October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and has been celebrated by a variety of celebrities and institutions in small ways. Today, the top trending topic in the U.S. on Twitter is #NoBraDay in support of raising awareness of the deadly disease which is something we here at Hip-Hop Wired totally applaud.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge grossed more than $100 million last year and gave social media users some serious celebrity entertainment. So it was only inevitable that similar challenges spring up to serve a good cause.
#NoBraDay is meant to raise Breast Cancer Awareness. For example: young ladies should conduct self-exams in the mirror, while women well into their 40s need to be scheduling professional mammograms. But the collective Internets had something else in mind.
Obie Trice – New Day (Tribute to Eleanor Trice) Obie Trice lost his mother last month to breast cancer, and he dedicated a verse to her memory over Jay-Z and Kanye’s instrumental produced by The RZA.
