The411: The first Saturday in May attracts a lot of celebrities to the Bluegrass state. I received a call that rapper Mike Jones wanted to attend a Derby event. I had the honor to make that happen. When Jones arrived at "The Gala", I was confused because he looked nothing like his photo. He had lost a lot of weight and was full of smiles. The rapper was courteous and took photos with everyone who asked. By the time, I got to him he had taken the shirt off his back to give to a fan.
He even talked to one of my good friends about his battle with weight and gave some advice. Anticipate an endorsement for this rapper because of how he lost the weight. When it becomes official I will let you know.
