Hip Hop Has Heart, Helps Katrina Victims

Hip Hop frequently gets a bad rap (pun intended) for promoting expensive lifestyles, glamorizing violence and misogyny. However, you know despite what’s pushed on the airwaves and propaganda, Hip Hop has always been about taking care of others and the community when it can. Several well-known Hip Hop celebs have hooked up to help those affected by Katrina. Hip Hop Wired reports: 

Yes, it’s been a stand out year for Aristotle and his By Any Means crew. However, he isn’t too big to not give back to the community.

Armed with Dorell Wright of the Philadelphia 76ers and The Hood Chef, the director of Nas’ “Bye Baby” fed over 500 people in the New York City area affected by Hurricane Sandy. Starting their trek in the West Brighton section of Staten Island, the fully functioning food truck went to Brooklyn’s Coney Island, The Rockaways in Queens, and ended with stops at homeless shelters in the Bronx and, finally, Manhattan.

The food drive was made possible by Dorell Wright’s D Wright Way foundation and a charitable donation from the NBA sharpshooter. Check out the photos and videos from the run after the kick.
