Japanese hip-hop legend DJ Honda has announced that he will be releasing a charity single to help aid relief efforts in his disaster-stricken home country.

According to his reps, the 'Travelin' Man' producer will be teaming up with several international artists to release a single entitled 'Relief for Japan.'

"[DJ Honda] has recruited some of the world's most talented artists to become involved and donate their services for a good cause," Honda's rep revealed.

"Thank you to all who have reached out to me. My fam, staff & I are safe. Please say a prayer to all of the victims in my country who have passed away/are injured during this tragedy," Honda wrote on his website.

The earthquake and Tsunami, which struck Japan and damaged a nuclear power plant, is being called the worst nuclear incident since the 1986 meltdown in Chernobyl, rated at the highest threat level. Thus far 13,500 people are confirmed dead, with another 200,000 evacuated from the city of Fukushima.

DJ Honda is a world-renowned turntablist who has released over a dozen albums, and worked with rappers from Mos Def and De La Soul to M.O.P. and Gravediggaz.

Proceeds from Honda's 'Relief for Japan' single will go towards victims of the tsunami, and the Japanese Red Cross Society. For more information, visit here.
