The 5th Annual Boss Life Ball took place in Houston, Texas at the Union Station on Sunday, January 14th 2018. I have been following Houston mogul and rapper Slim Thug on social media and I’ve watched him make great impact in our city. I couldn’t deny the invite and it was an honor gathering interviews and footage of the event.
About the event
Despite the 40 degree freezing temperature, nothing stopped us from gracing the red carpet. The soirée commenced with an exclusive red carpet directed by Lemon Lime Light Media. The ladies and gentlemen looked so dapper.

Houston is the 4th largest city in the country but yet a small world. I saw a lot of familiar faces from media bloggers to entertainers and what a great way to kick off this new year !

We all gathered at the boss life ball to show support and raise funds for the boss life scholarship program. I had a quick chat with Slim Thug on the red carpet that evening and he is passionate about providing education to the youth and encouraging them to have a strong work ethic in order to reach their goals. He also promotes higher education and entrepreneurship. He thinks that it is important because a common misconception is that a a young black man aspires to either be an entertainer or professional athlete. Let’s not forget about the young men that want to be an entrepreneur, be a doctor, teacher or engineer.” The whole idea is to make bosses”.
The Boss Life Foundation is equipped with strong leaders to mentor young kids and teach them about self worth, self growth, parenting skills and education skills to be successful in the real world.
