I mean the IE is just saturated with them. This week I want to show love to Daniel Jackson who is known as “AP the Great.” This rapper/songwriter wears many hats. Currently, he is signed to the record label Most Wanted Records, an independent label based out of San Bernardino.

AP the Great has been rapping since the age 15, and has been inspired by God, family, and a never-ending hunger for greatness. This artist is making his way in the industry.  Also having an eye for fashion, AP is the CEO of BUYDJdesigns, an upcoming new fashion line. His current EP project, “Lost in my Thoughts”, can be found on iTunes and on the group mixtape “World domination”, which can be found on MostWantedRecords.com.

AP is working on a new album which is set to release in June of this year. It will feature his first single set to be released in February of this year. Don’t sleep on the artist, AP The Great! I think his music is GREAT! Follow him on Instagram @mostwantedap and Twitter @mostwantedap. Until next week and please support Indie Music! L’s Up!

Riverside County seeks volunteers to help count homeless population on Jan. 28

stock-footage-homeless-family-shot-in-riverside-california-in-january-ofVolunteers are needed to participate in a survey of homeless people in cities and communities throughout Riverside County on January 28.

The Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) Homeless Programs Unit has commissioned the bi-annual homeless counts since 2005, when a count and survey was first required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This year, DPSS will organize the event using volunteers from the community, county agencies and nonprofit organizations that serve the homeless population.

The federally mandated count takes place every year in late January. In January 2014, DPSS received funding through the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs to do a special count of homeless veterans.

DPSS is recruiting about 400 volunteers at community meetings countywide.  Prospective volunteers can register and receive information at www.riversidehomelesscounts.com. Volunteers must be willing and able to walk into areas where homeless people might be living, and conduct the brief survey on streets, in abandoned buildings, at freeway overpasses and underpasses, in vehicles, encampments and other areas. The survey is scheduled from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Volunteers are also being sought to go to places where homeless people may be receiving services, such as soup kitchens, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Each volunteer will be required to participate in a 90-minute orientation.  A schedule of orientations throughout the county is available on the website.

In 2013, 2,098 homeless people were identified in Riverside County during the annual survey.

For more information, please send an email to RivCoPIT@RiversideDPSS.org or (951) 358-4470.
