Ludacris, Carmelo Anthony & Rob Dyrdek to Face Off in Tag Signature Series Charity Challenge

Thursday, October 8th, 2009


As you know, Ludacris, Carmelo Anthony and Rob Dyrdek have teamed up with Tag Body Spray to release a Signature Series of branded scents, each of which bears the name and likeness of its respective celebrity co-signer. To help kick off and promote the new line, the rapper and two athletes have announced the Tag Signature Series Charity Challenge. For the challenge, Luda, Melo and Rob have each chosen a charitable organization to represent, and each charity will receive 10% of the net sales from the sale of their respective body sprays. Whichever celeb sells the most body spray between now and the end of the contest, (November 2nd), will receive an additional $25,000 donation for their charity.

Here’s some info on the three organizations that the guys have chosen:

Ludacris will campaign on behalf of The Ludacris Foundation, an Atlanta-based organization that empowers children to take control of their own destiny; Carmelo will represent The Carmelo Anthony Foundation, a national organization dedicated to providing opportunities for underprivileged kids; and Rob will compete on behalf of The Skate Plaza Foundation, an organization that builds skate parks in developing communities.

So yeah, you can basically spend a few bucks to smell good, and do something worthwhile at the same time.

Says Luda: “The TAG Signature Series Charity Challenge is a great opportunity to help The Ludacris Foundation, so I’m excited to unite everyone in the ludaverse to take down Melo and Rob.”

Video: Pharrell Williams Talks Street Dreams

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Pharrell speaks to Nino Scalia, co-writer of Street Dreams, about making the song “Hoppin’ Over Fences” for the movie’s soundtrack after Rob Dyrdek (of Rob & Big) approached him for it. Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Derrick Cabrera, like all skateboarders, dreams of being sponsored one day. He has all the talent in the world to make it happen but some major roadblocks to overcome before he can make the dream a reality. He is receiving pressure from all sides, his parents are stressing him because he is failing in school, his girlfriend thinks he is a loser, his best friend has become his rival because he is better than him. Things come to a head after Derrick gets arrested and a fight ensues with his father resulting in him running away from home. He does the only thing he knows how to do and opts to follow his dream to the Tampa Am contest, one of the only ways an unknown skater can get noticed.

You’ll find everything you need to know about the movie here. Street Dreams hits theaters on the West Coast on June 12th and on the East Coast on June 19th.
