THE WORD | POLO G LAUNCHES NEW AAU BASKETBALL TEAM FOR INNER CITY YOUTH OF CHICAGO

During a recent visit to his old neighborhood near the North Side of Chicago, Rapper Polo G was alerted by the local youth that they didn’t have an official competitive basketball or AAU team. He expressed, “This messed me up a little bit because I know comin up we at least had this one opportunity, and without these types of programs it’
s only trouble out there.”

With the help of his mother and manager Stacia Mac, and a hand full of local community leaders, the Columbia Recording Artist was able to not only host tryouts but successfully create a competitive youth team where coaches will develop talent to actively compete and travel during the summer months. Players will also be provided transportation to and from practices in additional to hot meals and a safe community environment to hone in on their skills. “Our ultimate goal is to develop the skills of our talent while attracting college scouts and creating scholarship opportunities for our boys” says Stacia Mac.

Polo G, who rapidly rose to fame with his Top 10 Billboard Charting hit “Pop Out”, has made it a point to be involved in his community as much as possible between touring and recording. This year alone he paid the graduating class fee’s at Chicago’s Manierre Elementary School and is slated to hold a coat drive in the same neighborhood. The Chicago rapper feels he is just getting started as he pledges to continue to invest in the neighborhood that raised him and looks forward to developing his new youth team.  For more information visit http://polocapalot.com
