Recipients included James Benton (liver), Donna Arnold (pancreas and kidney), Thomas Elliot (lungs) and Brian Polk (kidney). CBS brought the four together earlier this month to meet Henryâ€™s mom. â€œFor him to live on,â€ she said of her son. â€œI mean, he brought me new family.

In an interview with Hustler Magazine, Ice Cube revealed that he turned down the opportunity to be inÂ Menace II Society and which MC’s out today impresses him. Check out Hustlermagazine.com for The full interview.
Ever turned down a role you should have taken? I was offeredÂ Menace II Society , but I turned it down because I had just doneÂ Boyz N the Hood. I didnâ€™t want to get stuck playing just characters from the hood.
Are you impressed by any new MCs?I like what Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco are doing and where they are taking hip-hop. Those are good styles that are making hip-hop grow. Itâ€™s not dying as people say just because the mainstream is not paying attention anymore. Itâ€™s just back to where it came fromâ€”underground. In the â€™90s, mainstream took hip-hop and tried to play it out. Rap is something that canâ€™t die because itâ€™s the voice of the youth. There is always something to be said by somebody somewhere, and thereâ€™s so many ways to say it now.
