For the first time in history, a groundbreaking homeless project and a powerful rock band have teamed up to change lives around the world.

When he opened his photography studio in downtown Redding, he was warned of the “homeless problem” in the area.

Despite hailing from Pittsburgh, the Taylor Gang rapper decided to name his track after a NY sports hero, although we can definitely see why.
