Jas Prince Steps In With Massive Amounts Of Bottled Water For Houston
(AllHipHop News) Music executive Jas Prince has stepped in to help stop the price gouging of water in his hometown of Houston, which has been left devastated in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
Jas became upset when he read reports of retailers, both big and small, hiking up the prices of bottled water, where some stores are selling packs for almost $50.
The Houston native has an investment in a water company called Honey Water, which is based out of Canada.
According to TMZ.com , Jas and business partners Chris Kotz and Vivian K. Gomez have stepped up and donated 20,000 cases of water to the city of Houston.
"It's f**king ridiculous that people instead of coming together to help one another are trying to profit from such a heartbreaking disaster,” Jas Prince said. “That doesn't sit well with me and I won't allow that in my city."
Jas, who is credited with discovering and signing Drake, is also the son of Rap-A-Lot Records founder, James Prince.
