I began on what has become the #10Day tape when I was still 17, about 2 weeks from my 18th birthday. I was a senior at Jones College Prep in Chicago Il, and infamous among my peers and the administration as the rebellious cool kid, complete with highjinks, 4 HighLifeMonopoly

catchphrases and cigarettes. I smoked alot of cigarettes in highshool. I also smoked a lot of weed. One day before school me and my guys Jack Dolan and Cadien James got bumped chiefin down the street from the school. We were arrested, suspended and had our graduation privilages stripped.

true. But from the moment I got in the police car I felt like a different person. Like things were going to be different from that point forward. Like not necessarily as if I knew shit was gonna get really good. But the realization that shit could get very very bad. Like I knew I wanted to rap, but i wasn’t really workin hard to achieve goals I had set up, and if I wasn’t gonna rap then I definitely wasn’t on the road to college. So I began recording

My #10Day tape during my 2 week vacation and really became dedicated to my profession and even came up with a new psuedonym: Chance The Rapper. 2 packed listening parties, 2 great music videos, a soldout concert, A Newspaper Coverstory, A roadtrip to SouthXSouthwest, and 12 months later #10Day is done and building an amazing buzz. I really want to thank my Executive Engineer, Producer and friend L-Boog of THEMpeople ( @ LBoogieTHEM ) for putting together such an amazing project with me. And I want to definitely thank my Director and close friend Austin Vesely ( @AustinVesely ) for helping me develope and express the ideas I had with #10Day. Expect more from us in 2012 and thanks so much for making my entire 18th yr so crackin. 19 should be great.

Why People Love Twitter The usefulness of Twitter is not readily as obvious to some people as Facebook;

although it may be more addictive once you get the hang of Tweeting; you get more immediate responses and it seems to live somewhere between the worlds of email, instant messaging and blogging. Twitter encourages constant “linking out� to anywhere and, in that respect, is more analogous to a pure search engine; another way to find people and content all over the Net. Twitter has quickly built brand awareness and a loyal following, especially among the technically adept; bloggers, online marketers, evangelists, basically anyone with something to promote seem to find Twitter ex-

WHO IS TRAYVON MARTIN ? Trayvonwas the son of Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, who were divorced in 1999.[29] According to the Sanford police incident report of Trayvon Martin’s death, he was 6’0” tall and weighed 160 pounds; however, his family said he was actually 6-foot-3 and weighed at most 150 pounds.[30] He was a high school junior in the Miami area of south Florida and had turned 17 three weeks before his death.[31] [32] Martin lived with his mother and older brother in Miami Gardens, Florida. On the day he was shot, he was visiting his father and his father’s fiancée at her townhome in The Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, Florida. -The Murder Is Free Agin

NFORD, Florida (Reuters) George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer charged with second-degree murder in the killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, was released early on Monday from a Florida county jail on $150,000 bail. Wearing a brown jacket, jeans and carrying a brown paper bag, Zimmerman walked out of the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Florida, moments after midnight after posting bail and meeting other conditions set for his release at a hearing on Friday. Zimmerman was met by another man and quickly climbed into a latemodel white BMW that drove off. He made no comments to a handful of reporters gathered outside the jail. Under conditions set by Judge Kenneth Lester Jr., Zimmerman

must wear an electronic monitoring device and he may be allowed to leave the state. He also must observe a dusk-to-dawn curfew and is prohibited from consuming illegal drugs or alcohol or possessing a firearm. Attorney Ben Crump, who represents Martin’s parents, said the family was “praying and trying to trust” in the judicial process that allowed Zimmerman to be released from jail but hoped that he would not remain free for long. “They were heavy hearted that the killer of their son was released from jail,” Crump told Reuters. “However, they hope that his freedom is temporary because the pain he has caused their family is permanent. They’re never going to get Trayvon back.” Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara, appearing in on CBS’s “This Morning” program, said there had been no recent threats against his client but his whereabouts still are expected to remain secret until his next appearance in court.

Zimmerman shot and killed Martin in a gated community in Sanford in central Florida on February 26 in an incident that prompted civil rights protests and a national debate over guns, selfdefense laws and race in America. No date has been set for Zimmerman’s trial, but court documents released on Monday said he had been ordered to appear before Judge Lester for his arraignment on the murder charge in court in Sanford at 1:30 p.m.


The court filings also showed that Zimmerman entered a written plea of not guilty and requested a trial by jury when he made his initial appearance in court on April 12. Zimmerman, who is white and Hispanic, has said he shot the 17-year-old Martin, who lived near Miami, in self-defense. The confrontation occurred as Martin was returning to the home of his father’s fiancee in the community after buying candy from a convenience store. Police initially declined to arrest Zimmerman, citing Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which allows people to use deadly force when they believe they are in danger of being killed or suffering great bodily harm. The lack of an arrest led thousands to march in protest rallies in Sanford and across the country. The public outrage also forced the Sanford police chief and regularly assigned prosecutor to step aside. Bill Lee, who was head of the Sanford Police Department when Martin was shot dead, was to resign on Monday night under terms of a formal separation agreement, the city said. At the Friday hearing, Zimmerman apologized to Martin’s family, stunning a rapt courtroom after he appeared in a suit and tie and with shackles around his waist and wrists. Zimmerman’s lawyer had requested bail of no more than $15,000. Prosecutors opposed his release and sought bail of $1 million.
