EYM 2008 Scholarship Gala: Brandon Fobbs & UGK's Bun B

While most of my press peers were covering Pre BET Awards events in Hollywood, I turned my camera to the Educating Young Mind's 10th Annual Scholarship Awards Gala at the Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles. Each year the organization honors those in entertainment that support the enrichment of youth by "giving kids the competitive edge" through their artistic efforts.

Before the event I spoke with celebrity presenter, Brandon Fobbs (Pride, The Wire), and award recipient, Bernard Freeman, aka "Bun B" of Texas rap group, UGK, about their individual efforts to empower and educate young minds.

Visit UGK's website here. To learn more about Bun B hit him up on myspace at And while there visit Brandon's page by clicking his name or go to, his personal website here.
