Entertainment Pioneer and Community Activist Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell Receives Key To The City Of Miami

Pioneering entertainer and free speech advocate Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell was honored with a Key to the City of Miami yesterday (October 16, 2018) in recognition of years of service to his hometown as an entrepreneur, philanthropist and community activist. The honor comes just weeks after the debut of the multifaceted legend’s latest venture, the critically acclaimed STARZ docu-series Warriors of Liberty City, has served to not only change the narrative around one of Miami’s toughest neighborhoods but also to spotlight Campbell‘s decades long dedication to his community. “Luther Campbell has established himself as a source of inspiration for Miami’s youth, empowering them to pursue a life guided by education and entrepreneurship,” said Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, who personally presented this most recent honor at Miami City Hall. Since his controversial entry into the public eye, taking on the Supreme Court in 1994 as a member of ground breaking rap group 2 Live Crew, Luther Campbell has reinvented himself time and again as a music executive, owner of the first truly independent hip hop label, sports analyst, columnist, author and political hopeful. But throughout these various professional evolutions, Campbell has been a consistent advocate for Miami’s underserved communities. That advocacy started nearly 30 years ago when Campbell founded the Liberty City Warriors Optimist Club, a youth sports programs that has become a cornerstone of the Liberty City community. While the Warriors are best known as a pipeline for young football players into the NFL – alumni of the program include Chad Johnson, Devonta Freeman and Teddy Bridgewater – the culture built around the organization goes far beyond the outlet it creates for the kids involved.  “At the height of my music career, I never promoted the program,” Campbelltold CBS Miami earlier this summer. “It was never about a photo op for me because I was one of these kids. I wanted this to happen organically and it took a long time for this to be exposed to the world. I wanted to show a different side of Liberty City. In this docu-series, we do something that’s never been done before. You are a fly on the wall and you get to see black men providing for their families and giving back. You’ll see African-American women giving back and a whole community coming together.” “I look at these stories like Blindside,” he further explained to Vice Sports ahead of the release of the docuseries, produced in partnership with Lebron James‘ Springhill Entertainment. “You never see documentaries or movies where a black man is taking care of his own kids,” Luke says. “You never hear the story of the community helping a family that needs help.” The last of six (6) episodes of Warriors of Liberty City airs this Sunday, October 21st on STARZ at 8pm EST. In addition to his service through the Liberty City Optimist Club, Campbell continues to use his platform as a columnist for the Miami New Times to speak out on socio-economic inequality in Miami and once famously ran for Mayor of Miami. Along with receiving the key to the City of Miami, Campbell was also previously honored with the key to the City of Miami Gardens.

#WordToTheWise: “Quality Over Quantity”


A lot of artists have 100 plus songs under their belt and still wonder why they haven’t got “on” yet.

So until you know that you’ve found your sound as an artist, don’t try to knock out as many songs as you can in one studio session. Find one record (at a time) that you love, and perfect it. It only takes one hit. ?

#WordToTheWise is quality over quantity!

#WordToTheWise: “Brand Yourself”


Brand yourself. Find ways to separate yourself from the rest. Have a personality that doesn’t distract from your music, but rather compliments it, and ultimately attracts more fans.

Ms. Cardi B is a prime example! People fell in love with Cardi’s unfiltered persona on TV and social media, and when people started to listen to her music, they were pleasantly surprised. Not only that, once Cardi started gaining some heavy clout, she NEVER changed — and people love her even more for that!

And what about Blac Youngsta?
His Instagram videos are beyond hilarious, and even if we don’t get what he’s talking about half the time, he makes us laugh, and we continue to go back to his Insta for more. Best believe, when he drops any posts about his music, that we’re here for that too!

#WordToTheWise is brand yourself as an ARTIST, your music and image goes hand and hand.
