(AllHipHop News) Millions of United States residents are still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Roc Nation rapper Vic Mensa is looking to do his part to help some of those people.
The Grammy-nominated artist is partnering with The Recording Academy's MusiCares charity to support hurricane relief efforts. Coast-to-coast pop-up shows have been scheduled later this month where fans can donate toiletries, school supplies, diapers, and other items.
“With so many heartbreaking events happening across the world, I’m eager to lend my support to victims of the recent hurricanes and other natural disasters,” says Mensa. “MusiCares initiative is doing amazing things on behalf of the music community so it’s a perfect match.”
The shows start on Monday, September 25 in Los Angeles and close out in New York City on Saturday, September 30. A livestream of the NYC performance will broadcast via the Tidal entertainment platform beginning at 9:30 pm ET. Viewers will also be able to donate to the MusiCares fund throughout the concert.
Mensa released his debut studio album, The Autobiography, on July 28. The 24-year-old Chicago-raised performer is also set to open for Jay-Z on the "4:44 Tour" starting October 27 in Anaheim, California.
