Hollywood, CA.-----------"Peace Pipe" viral hip hop star Emerson Windy announces official apology to Native American community after backlash from controversial music video. In an effort to address those offended, Emerson Windy issued a public response in a YouTube video. He also agreed to donate the infamous headpiece to Littlefeather, a representative from the Kiowa Apache tribe in Anadarko, Oklahoma that graciously accepted for the chief. In response to Emerson Windy, Native American Mark Osbourne stated, “…come see our families and hear our legacy and teachings…” “…come understand what the items we have mean…and see how they are used.” “This is what real Ogichida (warriors) do.” Indian Country Today has even written a piece on Emerson Windy’s apology. Native American tribes have also invited Emerson to a Peace Pipe ceremony as a way to show unity. Before its removal, “Peace Pipe” received more than 14 Million views on the hit website WorldStarHipHop.com.

In 2012 Emerson Windy continued his life-long charitable work by donating a restored 1963 Chevy Impala from his own collection to the Cruise for the Cause event to raise money for the Emilio Nares Foundation, a foundation that helps families with children with cancer. Emerson Windy founded the #STOPHOMELESSNESS campaign as a promise to his late mother that he would use his success and celebrity for positivity and is a cause close to his heart. Emerson Windy hopes to be a positive role model for his fans he refers to as his Windyians.

Emerson Windy took the Hip Hop world by storm in 2012 after being scouted by Universal Music Group for distribution deal as a music producer and writer for big time rappers. Using that visibility, in the Fall of 2013 Emerson launched his #STOPHOMELESSNESS Campaign to raise awareness in communities across the country. In the music video for “On My Way Downtown,” Emerson Windy heads to New York City’s Times Square neighborhood, a capital for homelessness to coincide with promotion for his #STOPHOMELESSNESS campaign where he rose awareness of homelessness in America and challenged his fans to do what they could to help.

In 2014 Emerson Windy returned to the studio to record new music for “Herojuana,” a collaboration with big-time rappers like Lil’ Wayne, 2 Chainz, Birdman, Raekwon, Tooley Wopp and Bobbii Bon Jovi. With producers like Timbaland, Mike Will Made It, DJ Mustard, !llmind and The Nominees help to create the ultimate mixtape. “Herojuana” is currently available to download on Datpiff.com. His recent FM radio single “Money Up” featuring 2 Chainz & Hofa Bang is available at major digital retail outlets like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and more. Emerson is signed to his own independent label—Pearl Harbor Entertainment.

Emerson Windy prides himself on being a philanthropic artist among the tumultuous world of Hip Hop stars and rappers. With 4,400 YouTube subscribers, 77k likes on Facebook and 109k followers on Twitter, Windy shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
