AllHipHop Staff

A number of rappers, R&B singers and celebrities will gather in Atlanta tomorrow (October 1) for a special charity project to raise money for recent flood victims in the city.

Jermaine Dupri, Nelly and V-103 will present Atlanta Stand Up: Jermaine Dupri & Nelly Charity Celebrity Bowling Tournament.

The goal of the tournament is to raise funds for the victims of severe flooding in Atlanta, where 17 counties in the state have been disaster areas, making the region eligible for federal disaster assistance.

In addition to Jermaine Dupri and Nelly, rappers and artists like Outkast’s Big Boi, Polow Da Don, Nitty, Lil Ronnie, Bryan Michael Cox and T.I.’s Grand Hustle label will compete in the tournament, which will donate all proceeds to the flood victims.

Jermaine Dupri and Nelly’s Charity Celebrity Bowling Tournament takes place tomorrow at Red Carpet Lanes in Atlanta.

Hometown rappers Ludacris and T.I. have already donated $10,000 each with the Home Depot and Sam’s Club to help over 20,000 people impacted by the flooding, which has caused an estimated $61 million dollars in damages.
