    It’s been a rough period for Texas, as Houston has been devastated by damages in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, but everyone is doing whatever they can to help out.

    While some are stepping up to make donations to organizations to help residents of the city, and others are heading down there to assist in any way needed, entertainers are using their platforms to raise funds. Immortal Technique is headlining a Hurricane Harvey benefit concert in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, Sept. 23, and will be joined by a star-studded roster.

    Also on the concert bill is Brother Ali, Slug of Atmosphere, Chino XL, Emilio Rojas, Bobby Sessions and plenty more, with all of the proceeds going to local charities that are working to aid those who have been affected by the storm.

    Technique also gives an explanation as to why the concert is being held at The Korova in San Antonio.

    “The venue in San Antonio was chosen because as I said before we were told by people in Texas that holding it in Houston was going to be logistically impossible and potentially divert immediate resources,” the rapper writes. “I appreciate the advice of the residents of Texas and I really appreciate the venue Korova for helping us find sponsors and giving the full door for the people.”

    He also thanks those that worked with him to help put together the concert, which they hope will make a big difference for the community.

    “I want to extend my appreciation to everyone who came forward to help put this together,” he continues. “Not just the artists but the local residents, promoters, sponsors, venue and all of the staff that will be killing themselves behind the scenes. We look forward to seeing you all down there in San Antonio on Sept.23rd.”

    In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, we announced earlier this week that myself and others would be doing a concert Sept. 23rd in San Antonio, TX where 100% of the proceeds will go directly to local charities on the ground helping people. The venue in San Antonio was chosen because as I said before we were told by people in Texas that holding it in Houston was going to be logistically impossible and potentially divert immediate resources. I appreciate the advice of the residents of Texas and I really appreciate the venue Korova for helping us find sponsors and giving the full door for the people. As of now the lineup ( we are still waiting on one or two more names so the flyer may be updated but the date and venue are solid) Immortal Technique, Slug of Atmosphere, Brother Ali, ChinoXL, K-Rino, Poison Pen, Emilio Rojas, Swave Sevah, Bobby Sessions, Dj Static Dj GiJoe And more TBA I want to extend my appreciation to everyone who came forward to help put this together. Not just the artists but the local residents, promoters, sponsors, venue and all of the staff that will be killing themselves behind the scenes. We look forward to seeing you all down there in San Antonio on Sept.23rd. There were some more artists from Texas and abroad that wanted to come but their situation is tentative so we may announce more artists. Also if the venue sells out early then we may add another date as well. Eid mubarak to my supporters who celebrate it. We should remember to always remain humble and appreciate the things we take for granted that others are dying without. I am particularly humbled by the support across the board and the unity I have witnessed in the wake of this. I look forward to seeing you in Texas. We will also be taking donations at the door for clothes and canned food. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Here is the ticket link but I will put it in my bio… https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/mobile/index/1555099?utm_medium=bks Peace & Respect. #immortaltechnique #hurricaneharvey #houston #SanAntonio See you at @korovasa Sept.23rd !!!
