Rapper T.I. was in Philadelphia for the July 23 weekend to co-host the Charlie Mack Party 4 Peace Celebrity Weekend to promote peace through the streets where a certain Fresh Prince once roamed.

Hoping to prevent rising violence and crime, Charlie Mack teamed up with longtime friend Will Smith, along with stars Nia Long, T.I., Tim Thomas, and more to participate in a three-day event where they traveled around Philadelphia to rally for an anti-violence campaign as well as raise funds for Mothers in Charge, a community support organization led by Dorothy Johnson-Speight for families who faced experiences with violence.

On Friday, July 23, a music festival was held to prepare for a weekend of peace and pleasantness, followed by the Love for the Kids Luncheon and the White Party the next day. The last day was youth-friendly, with asthma screenings and asthma education scheduled for children, a celebrities meet-and-greet for the kids, and their 13th annual celebrity basketball game.

“As a native Philadelphian, I wanted to provide young people with a vehicle to interact with today’s entertainment industry actors/actresses and professional sports players, however, it was after the loss of my two brothers that I saw an even greater need to create a fundraising benefit to assist anti-violence organizations,” Mack said to AllHipHop.com.
