Travis Scott, Migos, & Lil Yachty Host ‘Black Panther’ Screenings for Kids
Travis Scott, Migos, and Lil Yachty are making sure their young fans get to see Black Panther.
La Flame, who appears on “Big Shots” off the movie’s soundtrack, rented out two theaters in Stafford, Texas to screen the Marvel blockbuster, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira.
“I LOVED BLACK PANTHER SO MUCH RENTED TWO MOVIE THEATHRES FOR THE KIDS TO WATCH,” he wrote on Instagram.
Lil Yachty and Offset joined the movement by attending a screening that was organized by “This Is Us” writer Jas Waters at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre for 500 foster and at-risk youth, according to TMZ. “We just wanted to watch this movie with y’all,” said Lil Boat. “We wanted y’all to see it and have a good time.”
“This Is Us” star Lonnie Chavis, who plays young Randall, was also on hand for the movie screening. Waters took to social media and added a note of gratitude for Migos, who pitched in as well. “Thank you Offset & Lil Yachty for coming to welcome the kids! Thank you MIGOS for buying out the rest of the theater. And making sure the kids had an UNFORGETTABLE #BlackPanther experience. #GODreamers.”
Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith also treated 1,000 kids in his hometown of Watts to a special screening of the Ryan Coogler-directed film, which topped the weekend box office with $192 million, setting a record for the fifth largest three-day domestic opening in history.
