Baltimore’s Hip-hop/Arts Community Pays Tribute to Derrick ‘Ooh’ Jones on 40th Birthday

Derrick ‘Ooh’ Jones was a Baltimore Hip-hop artist and community activist who, among other efforts, co-founded #SAVEADOPEBOY with Tiffany Welch (featured in video), an organization whose mission it is to help young men involved in the drug trade. On May 28, 2016, approximately two years after Ooh’s passing, Baltimore’s Hip-hop and arts community came together to pay him tribute, and to celebrate his 40th birthday.
