Taylor shared with 2UrbanGirls “I do these type of events all the time and this is a special one because it’s for the veterans of Inglewood.”
We asked how he gets Inglewood celebrities on board.
“I know both of the guys did stuff in the past and for Mack I know him from the wood and he wants to do this because this is his city and he wanted to give back.” said Taylor.
