Hurricane Harvey has left many people in Houston to start fresh.
Havoc brought on by the weather may have hurt many in Houston, but it also has compelled compassion in many around the country. For one, as we recently shared here, Kevin Hart challenged some celebrities to step up and assist in helping Houstonians rebuild. This is a challenge many quickly accepted. Celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, and T.I. all answered Hart’s call.
Additionally, James Harden is said to have donated $1 million dollars to the relief efforts. According to Hip Hop DX, Harden made the announcement yesterday, September 2nd. Harden said Houston is home.
He is also the Guard on the Houston Rockets.
Furthermore, Chamillionaire and Trae Tha Truth linked up to help those incarcerated and affected by Hurricane Harvey. The two brought pizza and water to inmates in Jefferson County jail. Trae Tha Truth also shared photos and video footage from the experience on Instagram yesterday.
With the way Hip Hop Artists, and their music, have been marketed in media historically- it is beautiful to see Hip Hop being able to make a difference in such a time as this and be recognized for it.
This is what the culture is and more of what it needs- cheers, to Hip Hop!
