Busta Rhymes, Black Thought, Akon & More to Headline ‘Power to the People’ Benefit Concert for Puerto Rico
Busta Rhymes, Yandel, Akon, French Montana, dead prez, and more are set to headline a benefit concert for Puerto Rico, which is still suffering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria last year.
The star-studded concert, Power to the People, will take place on March 18 in San Juan. The concert will also include performances by Lupe Fiasco, Black Star (Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli), Ghostface Killah, Ryan Leslie, B.o.B., Jeremih, Jay Electronica and Black Thought, among others. The event will be hosted by Bazaar Royale and The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee.
As of late January 2018, approximately 450,000 of Puerto Rico’s 1.5 million electricity customers were still without power, and those who did have power suffered frequent blackouts, according to The Atlantic. Hurricane Maria, which hit in September 2017, is regarded as the worst natural disaster on record in Dominica and Puerto Rico.
The concert will be held at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico and will be sponsored by Lottery.com. The proceeds will benefit Puerto Rico.
