Ricky B was born and raised in the 7th Ward St. Bernard Housing Projects and several peers didn't live to see their twenties. Fortunately, he was able to survive his environment by being actively involved in his music as an emcee. Ricky realized not every youth growing up in a similar environment will have the opportunities he was presented.
In giving back to his community, Ricky B has established a foundation entitled "TEAMMAKEEMSCREAM." Several youths within their communities are parentless as a result of parent(s) being incarcerated. The foundation is to assist parentless children transportation to commute regular visits to connect with their parent(s) imprisoned.
Ricky has a compassion for youths especially those misguided and lacking positive role models to educate, equip and lead them by example. His goal is to demonstrate someone cares regardless of their parents situation.
TEAMMAKEEMSCREAM is also affiliated with other alliances artists and DJ's who perform in the city of New Orleans; businesses, church ministries, sports teams and several other entities as well. Supporters and sponsors of TEAMMAKEEMSCREAM business logos are represented on signature t-shirts screaming out of the mouth of the foundation's logo. The t-shirts are an appreciation to promote sponsors and supporters of the foundation.
