The usual idea is that hip hop stars are gangsters and that they are up to no good. However, the rappers and the gangsters have come up with a benefit concert for the Haitian victims of the sinister earthquake. Desdamona, Ernie Rhodes, Illuminous 3, DJ Snuggles, Shiz, Mac Spillz, Ridiculous, Aquafresh, the 3 Kings Soundsystem and others are taking part in the benefit show at the Nomad Pub on the West Bank.
It is being spearheaded by the Haitian blooded Kanser MC Unicus and would start at 7pm. There is no set limit for the tickets and the idea is to pay as much as you can and then gain entry. All the money you pay would go towards the earthquake relief funds. Most people believe hip hop encourages people to commit crimes and it is usually associated with violence and crime.
However this time around, the benefit show would help the land of Anacaona in its time of need. Many thousands are believed to be dead and the rescue efforts are still going on, notwithstanding the amount of money that has already poured in. Haiti needs your help, and it needs a lot of it!
