Scream Tour Artist Support Snoop Dogg’s Youth
Diggy Simmons, headliner of the “Scream Tour: The Next
Generation” tour, has become the latest supporter of Snoop Dogg’s Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL).
Simmons, along with Jacob Latimore, surprised hundreds of youth at the SYFL benefit party in Chicago. The two spoke with the youth to encourage and inspire; in addition, the duo promised to support their activities, and return for a benefit concert.
Calvin Broadus, known as Snoop Dogg, introduced SYFL more than five years ago in 2005. More than 1,500 youths of the Los Angeles Compton, Crenshaw, and Lelmert Park area joined. Living in one of the roughest areas known to the African-American community, Snoop traveled teams to Texas, Florida, and Arizona. The league now serves in more than fives states including Nevada and Chicago.
With a mission to provide youth of change, no matter their ethnic background or economical standing, the program motivates the youth on character and discipline through football and cheerleading. There is no Compton versus Crenshaw beef within the youths since they all share common interest in learning the game they love.
