow process, you personally consume and distribute various bits of content.
All of this content is directly and indirectly tied to products and services through meta-data within these platforms which are seen as sponsored ads, in some form or another. This type of work is traditionally performed by a company’s Brand Ambassador which would include some type of paid or unpaid position within that company.
