FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Join us on September 30, 2017 for Hip Hop 4 The People – A national day of unity and hurricane relief for Houston, Florida and the Caribbean.
In September 2017, the states of Texas, Florida and the Caribbean were in a state of emergency as a Category 3-5 hurricane devastated more than a
million people who were left without homes, food, clean water and many personal belongings. On, September 30, 2017 more than 10 cities will
unite again promoting the culture of hip hop within their communities to collect relief supplies and monetary donations to aide the people in Texas,
Florida and the Caribbean. Hip Hop 4 The People is the 3rd installment of “Hip Hop 4”.
In 2010, over 32 cities gathered; leaders, youth, and supporters in the hip hop community, hosting an event to collect monetary donations as well as
earthquake relief items, for the catastrophic earthquake that hit Haiti. The simultaneous live stream created a historic fundraising event called Hip
Hop 4 Haiti.
From the huge response and support, founder YoNasDa Lonewolf (national organizer/activist/and hip hop artist) decided to do it again for the
people of Flint, MI in 2016. This time over 42 cities, nationally and internationally, raised monetary donations to purchase lead removal
water filters that were delivered to Flint.
“The strength that hip hop encompasses will bring together the community like no other, because hip hop is UNIVERSAL!”
Hip Hop 4 The People: Like in past Hip Hop 4 events, the founder YoNasda Lonewolf, was asked, “Why not wait to put on a bigger event?” and her response remains the same; “It’s not about how BIG you want it. It’s about doing something NOW!” With that being said Hip Hop 4 The People has evolved into an event that will not only be going on in over 10 cities on the same day, but will be able to viewed worldwide on HipHop4.net and other partnering media outlet apps and websites such as OhSo Radio. Within just under 12 days, Hip Hop 4 founder, YoNasDa Lonewolf, was able to network to organize and confirm over ten (10) cities/states nationwide to come together through hip hop to provide for the hurricane relief. With notable hip hop personalities, performers, and icons such as Zoey Dollaz, Styles P, YG, Monifa, Nikki D, and MC Lyte . “Hip Hop 4 The People” has
partnered up with “24 Hours of Peace” brought by Mayor Ras Baraka and Hakim Green of Newark, NJ, who have supported with Hip Hop 4 Haiti
and Hip Hop 4 Flint. With the partnership of 24 Hours of Peace the city of Newark will be hosting a TWO-day event on September 29h AND 30th
to expand on message and cause. Other partnerships such as CommunityActionNow.Org will allow Hip Hop 4 to provide tools to support the
growing needs of a community, identifying and addressing the needs of vulnerable families, and empowering those within to become advocates for
their communities which is a part of their mission.
“The Caribbean is connected to one another. We depend on Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico has lost EVERYTHING. We need
everything, we have lost EVERYTHING!”
