As the Thanksgiving
holiday approaches, powerhouse record labels Rap-A-Lot, Swisha House and Cash
Money Records are spearheading Thanksgiving relief efforts in Houston, Texas and
Baton Rouge Louisiana.
In Houston, Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J. Prince teams up with Swisha House Records
and Houston’s celebrated Club Visions to Feed the Houston’s homeless.
Hosted by Bun-B, Mike Jones & Slim Thug, the Thanksgiving
“Feed the Homeless” Drive is geared to feed the homeless and displaced
evacuees of Hurricane Katrina on Thanksgiving Day.
In Baton Rouge, Cash Money Records founders Ronald 'Slim' Williams and Bryan
'Birdman' Williams, will host their annual Turkey Giveaway to more than 2000
evacuees of Hurricane Katrina.
The label will provide survivors and displaced residents of
the crisis with a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner with all the holiday trimmings.
"So many of our friends and family were devastated by this
terrible tragedy, we wanted to do something a little more elaborate this year
to address the needs of the people who have lost so much and might not have
the resources to remember the holiday," Slim told AllHipHop.com in a statement.
"We want to show our love and support for these courageous survivors who
never, ever give up."
Williams' own home and offices were destroyed by Katrina, as
his were brother's and other members of the Cash Money family.
Both record labels have led relief efforts in their cities on
behalf of the victims of Hurricane’s Katrina and Rita.
