Texas Rappers Slim Thug, Z-Ro, Mike Jones and Others Fill Four 18-Wheeler Trucks For Students
(AllHipHop News) A group of Texas-based Hip-Hop artists have launched a back to school supply drive to support students heading to school in Houston next week.
Slim Thug, Mike Jones, Z RO, Dorrough Music, Go Yayo, Trapboy Freddy, DSR, Flexinfab, and Yellow Beezy are working with Radio One in Dallas.
The rappers are trying to fill four 18-wheeler trucks, with donated school supplies for residents in North Texas.
The students, who return to school on Monday (September 11), are still reeling from the impact of Hurricane Harvey, which dumped over 50 inches of water on the city and displaced over 1 million people.
So far, rappers have filled two of the 18-wheelers.
“As soon as we saw the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, we knew instantly that we had to lend our support in every way possible,” said Tami Honesty, vice president and general manager, Radio One Dallas.
This Sunday, with the aid of Walmart and the Godsey Martin Law Firm, the rapper's will deliver the 18-wheelers the Houston Independent School District.
The rappers will leave the donation site in Houston and head straight to the studio, to create a song to aid those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
The song will be mixed, mastered, and projected to be released on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. All proceeds from the downloads will go to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
