4 Wheel City's "Welcome to Reality Tour" will be making a stop at "The Underground" in Temple University's Student Center Complex, 13th Street and Montgomery Avenue at 1 pm on November 3, 2008. 4 Wheel City is an urban entertainment group and disability awareness movement started by Namel "Tapwaterz" Norris, rapper, and Ricardo "Rickfire" Velasquez, producer, two talented hip-hop artists who use wheelchairs since sustaining injuries from gun violence. Their mission is to use hip-hop music and culture to create more awareness and positive opportunities for people with disabilities, to inspire people not to give up in life, and to raise funds for spinal cord injury research.
