Trae tha Truth Is Rescuing Victims of Hurricane Harvey, Houston Rappers Assisting on Social Media [VIDEO]
The city of Houston is currently under water and the ongoing rain from Hurricane Harvey is causing catastrophic flooding all over the city and in surrounding areas.
Several rappers from the Houston area have been using their social media platforms to deliver disaster information and mobilize relief efforts for the citizens of H-Town.
Houston legend Trae tha Truth has been on the front lines of the relief efforts in the flooded city. The Rap-A-Lot artist was in a boat rescuing people who were trapped in their flooded homes. While being interviewed on Fox26, he urged people who have boats and trucks to come and help in anyway they can. He said folks need supplies, clothes and food as well.
Other Houstonians like Baby Bash is stuck inside his home and is trying to figure out how he's going to help his city. The rapper is fine and well but told TMZ that the chaos and looting is already starting in Houston.
"It's chaos, tragedy," he said. "It's almost like a biblical, historical flood. We just want people to understand this is real, this is not no joke. This is devastating.The flood is one thing. And then, the chaos and the anarchy and the craziness and the people just desperate to steal to survive is gonna be a whole other issue."
Meanwhile, fellow H-Town rappers Slim Thug, Paul Wall and Devin the Dude have been posting disaster information on their Instagram accounts.
As we reported earlier, Houston native Beyoncé vowed to do everything she can to help the victims in her beloved city. In a statement given to the Chronicle, the pop superstar said, “My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help. I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus) to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”
If you want to help Houston and other affected areas in Texas, the Chronicle posted a list of how you can donate and assist.
Prayers up for Houston.
